It's truly rosy at the top, especially when you are Deepika Padukone, Bollywood's current golden girl whose shelves are weighed down with trophies. But 2013's heroine no 1 accepts her success with a humility which is certainly infectious. So has she been able to accommodate all the awards? Deepika admits laughing, "Yes have made space though some are spilling over," with a wink but says she hopes the good fortune of 2013 spills into the New Year as well. Not only filmmakers but brands too are wooing the actress with the Midas touch. Dressed in electric blue pants and a silk black shirt, the actress launched a tablet in the capital and admitted that being constantly on the move, she was attached to her gadgets to stay connected with the world.
So who is on her speed dial, "I don't believe in speed dials, I keep my options open," she says. A music buff, the actress said it was the song Kabira from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani that she constantly heard on loop and the good news for Ranbir-Deepika fans is that they will be seen together in Imitiaz Ali's next movie. Though considered for Sooraj Barjatiya's next with Salman Khan, the actress said she was very keen to work with the Dabangg Khan but could only speak for movies she was in. With rumours rife about her being considered for Shuddhi, the actress denied it saying," I have not been approached by Dharma Productions."
What about the film with Shoojit Sircar with Big B, the actress said though she would love to do a film with Big B, she did not have any confirmation on the project. So would we soon see her do a woman centric subject since she seemed quite capable of carrying the weight of a film on her slim shoulders? Deepika shrugged her shoulders and smiled saying we will talk soon on that. In a league of her own one cannot blame fans and critics for being deeply dippy over the rather driven and committed Ms Padukone.
