Deepika Padukone Says Irrfan Khan’s Madaari Is ‘Outstanding’


Mumbai:  Actress Deepika Padukone has lauded her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan’s film Madaari, saying it as a movie which will “stir” people emotionally.

The thriller-drama talks about taking a stand and shouldering responsibility while it also showcases the bond between a father and son. The Bajirao Mastani actress, who co-starred with Irrfan in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku last year, said Madaari will get the viewers thinking.

“It’s outstanding. I think it’s one of those films that’s going to stay with us for a very, very long time and going to get all of us thinking, and it’s going to stir you up emotionally,” Deepika said in a statement.

Irrfan and director Nishikant Kamat teamed up again for Madaari after their critically acclaimed Mumbai Meri Jaan in 2008. The movie, which also stars Jimmy Sheirgill, released on July 22.
