The actress reveals how things have changed since her debut till date, as she is once again working with Farah and SRK
Deepika is once again working with the same set of people with whom she began her career with, (‘Om Shanti Om’) i.e., Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Indeed life has come a full circle for this actress. Although this time the change is that her director doesn’t really have much to teach her and is really proud of her, as Deepika confesses, “I can see that Farah is really kind to let me be. In the Dubai schedule she said, ‘Baby, in the first film I really had to teach you everything. I had to tell you how to react, how to do this, how to do that. But now I don’t have to say anything and you just manage on your own. I am really proud of you.’ So that’s really a nice feeling.”
‘Happy New Year’ is a multi starrer film and Deepika reveals that she is enjoying herself. “It’s a lot of fun. I am surrounded by mad people – Farah, Shah Rukh, Abhishek, Boman, Sonu Smooth as we call him and Vivaan. They really pamper me because Vivaan and I are the youngest in the team. Farah and Shah Rukh are all protective like proud parents,” quips Deepika.
‘Happy New Year’ starring Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah, Sonu Sood and Jackie Shroff releases next year on October 23.
