Deepika Padukone to front Bollywood’s first-ever female superhero movie

Meet our Indian Gal Gadot

Deepika Padukone, who just conquered not one, but two red carpets at the Met Gala 2018 and at Cannes, is all set to begin prepping up for her next movie project — a multi-crore female superhero franchise, with the actor at its helm, which is a first for Bollywood.

Inspired by Gal Gadot’s role in Wonder Woman, the sci-fi story is still in its initial stages with the script being penned. The first two installments are reportedly mounted on an extravagant budget of Rs 300 crore, for which bids are currently underway. 

Deepika’s costume and character will take after Gal’s, with a “special costume that will be designed for her character which will be custom-made to facilitate hardcore physical combat and movement,” reports Mumbai Mirror. The actor will soon kick off her training in mixed martial arts and various styles of hand-to-hand combat for the same.

The movie aims to hit the screens in 2019.

All the superstars in Deepika’s wardrobe:


Nothing quite says airport-ready as a statement brown tote, and on that, the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour delivers. Not one to play it safe with classic blacks, Deepika picked out a brown version of the handbag for herself to keep the pastels in her wardrobe company. Get yours here.


You know you’ve arrived when you have a Hèrmes Birkin casually slung on your arm like it’s no big deal. Considering that Deepika’s stardom has been years in the making, her tan Birkin friend dates back to when she and Sid Mallya were a thing.


When in doubt, look to Chanel for answers. Or stuff your problems in them; the Chanel Large Deauville tote bag’s generous proportions have got Deepika covered. From lazy athleisure outings at the airport to biker chic leather ensembles, this dove grey tote is as much a part of her as those enviable dimples. 


From pajamas to jumpsuits, Deepika has found a versatile companion in the Céline Phantom tote in Croc Skin Black. And you thought she needed Ranveer as arm candy. 


We had Deepika pegged as another Chanel fiend too, until she introduced her wardrobe to the striped goodness of Gucci Dionysus. Along with the signature tiger head spur clasp, this Gucci bag brings some colour-blocked fun to the party. If you like what you see, click here to take this baby home.
