Deepika Padukone will be playing Rishi Kapoor's boss in the Hindi remake of The Intern (2021) which is due to release next year. Padukone and Kapoor will be seen in the roles originally played by Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro in the 2015 film, written and directed by Nancy Meyers.

Like Chhapaak (2020), her latest release, Padukone will also be co-producing the project along with Sunir Kheterpal of Azure Entertainment. The director of the recently announced, The Intern, is yet to be named.

In the 2015 Hollywood, De Niro played a 70-year-old retired executive, Ben, who returns to the workforce through a senior citizen intern program. He applies and is hired a company headed by Jules Ostin, played by Anne Hathaway. As they work together, they both learn valuable lessons from each other.

Padukone and Kapoor were both cast in Love Aaj Kal (2009), although they didn't have any scenes together.
