Deepika Padukone, who has been busy promoting her movie xXx: Return of Xander Cage, was in India recently to attend a few endorsement events. Though the dimpled beauty of Bollywood will soon resume her shoot of the much awaited Padmavati, the gorgeous actress has jetsetted to LA to celebrate the success of her first Hollywood movie with her team.
However, before leaving Deepika spoke about her journey in an interview to a daily. When asked what she thought about the comparisons with Priyanka Chopra, who has made it pretty big in the West, Deepika said, “I don’t make anything of it because at a personal level I know her way too well for any sort of comparisons. It feels odd and it feels weird.
Professionally I think we are both doing extremely well. But our worlds are also completely different. What she wants to achieve and is working towards is very different from what I am doing. Although it is in the creative space, her demands and requirements are completely different from mine.
The other thing I find strange is the comparisons to her..I find them bizarre. Even if someone had to compare, I can understand comparison with an Anushka or a Sonam or a Sonakshi but I can’t wrap my head with the comparisons with Priyanka.”
Well, what do you think of that?
Well, there is another happy news for Deepika Padukone fans. When asked what are her upcoming projects, Deepika mentioned that she is reading scripts but has not finalized on any. She said, “I have been reading a lot of scripts both here and internationally. And ..lets see.”
