Deepika Padukone’s Last Success Was Piku. The Film Earned $18 Million Worldwide

Actress and model Deepika Padukone is one of the most popular and highest-paid Indian celebrities. She is beautiful, smart, and has established a career in Bollywood films. Furthermore, Padukone participates in stage shows. In fact, she is a vocal about feminism and depression, and has written columns for an Indian newspaper.

Deepika Padukone’s last success is the film Piky. Today, ten things about it.

Piku is a 2015 Indian comedy-drama film directed by Shoojit Sircar.

Shoojit Sircar is known for making independent films, which are also a success. His 2012 film Vicky Donorwas grand box office success, earning ₹ 13.40 crores in the opening weekend. Good!

Piku was released on 8 May 2015 to wide critical acclaim.

Deepika Padukone portrays the main character. She is Piku Banerjee, a Bengali architect living in New Delhi. She is a “strange, weird, irritating, annoying” girl.

Amitabh Bachchan plays as Padukone’s hypochondriac father, who suffers from chronic constipation and does not want his daughter to get married. He says marriage is for people with low IQ.

Irrfan Khan, Moushumi Chatterjee and Jishu Sengupta portray supporting roles.

Anupam Roy composed the soundtrack for Piku. The official music album was released online on April 21, 2015.

Piku received wide-spread critical acclaim. For example, Rachel Saltz of The New York Times wrote “Piku, directed by Shoojit Sircar from a script by Juhi Chaturvedi, isn’t a typical Hindi movie. It lopes along, following no formula beyond the roughest outlines of a romantic comedy.”

Production companies: MSM Motion Pictures; Saraswati Entertainment Creations Limited; and Rising Sun Films.

Running time 125 minutes
