That Deepika Padukone is one of the most talented and sought-after actresses of Bollywood, is no news. But why then has she not signed a single film after Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat, that crossed the Rs 500-crore mark worldwide?  She was supposed to start shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's gangster drama, 'Sapna Didi' this year, but unfortunately the film had to be postponed owing to her co-star Irrfan Khan's health condition.
