Deepika Padukone has confirmed that she would be part of a superhero film. The actress, who turned producer with Meghna Gulzar's upcoming film Chhapaak, said that she is developing the superhero project with a friend.
The actress told Filmfare, "Yes, I’m working on it. I hope it happens. There’s no script as yet. It’s something my friend and I are developing. I was in the plane with a friend from the industry and talking about the movies we’d like to make. We realised that this superhero film is something we’d like to make. It’s a seed we’re nurturing.”
