‘I’ m selfish as an actor’
Actor Deepika Padukone says when it comes to acting, she is selfish.
“We all work so hard on every movie and want each one to have its own space to do it... sort of properly. But I look at the overall picture, of course I am selfish as an actor,” Deepika said at the unveiling of the video of Wat wat wat song from her forthcoming film Tamasha.
Deepika is elated that this year has been one of the best. “While Piku has already released, now we have Tamasha and then Bajirao Mastani. So, as an actor I am very happy,” said the 29-year-old.
Talking about Tamasha, she said: “Tamasha is something that talks about breaking stereotype and expressing things differently. And I think we were expressing the character’s mood differently, how one could normally express that.”
On the launch of Tamasha’s new track, Wat Wat Wat and the film’s leads could not be together. While Deepika launched the song alone, ex-boyfriend Ranbir weighed in through a video call from London where he is shooting for Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma. The actor told Deepika as a bemused audience watched, “Tum pehle bhi itni khoobsurat thi... ya waqt ne kiya koi haseen sitam.” Before you read too much into it, let us remind you that this is the famous dialogue from the pair’s hit, Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani.
