Exclusive! Did you know that Deepika Padukone was a part of Taranveer Singh’s ‘Tuesdays & Fridays’? – Times of India


Assistant director and writer Taranveer Singh recently made his big Bollywood debut as a director with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Tuesdays & Fridays’. The film starred Anmol Thakeria and Jhataleka Malhotra in lead roles. However, did you know that Deepika Padukone was also a part of the film?

Yes, you read it right! Sharing anecdotes from their shooting days, Taranveer exclusively told ETimes, “I am a big fan of Deepika Padukone, Sridevi and I love the movie ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’. So Sridevi and ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’ feature in the script somewhere. However, the only one who was not a part of the film was Deepika. I wish somehow I could have made her a part of my film. So I made sure that the first dialogue that Anmol ever spoke on the sets of my film was the word ‘Deepika’. I did that last minute. I just had to!”

When asked about the actors he wishes to work with, in the industry, the filmmaker revealed, “I would love to work with Deepika Padukone. I am in love with her since we worked together in ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’. She is absolutely amazing. I want to work with Ranbir Kapoor too. There are so many good actors like Nimrat Kaur, Rasika Duggal, and others. I will die happy if I get to work with Tabu. There are these people who I feel intimidated when I think about them. I hope I can come up with something good enough for them to even consider.”

Taranveer Singh has worked as an assistant director in films like, ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’, ‘Jhootha Hi Sahi’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.
