While most top-rated actresses struggle to hold their own in the Indian Film industry after they get married, we have one actress who’s not worried about this. Yes, you read it right.
Deepika Padukone, who is at the top of her game and career, says she can very easily quit acting, if she gets married.The dimpled actress says, “I can quit acting and lead a domesticated, happy family life away from the limelight. For me, nothing is more important than the relevance of family in our lives. That feeling of completeness.”
Deepika further tells about how she wants ‘so many children’. She says, “I don’t know when that’s going to happen, but I hope that when it does, I do it gracefully. That’s the only advice my parents have given me and I’d want to stick to that and say that I don’t know when it will happen. Or I don’t think I have that vision or plan or whatever, but when it happens, it happens gracefully. I know the importance of family. I mean it really completes me as a person. I want lots of children, I want so many children.”
Thats sounds too homely for an actress who has played a wild character like Veronica in Homi Adajania’s ‘Cocktail’. But then, the movie ‘Cocktail’ has been a milestone in her career, in so many ways.Deepika Padukone, when asked about her giving eight hits in a row, quips that she is not yet comfortable with success.
“It’s definitely a great feeling but it’s not satisfying to a level where I am now comfortable. Someone recently asked me “This is your eight or ninth consecutive hit back-to-back. Are you getting comfortable with success?” No, I am not getting comfortable with success because with every film that I do, I want to be better than my own self from my previous film and I want my next film to do better than my last film,” she adds.
Deepika’s selection of movies is being hailed as she has gone on to do a variety of roles, ranging from Veronica in ‘Cocktail’ to Leela in ‘RamLeela’ and ‘Piku’. Reports also say that the actress hasn’t signed any new film apart from Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Tamasha’ and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
The talented actress maintains that the most difficult part of playing ‘Piku’ was that there were no crutches for the character. She says, “In ‘Chennai Express’, as an actor, I had an accent to fall back on. In ‘RamLeela’, there is a different kind of language, here there was nothing. There are a lot of scenes where we did not stick to dialogue on paper; certain lines, certain words, just happened organically because the film itself was so real.”
“To give that kind of performance, the only direction I got from Shoojit (Sircar), was: just be. So I just had to be and keep it as real as possible because the film doesn’t allow for anything else. You know if one sur was off, or anything went a bit over, it would have been easy to catch that because it’s such a simple film, so simplistically shot. For me, the toughest challenge was to keep every bit as real and seem less as possible,” Deepika signs off.
