Ayan, who is currently on a victory lap, celebrating his film’s success, was asked about DP’s return as Shiva’s mother, Amrita. Seemingly trying to dodge the question, the director asked if the actress really featured in Part 1.
When shown the viral pictures, Ayan told Pinkvilla, “I think, it was in that particular screen. Also, the image is so dark, I can’t see the face of this actor.”
Lead actress Alia also added quipped, “I think, it’s what you want to see.” That said, Ayan added that they weren’t confirming Deepika’s part in the first instalment nor even the second.
This surprising twist to the tale comes amidst speculations that the actress will play the lead in the sequel that, according to reports will chronicle the lives of Shiva’s parents. Deepika was rumoured to feature as the leading lady alongside the likes of Ranveer Singh and even Hrithik Roshan. However, there has been no confirmation about the same.
Ayan, in a previous interaction, confirmed that he has officially begun work on the sequel. However, there is no tentative release date for the film.
