Dusky beauty Deepika Padukone is happy that she got to relive the classic Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) moment of chasing a train with superstar Shah Rukh Khan in her forthcoming release Chennai Express.
Deepika will be seen catching a train a la Kajol in the 1995 blockbuster.
‘I got to live the DDLJ moment with Shah Rukh,’ the actress told reporters at the launch of Vogue Eyewear’s first ever Indian communication campaign Tuesday.
If SRK’s screen name in DDLJ was Raj, he was called Rahul in another blockbuster Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
‘The fact that while growing up it is every girl’s dream to romance Rahul and Raj on-screen, I got an opportunity to do that as well in the film,’ said the 27-year-old, the brand ambassador of Vogue Eyewear.
Deepika wishes to gift optical frames to Shah Rukh with whom she made her Bollywood debut in 2007 with Om Shanti Om.
‘I would give him optical frames because I know he wears specs. He wears reading glasses. I will pick something for him...That’s something I can gift him,’ she said.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, action-comedy Chennai Express is slated for a 8 August release. ians
