In Talks with : Actress Deepika Padukone talks about the best part of working on her Hollywood debut
Updated on: 02 Jul 2016
The last time we met was more than half a year back. This time, I head to meet Deepika Padukone in Madrid straight from the airport, sleep-deprived for almost a whole day. Trying to spare her the horror (of my red eyes), I hide them under a pair of Aviators. I walk in and she immediately tells me, "Take off your glasses, let me see your face." After a round of casual jokes and some funny one-liners, we sit down for a candid chat — on going global, her Hollywood dream and her unbeatable stint at the top. Excerpts:
You make your Hollywood debut soon...
It kind of fell in place like anything else in my life. I think sometimes, certain things happen when they are supposed to. It's definitely not something that I chased, rather it just fell into my lap. I was made an offer, I read the script, I loved the part and most importantly, I thought it would be a fun experience. It wasn't like, 'Oh, it's a Hollywood film, so I should do something differently'.
With you and Priyanka Chopra getting full-fledged parts in a Hollywood film, don't you think it will open a bigger window for other Indian actors as well?
