Being an actor means portraying different characters and myriad shades of emotions, however playing a well know figure from history is another ball game in itself. Doing just that is Deepika Padukone who plays the role of Kalpana Dutta in Ashutosh Gowariker's next Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey which is based on a true event. The film which is a period thriller is based on the book 'Do and Die' written by Manini Chatterjee.

Speaking about Kalpana Dutta director Ashutosh Gowariker says, "Kalpana Dutta was just 17 when the Chittagong Uprising took place. She was a voracious reader and was inspired by stories of the youngest revolutionaries. Along with her friend Pritilata Wadadar, she played different roles within the revolutionary movement, including that of a courier - transporting acid from Calcutta to Chittagong. After her arrest, the court took into consideration her age and sex and she was given transportation of life. After she got released in May 1939 she got married to Shri P. C. Joshi (General Secretary of the Communist Party of India). The author Manini Chatterji is her daughter-in-law.

He further adds, "Deepika has brought an energy and feistiness to the character of Kalpana Datta which is very endearing. I am enamoured by her performance."

Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey which is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker will be his first epic period thriller and is based on the book 'Do And Die' by Manini Chatterjee which centres on the Chittagong Uprising of the 1930s. The film has been shot mostly in Goa along with portions in Mumbai.
