Deepika Padukone is currently basking in the success of Fighter, as the film is slowly inching towards the 200-Crore mark
After a strong opening week, Fighter continues to climb towards the 200-Crore mark. On Day 16, the film earned Rs 1.75 crore in the domestic market, bringing its total earnings to Rs 189.25 crore. This follows a week where Fighter raked in an impressive Rs 146.5 crore, showcasing its peak performance. Notably, this marks the first on-screen pairing of Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, alongside Anil Kapoor, Akshay Oberoi, and Karan Singh Grover in supporting roles.
While riding the wave of success, Deepika Padukone did not forget to mark a special milestone for her film, Gehraiyaan (2022). The gripping romance-thriller completed its second anniversary on February 11, and Deepika treated fans with a rare behind-the-scenes clip. In a playful twist, it's revealed Gehraiyaan holds the top spot on her personal watchlist at home. The video captures a candid moment where Deepika is engaged in an activity, only to be interrupted by a comment off-camera. Her instant guilty expression adds a touch of humour and intrigue, leaving viewers curious about what she was up to.
While not universally acclaimed, Gehraiyaan garnered praise for its technical aspects. Critics applauded the captivating soundtrack, stunning cinematography, and the visual language that brought the story to life. The performances of the cast, particularly Deepika Padukone, also received applause. However, the film's narrative, screenplay, and climax left some viewers wanting more. Notably, this project marked the first collaboration between Deepika and Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and Dhairya Karwa, as well as director Shakun Batra.
However, Deepika’s cinematic slate promises excitement with two major upcoming projects. First up, Kalki 2898 AD pairs her with South Indian superstar Prabhas, marking their first on-screen collaboration. The film's futuristic setting promises a unique experience for audiences. Next, Singham Again brings Deepika together with Ajay Devgn for the first time. This action-packed ensemble film also boasts an impressive cast, including Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Tiger Shroff, Arjun Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, and Shweta Tiwari. The prospect of Deepika sharing screen space with such diverse talent is sure to generate buzz.
With these diverse and promising projects, the 38-year-old actress is poised for another exciting chapter in her already successful career in 2024.
