“I am very excited. But I want to confess that I am very nervous. Most importantly I feel proud to be a part of a film where I get to flaunt my ethnicity,” Deepika said. “The reason they are roping me is because of my background. I really hope that I do well in the movie and people go and watch it,” said the actress, who was in the capital for the launch of the new collection from luxury watch-making company.
Back home Deepika has been making the right noises and had a tremendous year in 2015 with the success of her films “Piku”, “Tamasha” and “Bajirao Mastani”. The actress says it has been her constant effort to keep improving every year and she is happy to see her efforts pay off two years in a row. “I work to compete with myself and keep setting the benchmark for myself, to keep bettering. After a successful 2014, I hoped I can do better and then it happened in 2015. It is my constant desire to keep improving,” she said.
