Karan Johar directed Deepika Padukone but it’s not a film!
It’s happening for the first time that Karan Johar and Deepika Padukone are together as director and actor for any project. Yes! Karan Johar has recently directed Deepika for a high profile Ad film under the banner of Dharma 2.0.
Dharma 2.0 is the sister concern of Dharma Productions that is specifically focusing on advertisement and branding films. And filmmaker Punit Malhotra spilled the beans on the new collaboration by posting a picture from the sets with the caption, ” Launched a new director at @DharmaTwoPointO today… our very own @karanjohar Thank you @deepikapadukone for a super fun shoot.”
Karan also shared a selfie with the ‘Padmavat’ actor with a caption, “Left Profilers!”
While Karan and Deepika share a very cordial bond, and he even produced her film ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’, he never directed her. Considering the sky-high success of Deepika, this should not be too surprising since the actress never worked with Salman Khan and Aamir Khan as well, who are considered the bosses of Bollywood.
Apart from enjoying the success of her highly controversial film ‘Padmavat’, Deepika is busy endorsing many international brands. Her next film that is based on the life of Mumbai mafia queen Sapna Didi is delayed as co-star Irrfan Khan is undergoing major treatment. Irrfan is diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor.
