Mumbai: Deepika Padukone who will next be seen in and as Piku ,is all geared to play a multi-tasker in the film.
Essaying the role of a modern-day working girl from Delhi, Deepika as Piku not only runs her home and takes care of her demanding father (Amitabh Bachchan) but also manages to strike a balance between her personal and professional life.
Says director Shoojit Sircar,“Piku is an architect, who like any other independent girl, works on her own terms, runs her own small business, is undecided on what will happen in life and has an old father to look after in a cosmopolitan city. In the film, I have tried to put the audience in between their everyday life. I want them to start living with them and dealing with their problems.“
