Director Rohit Shetty is known for creating blockbuster thrillers. The director is bagged up with movies like Sooryanshi and Cirkus. Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi was set to hit the theatre earlier in 2021, but it got delayed due to a pandemic.
In the meantime, Rohit Shetty shot another film titled Cirkus. It is based on William Shakespeare's play "The Comedy of Errors," and it stars Ranveer Singh, Varun Sharma, Pooja Hegde, and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles.
Deepika Padukone was rumored to make a cameo appearance in Cirkus and appear in a song earlier this year.
Now, a source has revealed an intriguing detail about the superstar actress's role in the film. A close source to Bollywood Hungama told,
It is said that Deepika Padukone will reprise her character of Meenamma from Chennai Express (2013). Rohit Shetty also directed it, and it ranks as one of the finest performances of her career. Nowadays, it’s rare to see actresses in a memorable, comic role. Meenamma was one such character that was unanimously loved, and it’ll be interesting to see Deepika in that part in a funny film like Cirkus- Close Source

Ranveer Singh and her wife Deepika Padukone are one of the hottest pairs of Bollywood. To see them together, even if it’s for one scene or song, will enhance the excitement for the film.
