Previously, Deepika Padukone made her big Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om. Now she has completed her 10 years in Bollywood. Since then, there has been no looking back for the actress who has given remarkable performances in flicks like Cocktail, Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram Leela, Piku, Bajirao Mastani, to name a few.
In an interview with a tabloid, when Deepika was questioned about her 10-year Bollywood journey so far, the actress disclosed, “I feel like a little child in a candy shop and that hasn’t changed [in the last decade]. In fact, today, I feel alive as an actor like never before. In the last 10 years, I have learnt so much just by working with people that I have teamed up with. Just being on a film set, making good or bad choices, and the criticism, as well as praise that have come my way for the performances, all of that, has made me the person that I am today.”
Deepika further added, “Yes, I feel Padmavati is my debut film (laughs) and the fact is that’s what I feel like in spirit. I don’t feel the years at all. I feel like a little child, who has just started off. I have so much more to do, give and learn as well. So, I am like, ‘I want to be on one more film set so that I can make more mistakes and correct things too. So, honestly, there is still a lot to do.”
Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. Padmavati is scheduled to release on December 1, 2017.
