    Default Deepika is rocking

    Suddenly after the success of Cocktail Deepika Padukone is the flavour of the season. Offers from Prakash Jha, Rohit Shetty and apparently Sanjay Leela Bhansali, among others.

    Deepika is excited about working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, provided it happens. “It would he dream come true to work with him. If he’s looking at me for Ram Leela then I’m most certainly looking back at him. The way his heroines’ roles are written is incredible.”

    Deepika’s turn as the endearing vixen Veronica has put her in a different league. “I’d say yes, people’s reactions have been surprising. I got compliments from my own fraternity.My contemporaries surprised me by saying they cried and identified with Veronica. Someone called it a selfless performance. I liked that.I don’t want all these compliments to go to my head. It’s never been my intention to go into a different league. I have nothing to prove to anyone except myself. I’ve to admit people are surprised that I could pull it off. Imtiaz Ali(who wrote Cocktail),director Homi Adjania and producer Dinoo Vijayan had the confidence I could it pull off Veronica. I was offered both the female protagonists’ parts, Veronica and Meera. It was Imtiaz who convinced me to take up the unconventional Veronica. We’ve been friends since Love Aaj Kal. He told me Meera was something similar to what I had done in Love Aaj Kal. Meera is someone I can identify with. But Imtiaz said Veronica would be a bigger challenge. I was ready to take on the risk.So I took on Veronica. Once I accepted I surrendered completely. I am glad it worked. When we were shooting it in London we never expected it would turn out so big.”

    And to think Deepika didn’t think much of the title. “Cocktail was meant to be the tentative title. We did many brainstorming sessions to come up with another title. Finally nothing else worked.”
