Deepika Padukone continues to make waves internationally.

A few days back the Bajirao Mastani star was in the news for her first ever red carpet appearance of the MTV european Music Awards 2016 where she and xXx: The Return of Xander Cage co-star Nina Dobrev presented an award to The Weeknd.

She is also filming for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next Padmavati with Ranveer Singh.

But a lesser known fact is that she is also shooting for renowned Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi's next. Here's her shooting for the film with director Majidi in Dhobi Ghat, Mumbai:

In a DNA report, the casting director of the film was quoted as saying, “It is an Indian story and will be shot in Mumbai, Delhi, parts of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan and Kashmir. It will take off towards the year-end or early 2017 and is a signature Majidi film with new takes on relationships and emotional quotients.”

Majid Majidi directed the film Children of Heaven, which was nominated to receive the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. His last film Muhammad: The Messenger of God tries to depict the life of Prophet Muhammad with historical and factual accuracy.

Deepika is starring in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel, Xiang, Tony Jaa, Samuel L. Jackson, Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose. The actress will be seen playing the role of a fierce huntress named Serena Unger. The film will release 19 January 2016.
