  • It won’t be an overstatement to say that Piku is both Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone’s most memorable film. Irrfan played the character of Rana Chaudhary, an impatient yet resourceful businessman, who brings respite and stability to the protagonist’s life. His role isn’t as elaborate as Deepika’s, but you start missing Irrfan Khan on the screen as soon as he signs off from the film. Needless to say, Irrfan and Amitabh Bachchan's chemistry makes 'Piku' a must watch.
