Deepika Padukone’s career is going on the right track. The actress who was widely appreciated for her performance in ‘Cocktail’ was awarded with a Smita Patil award yesterday. She’s working with a director as big as Sanjay Leela Bhansali in ‘Ram Leela’ and Sridevi likes her the most amongst the current crop of actresses. What more can one ask for?
Responding to Sridevi’s compliment, Padukone said, “”It is a huge compliment. She is someone I have admired. I grew up watching all her films. It is nice to know that she admires my work.”
Deepika is thrilled to have received the Smital Patil award so early in her career. “The fact that I have got this award at an early phase of my career makes me feel happy and it makes me feel that I must be doing the right kind of work. “It gives me confidence to do the kind of films I want to do and believe in roles that excite me. I will continue working hard.”
You go girl!
