Deepika Padukone Opens Up on Playing Mother in Kalki 2898 AD: 'I Thought Why Not Carry Baby Bump...'
Rana Daggubati teased Deepika Padukone about her pregnancy at Kalki 2898 AD pre-release event. Here's how the actress replied.

Deepika Padukone has finally spoken about playing a mother in Nag Ashwin’s highly-anticipated film Kalki 2898 AD, co-starring Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan and Disha Patani. Deepika has been acing the roles of mother in her films lately. After Brahmastra and Jawan, the actress will once again be seen portraying the role of a mother in Kalki 2898 AD.

During Kalki 2898 AD pre-release event in Mumbai, actor Rana Daggubati teased Deepika about her pregnancy, saying that she is still in her character while pointing at her baby bump. Deepika laughed and said, “yeah, I worked on it for three years so I thought why not carry the baby bump for a few more months.”

Interestingly, this is not the first time Deepika has taken on the role of a mother whose character has a major significance in the movie. She previously played Ranbir’s mother in Brahmastra Part One: Shiva which was the first part of the planned trilogy in the Astraverse by Ayan Mukerji. The film also starred Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni. The storyline of Brahmastra focuses on the story of Shiva (Ranbir), a young DJ and an orphan, who discovers that he is born with a special power that makes him immune to fire.

Last year, Deepika Padukone played Shah Rukh Khan’s mother in Jawan. In the film, Shah Rukh appeared in dual roles as Captain Vikram Rathore and his son Azad, while Deepika was seen in a special cameo. Her portrayal of Aishwarya, the wife of Vikram Rathore and mother of Azad, garnered much love and appreciation from the audience. Talking about the movie and the love she received for it, Deepika said, “I have no words to say except thank you so much for all the love. I really just did this for my love for Shah Rukh and everyone knows the relationship that we share. And I didn’t anticipate for this to become so special but I’m just proud and happy to be here and support the team.”

Kalki 2898 AD is set to release in theatres on June 27.
