Deepika Padukone has been acing the roles of mother in her films lately. After Brahmastra and Jawan, the actress will once again be seen playing a mother in Kalki 2898 AD.

The trailer of Kalki 2898 AD has generated a huge buzz on the internet, thanks to the film’s incredible cast that boasts of Amitabh Bachchan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone and Kamal Haasan. Apart from its innovative plot line and grand scale, what grabbed everyone’s attention was mom-to-be Deepika sporting a baby bump in the movie (Note: Deepika is expecting her first baby with actor-husband Ranveer Singh). According to various theories surrounding the film’s plot, Deepika’s unborn child will be an avatar of Kalki, and hence her character will play a significant role in the story.

Interestingly, this is not the first time Deepika has taken on the role of a mother whose character has a major significance in the movie. Fans pointed out that Deepika has been acing the roles of mother in Bollywood lately. She previously played Ranbir’s mother in Brahmastra Part One: Shiva which was the first part of the planned trilogy in the Astraverse by Ayan Mukerji. The film also starred Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni. The storyline of Brahmastra focuses on the story of Shiva (Ranbir), a young DJ and an orphan, who discovers that he is born with a special power that makes him immune to fire.

Last year, Deepika Padukone played Shah Rukh Khan’s mother in Jawan. In the film, Shah Rukh appeared in dual roles as Captain Vikram Rathore and his son Azad, while Deepika was seen in a special cameo. Her portrayal of Aishwarya, the wife of Vikram Rathore and mother of Azad, garnered much love and appreciation from the audience. Talking about the movie and the love she received for it, Deepika said, “I have no words to say except thank you so much for all the love. I really just did this for my love for Shah Rukh and everyone knows the relationship that we share. And I didn’t anticipate for this to become so special but I’m just proud and happy to be here and support the team.”

So, fans went berserk when they spotted Deepika with a pregnant belly in Kalki 2898 AD. Sharing a post about the same, one user wrote on Reddit, “Deepika Padukone making her own genre of being the important mother of an important child.” The post went viral in no time, with netizens praising Deepika’s exceptional acting skills.

One user said, “Mother is mothering!” Another one wrote, “She was manifesting her own baby.” “And now going to be a mother irl (in real life). That’s method acting,” read a third comment.

Talking about coming on board Kalki 2898 AD, Deepika Padukone earlier told Film Companion, “I have to say I’m nervous because when the camera rolls it will feel like a familiar territory but I have not worked with Prabhas before. I have not worked with Nag Ashwin before. I’ll also have to do this in a different language apart from doing it in Hindi so there’s all of these things, plus it’s such a VFX heavy film. Even just the character and the world, all of it is so new for me. But I’m also excited.”
