Actress Deepika Padukone, who is currently enjoying praises for ‘Gehraiyaan‘, has confirmed that she is working on a film on her father and ace badminton player Prakash Padukone‘s life and career. She recently produced ’83 featuring Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan‘s directorial.

Recently in an interview, Deepika said that she is working on the project. She also recalled the struggles her father faced while putting Indian sports on the global map. She went on to say that Prakash Padukone was one of the first Indian athletes to put India on the global map, even before the Indian cricket team won the 1983 World Cup.

While speaking on Cyrus Broacha’s show, the actress spoke about how her father trained with limited resources. She revealed that he trained in a marriage hall. She also said that if he had the facilities that athletes in India have today, then he’d be far more superior.

Meanwhile, Deepika penned a thank you note for her fans on Friday for showering love on ‘Gehraiyaan’. Sharing stills from the film on Instagram, she wrote, “The response to Gehraiyaan has been dizzying to say the least! ‘Alisha’ has been my most visceral, indelible and delicious experience as an artist. While I am ecstatic and overwhelmed, I am also truly grateful and humbled!🙏🏽”

On the work front, Deepika will be next seen in ‘Pathan‘, ‘Fighter‘, ‘Project K’ and ‘The Intern’ remake.
