Deepika Padukone quotes
# “I’ve grown up watching Shah Rukh Khan and never really imagined that one day I will get to play the lead opposite him”
# “It was a wonderful experience working with Shah Rukh and Farah. I have learnt a lot from both of them. Shah Rukh is a great human being”
# “I had done quite a bit of modeling and wanted to give acting a try. That’s when Farah approached me and I accepted. Today, I’m so glad that I waited since I could not have had a better debut.Farah and SRK have taken superb care of me. Farah treats me like her child.”
# “I never wanted to be a Bollywood heroine. The thought never crossed my mind. As a child, I never stuck poses in front of the mirror.”
# “I will be choosy and work in good films only. I am not interested in exposing even if I am offered good money.”
# “I played state level badminton till the 10th standard. Then I had to study for my ICSE board exams, so I stopped playing for three months and modelling happened after that.”
# “If I get into movies it would definitely be a Hindi film but I’d probably use a Kannada or a Tamil film as a stepping stone. Right now I am aiming to be a supermodel.” [Before her debut]
