Sooryavanshi, directed by Rohit Shetty, was planned to release in theatres on March 24, 2020. Regrettably, the Coronavirus-induced lockdown derailed the planned release. It’s been over a year and a half since the Akshay Kumar starrer was released. In the meantime, Rohit Shetty directed Cirkus stars Ranveer Singh, Varun Sharma, Pooja Hegde, and Jacqueline Fernandez and is said to be an adaption of William Shakespeare’s play “The Comedy of Errors.”
Deepika will make a cameo appearance in Cirkus and will also be featured in a song, according to sources. A insider has now revealed a fascinating fact about the actress’ role in the film.
The source informed Bollywood Hungama, “It is said that Deepika Padukone will reprise her character of Meenamma from Chennai Express (2013). It was also directed by Rohit Shetty and it ranks as one of the finest performances of her career. Nowadays, it’s rare to see actresses in a memorable, comic role. Meenamma was one such character that was unanimously loved and it’ll be interesting to see Deepika in that part in a funny film like Cirkus.”
A trade expert said, “Ranveer Singh and her wife Deepika Padukone are one of the hottest pairs of Bollywood. To see them together, even if it’s for one scene or song, will enhance the excitement for the film. And if Deepika will play Meenamma, it’ll be sone pe suhaga. One has to give it to Rohit Shetty. He thinks of such interesting stuff and he knows how to pull audiences to cinemas, whether it is getting Inspector Singham in Simmba (2018) or getting Singham and Simmba both in Sooryavanshi or getting Meenamma in Cirkus. Whenever it’ll release, it’s sure to generate tremendous hype.”
’83 will also include Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, in which the former plays Kapil Dev and the latter plays his wife. Deepika Padukone is also a co-producer on this highly anticipated sports picture, which is set to hit theatres in late 2021. Cirkus, on the other hand, may not make it this year and will be released in theatres in 2022.
