Actress Deepika Padukone’s portrayal of character Veronica from the movie ‘Cocktail’ has received high praises from every quarter. Many considered that performance to be her best so far.
But Deepika Padukone said that portraying Veronica was very difficult as she had nothing in common with the character. Deepika went on to add that her character in her upcoming movie ‘Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani’ is very similar to her real persona.
“Actually ‘Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani’ is very similar to me in person like Veronica was not. I think Veronica, as a character, as a person is very different from how I am personally but ‘Yeh Jaawani...’ is very similar to how I am," said Deepika Padukone on Sunday at the Big Star Entertainment Awards.
The movie ‘Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani’, directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar, also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin in lead roles.
For the past few days rumors have been rife about a tussle between Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma. Apparently both the actresses are keen on starring opposite Salman Khan in Hindi remake of Telugu movie ‘Kick’.
But Deepika Padukone rubbished the reports and said there was no bad blood between her and Anushka Sharma.
“There is no truth to this and I always wish her well,” she concluded.
