Piku, releasing on May 8th, is a story about a father-daughter relationship (played by Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone) but also includes a parallel storyline tracking Piku (played by Deepika) and  Irrfan Khan's character. The comedy drama explores the 'motion' related eccentricities of a senile father. The potty-drama has catchy one-liners such as "Aadmi ka emotion uske motion se juda hota hai" and "Aap har baat ko pet ke saath kaise jod dete hain" among others.

But the pairing has received overwhelming thumbs up from Bollywood film lovers. Their chemistry onscreen translates to great camaraderie off screen too. At the launch event of the trailer, Deepika looked beautiful in an olive green skirt paired with casual stripy top. Co-actor Irrfan Khan was also dressed in a shirt sporting similar combination.

A source close to the duo said, “It was just a mere coincidence and was not planned.”

Though Deepika is Irrfan’s love interest in the film, he is not your typical lover boy. The trailer shows the couple to be matured lovers. Despite daughter-father being centre to Piku's plot, Irrfan Khan brings his character to life with promising performance in the trailer. The fans have appreciated Deepika's performance in the trailer too.
