Not all about glamour

Dec 11, 2012:

Looking Good

She has done glamorous as well as non-glamorous roles but Deepika Padukone feels sad when people think a glamorous role does not require hard work.

“I think the role is more important. It is a misconception that a glamorous role doesn’t require acting talent. It’s a bit strange, because I think at the end of the day, any kind of film — whether it is glamorous or ‘de-glam’ (non-glamorous) — requires acting. Acting is acting,” she said.

“For example, people think I gave a brilliant performance as Veronica in ‘Cocktail’, but it was also a glamorous role. For me, it is about the role and the film, not glamour,’’ she added. The 26-year-old actress made her Bollywood debut with Om Shanti Om and has since been part of successful films such as Bachna Ae Haseeno, Housefull, Love Aaj Kal
and ‘Cocktail’.

For Deepika, it is important that not only her role is appreciated but the film also does well at the box office. “When you set out to do a film, one hopes that your performance is appreciated and the film also goes on to do well.

Fortunately with me, in ‘Cocktail’, I got both. The film did well and the performance was appreciated. I hope this happens in all my films,” she said.
