Deepika in Kalki 2898 AD

In the climax scene of Kalki 2898 AD, Commander Manas gets in a tussle with Ashwatthama, played by Amitabh Bachchan, and drags SU-M80 away by her hair. Saswata revealed that Deepika was pregnant while filming this scene and that her husband, Ranveer Singh, was also present on set while she was shooting it.

He said in the interview, “Deepika is just ever-smiling. There is a scene in the film where I drag her by the hair. It was part of the last leg of the shoot and was shot in Mumbai because Deepika was pregnant by then. There was a lot of physical tussle in the scene, so I told Ranveer, don’t worry, for more physically challenging scenes, there’s a body double. He was so polite and humble. He smiled and said, I know, Dada.”

Saswata also described Ranveer as someone who ‘can’t stand in one place’, describing that he was wearing an orange ensemble top to bottom when they met.
