Deepika Padukone who will next be seen in and as Piku, directed by Shoojit Sircar…
Mumbai, Oct 17 – Deepika Padukone has certainly come a long way and proved her mettle with variety in her performances in the last few years. The actress admits that she values appreciation for her work more than anyth ing else.
Appreciation is important. What do we work for? If I work hard for my film and if my work is not appreciated, then what is the point, Deepika said in a group interview.
In fact, money is the least important thing and success also is not so important. The love and appreciation that we get, is important and valuable, she added.
The actress came with a bang in the Bollywood boulevard with a double role in Om Shanti Om, but post that, she was panned by critics for being wooden-faced.
But tables turned when she sailed through her roles in films like Cocktail, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela.
Even critics marvelled at her improved skills, but the model-turned-actress says being a heroine is not easy.
It looks very glamorous and looks like a great life, but there is a lot of hardwork behind it, said badminton legend Prakash Padukone’s daughter, who had an easy entry in tinsel town, but had to go through the grind to find a firm foothold in the film industry.
Deepika feels proud to have a comfortable roof on her head — something which she couldn’t afford earlier.
At the end of the day, we have to lead a decent lifestyle. But all I am trying to say is that the most important thing is appreciation, she added.
