Deepika Padukone has successfully completed more than 15 years in the entertainment industry. Be it her role in Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani, Tamasha, Padmaavat or any other movie, the actress has not failed to impress everyone with her excellent performance. But do you know which performance of hers is closest to Deepika’s heart? During a recent media interaction, the 36-year-old actress spoke about it and revealed that her lead role in Shoojit Sarkar’s Piku holds a special place in her heart.
“There was something special about the energy in that movie. I think me and my sister (Anisha) are the age we are going to mature. There is one thing about Piku that is very special. And it’s a film that keeps getting talked about. At the stage of life I am at now, it seems to be my favorite (character),” quoted Hindustan Times.
The Gehrian actress further noted that her collaboration with Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan was also ‘beautiful’ as there was no comparison between the co-stars. “I knew I’d be with these two incredible people (actors Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan), but when you’re not competing with your co-stars and you’re really invested in telling it, it’s a great collaboration. Good story and that’s where we are. I don’t think Irrfan was trying to be one on Mr Bachchan or he was trying to be one on anyone. It was a pretty collaborative process and we were invested in giving our best,” she added.
Deepika played Piku Banerjee, an ambitious woman who takes care of her father played by Amitabh Bachchan in the 2015 film. The film also starred late actor Irrfan Khan. This movie made us laugh and get emotional at the same time.
On the work front, Deepika has some interesting projects in her kitty. Currently she is busy with Project K with Prabhas. She has completed the shooting schedule of Siddharth Anand’s Pathan opposite Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham. She also has Fighter with Hrithik Roshan and the Hindi remake of The Intern with Amitabh Bachchan.
