Deepika who has been cast opposite Abhishekh Bachchan for the first time, will be seen wearing traditional Bengali sarees for this period thriller.
Deepika plays a Bengali revolutionary who braves all odds and fights for her country.
It is based on the book Do and Die by Manini Chatterjee, which is about the Chittagong Uprising of 1930 and is scheduled for release in December this year.
Unlike her dazzling self, in exquisite gowns and glitzy bikinis, this look is to give her a completely different avatar. As for the acceptance by the audience, only time will tell!
