Deepika Padukone reveals the character that has changed her life
The actress has been a part of many films but, there's one character from her films that has changed her life and perception towards it.
Recently, Deepika featured on Tings London magazine and during an interaction with them, when the magazine asked her about a specific film or character, which affected her as a person or actress, she replied, "There was a stereotype in my own mind of what an actress should be, what she should look like, dress like, etc. Cocktail is a film that changed a lot of things for me because I think that movie came to me at a point in my life when I was coming into my own. I was having a breakthrough with myself and the role I played in that film sort of enhanced that entire experience for me. The character I played (Veronica) was completely different than who I am personally, and I felt like playing her completely opened me up. I felt like a different, more authentic person after that film and I've felt this way ever since."
Deepika was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat". Post that she was about to start shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's untitled next with Irrfan Khan which is said to be a gangster based film. But, due to Irrfan's ill-health, the film has been put on a hold for now.
However, the fans have been eagerly waiting to see the actress once again on full screen.
The actor also spoke about her upcoming projects. The dimpled beauty stated, "There's a film that I will begin working on soon, it doesn't have a title yet but it's based on a true story from one of the mafia queens. It's actually a chapter from a book called "The Mafia Queens of Mumbai" there is no title yet but there are references of a woman who I would say was extremely brave in doing what she did, and I just thought it was a very very expiring story and a story that needed to be shared."
