Piku Banerjee is the daughter of Bhaskor Banerjee who is an independant girl in her thirties trying to find a balance between her over grown 'child', her father and her personal life. Gal Gadot will be the perfect choice as she has the beautiful looks and charm to portray the father loving architect on screen. It would be interesting to see the chemistry of Robert De Niro and Gal Gadot on the big screen.

Irrfan Khan is irreplaceable as Rana in the movie. His witty remarks and stubborn attitude was praised by the audience and critics alike. His role in keeping the father and daughter sane during their road trip in the movie was very essential. It would have been interesting to see the actor revive his role as Rana in Piku if it was ever made in Hollywood.

Irrfan Khan’s team released an official statement on the death of the actor

“I trust, I have surrendered”; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heart felt note he wrote in 2018 opening up about his fight with cancer. And a man of few words and an actor of silent expressions with his deep eyes and  his memorable actions on screen. It’s saddening that this day, we have to bring forward the news of him passing away. Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him. After having been struck by lightning in 2018 with the news of a rare cancer, he took life soon after as it came and he fought the many battles that came with it. Surrounded by his love, his family for whom he most cared about, he left for heaven abode, leaving behind truly a legacy of his own. We all pray and hope that he is at peace. And to resonate and part with his words he had said, “As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it”.
