Actress Deepika Padukone considers herself lucky for getting a chance to work with superstar Rajnikanth in Kochadaiyan. She says she hasn’t seen a more humble and passionate person than him.
“I’ve finished shooting with Rajnikanth. Different people praise him in different ways. But I feel one will truly realise what he is only if you meet him. He is extremely humble and passionate about his work. I’ve never seen a person as passionate as him about work,” Deepika Padukone.
“I definitely consider myself lucky to get an opportunity to work with him,” she added. Kochadaiyaan, a Tamil period film, is currently in its post-production stage. It has been directed by Rajnikanth‘s daughter Soundarya.
As of now Deepika Padukone says she has no new southern project on mind at least for the next six months, but she believes “actresses have enough scope to prove themselves down south”.
The actress says her journey in showbiz has been great so far.
“Sometimes I feel it was like a dream come true but I have really worked hard to be where I am today. I am happy with the kind of films that are lined up for me,” said the 26-year-old, who made her Bollywood debut with Om Shanti Om in 2007.
Sridevi compliments Deepika Padukone
Compliments are always welcome but when a star like Sridevi puts her faith in you, it is to be cherished. Deepika Padukone has a reason to cheer as actress Sridevi, who is riding high on success of English Vinglish, feels Deepika Padukone is the current Bollywood star to watch out for.
Sridevi on hearing this said “In my opinion, Deepika Padukone is one of the most promising actresses. I really like her performances and choice of roles. I would like to congratulate her and wish her all the very best.”
Deepika Padukone on hearing the compliment was heard gushing, “It is a huge compliment. She (Sridevi) is someone I have admired. I have grown up watching her films. It is nice to know she likes my work.” And it seems Deepika Padukone who has been Sridevi’s fan since childhood has taken the praise at face-value as she is reportedly doing a thorough research for her forthcoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, Ram Leela.
