However Deepika suggested that rather than models, her fans should get this opportunity.
The team then chose 10 female fans of Deepika Padukone from across the country to walk the ramp. It was a random pick and her fans from different cities will be all flown in. Deepika would spend time, interact and groom them.
Deepika has worked around her schedule; she is shooting at night to ensure she can personally groom these girls.
Deepika is keen for them to taste of what it's like being a professional model. They will undergo rehearsals; make up, grooming, trials and everything else before they hit the ramp.
Since the ace actress herself believed in this idea, she took full responsibility of grooming the girls who would be walking the ramp for the very first time.
Says Deepika "I thought it would be interesting to pick girls who identify with the way I dress. We haven't selected them on the basis of their looks, height or whether they are experienced models. It was a random pick from the entries we had; I will try to make it as memorable and special for them. I will spend time with them, chat and groom them so that they go back with great memories."She further adds. "I have always been grateful to my fans and, in whatever little way, I have always tried to give back."
