The chairperson of the Central Board for Film Certification Sharmila Tagore will play the role of a single mother to Deepika Padukone in the Imran-Deepika starrer Break Ke Baad, reports Mumbai Mirror.
Sharmila is known to be choosy with signing films but a lesser-known fact is that she makes exceptions for people she is fond of. And it turns out, Deepika Padukone is one of them, says the report..
Deepika and Sharmila share a very special mother-daughter relationship in the film.
And acting must come naturally to both since both Deepika and Sharmila are very fond of each other. The two first met on the sets of Love Aaj Kal, which Saif Ali Khan produced.
Deepika bonded with Sharmila and apparently when the mother's role was being finalised for Break Ke Baad, Deepika suggested Sharmila's name.
Deepika said, “I was very excited to know that Sharmilaji will be playing my mother in the film. I respect her immensely, and feel she is one of the finest actors of India. I am humbled that I got a chance to share screen space with such a great actor.”
