Actors Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan, who were paired together in the 2015 hit film Piku are all set to reunite on the big screen.

Though, the film was earlier supposed to be helmed by Honey Trehan, filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj has now taken the charge of directing this project. Bhardwaj has stepped in the director’s shoes owing to creative differences with Trehan.

“Due to different artistic visions of the film, Honey (Trehan) and I jointly came to the decision that it would be best if I took over as director and saw it through to the end,” Bhardwaj said in a statement.

Sharing similar views, Trehan said, “Owing to our differences in creative understanding, we have mutually and amicably decided that it would be best for our film if Vishal sir took over as director.”

The yet to titled Irrfan and Deepika-starrer will be produced by KriArj Entertainment and Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures.

“The film was always big, I respect the decision what Vishal Sir and Honey (Trehan) have taken together, we all are big family together. It’s a great collaboration, it’s a decision that Vishal Sir have taken for the betterment of the film and all of us,” Prerna Arora of KriArj Entertainment said.

The project is scheduled to go on floors in February end.
