Deepika eyes movie with Salman

Actress Deepika Padukone says she is keen to work with superstar Salman Khan but is waiting for something special to bring them together on screen. Deepika had got a debut offer with Salman, which happened way before she was chosen by Farah Khan for Om Shanti Om. However, she had to decline it then as she felt she was not ready to face the camera.

“Salman offered me my first film when I was too young and I was not ready to be in front of the camera. I will always be grateful to him. Just the fact that he offered me a film was a great thing. It is taking a long time for us to come together on screen, so I think there is something special waiting for us,” Deepika says. The actress, who will be seen alongside southern superstar Rajnikanth for the first time in Kochadaiyaan, says she admires his child-like enthusiasm.

“I worked for three days with him. What I took back from him is his simplicity, humility and child-like attitude on sets. Despite achieving so much success he is so excited, enthusiastic and energetic even today. This is something that is inspiring to see,” she says .
A lot of appreciation is coming Deepika’s way with the success of films like ‘Chennai Express’, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and‘Race 2’ but the actress says she feels awkward when people compliment her.

 “I feel lucky enough to play special characters with good actors and directors. I feel awkward when people compliment me. I don’t take compliments well, I don’t reciprocate well,” the actress says.

Deepika is happy to be a part of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s romantic drama Ram Leela opposite Ranveer Singh. “There are various ways of telling a love story, like he (Sanjay) did with Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas, and now he has come with a new love story with a new background and palette. Gujarat is not explored much in films. It is a new and different side of Gujarat,” she says.

 “The exciting part is that the film is new looking, fresh and different. It is a risk that we both (Ranveer and I) have taken. It is a new take on a love story. We are nervous but excited,” Deepika adds.
