Deepika Padukone’s birthday was celebrated by Team Project K, who teased her appearance in the film with a poster. Deepika plays alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Prabhas in the film, which is shot in both Telugu and Hindi.
Deepika Padukone fans were treated to not only a new Pathaan poster, but also one from her other upcoming film, Project K. After Shah Rukh Khan wished Deepika with her Pathaan poster, the makers of Project K also shared a Deepika poster from their film, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Prabhas. Fans compared an orange and brown poster in which only Deepika’s silhouette was visible as she posed against the sun, presumably on top of a mountain hill, to Dune. Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya starred in the 2021 Hollywood film.
Vyjayanthi Movies shared Deepika Padukone’s Project K poster on Instagram, writing, “Here’s wishing our @deepikapadukone a very happy birthday.” On the poster, the text ‘a hope in the dark’ was written. Deepika’s Project K co-star Prabash also wished the actor on Instagram Stories, writing, “Wishing the super gorgeous and talented Deepika Padukone a wonderful birthday and a year full of successes.” Deepika’s Telugu film debut, as well as her first film with Prabhas, is Project K, which was shot simultaneously in Telugu and Hindi.
An Instagram user commented on Deepika’s Project K poster, saying, “Man, this is giving me Dune vibes.” “Am I the only one who sees Zendaya from Dune in this poster?” someone else asked. Several other comments simply stated, “Dune?”
Dune, which was released in 2021, is the first instalment of a two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel of the same name. The film is set in the distant future and follows Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) as his noble House Atreides is thrust into a war for the deadly and inhospitable desert planet Arrakis. According to previous reports, Project K is also set in the future and deals with the aftermath of war.
Project K is an action film directed by Nag Ashwin and produced by Vyajayanthi Movies. It is scheduled to be released in theatres in 2023. Deepika was admitted to the hospital last year during the film’s shoot in Hyderabad due to health issues. However, the film’s producer later denied rumours that Deepika was ill on set and was rushed to the hospital.
