In an interview with DNA, the actress has been quoted as saying that while she would love to do production work, she doesn’t want to be a producer. She further clarifies her stand by saying that if she has a team that will do it for her, then it would be fine with her as she doesn’t think that she has the bandwidth or capacity to take on the role of a producer. She reveals that she has no sense of math or money and that if someone has a great script and needs to add her name to greenlight a project, she would be happy to do it. She asserts that she has no business sense.

Deepika Padukone says she does not have the capacity to take on the role of a producer

Deepika Padukone is on a high these days. The actress is busy shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani.

The report quoted a source saying that Dippy’s team has received calls from leading Bengali filmmakers who are keen to sign her for their projects.

Deepika Padukone is one of the most promising actresses of Bollywood. Her high spirit and sporty attitude charms everyone in the industry.

Dippy was quoted saying that she understands the importance of family and it completes her as a person. The Piku actress further added that she wants lots of children as she loves them. She also feels that spending time with kids is like a therapy. That is the reason she spends a lot of time with Shah Rukh Khan’s son AbRam and Homi Adajania’s kids, stated the actress. Deepika considers her fondness for kids as being selfish, because in the name of spending time with kids, she is actually selfishly using them for her therapy, concluded the report.

Piku, which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan, has been applauded by critics as well as the audience. It has also been in news for the bond that Big B and Deepika shared during its filming. But the surprising part is that Dippy has seen only a few films featuring Amitabh Bachchan and that too, some recent ones that came in 2000 and later. In an interview with ABP News, when the actress was asked about the first Big B film she saw, she went silent for a few moments. Before she could recall anything, Big B intervened saying that the dimpled actress hadn’t seen any of his films. After a while, Deepika confessed that she hadn’t seen any of Amitabh’s old films, but some new ones like Mohabbatein and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.

After beginning her Bollywood career with a rather desi role, Deepika Padukone has taken it upon herself to represent every state of the country. The actress seems to be acing her desi girl act. After a bevy of roles that portrayed her as the city chick in films like Cocktail, Race 2 and Desi Boyz, DP has been playing roles that are rooted in the country.

Chennai Express: Deepika Padukone decided to go all out to imbibe the South Indian accent for Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express. Deepika’s character in the film is that of a South Indian girl who has been brought up in a remote village and hence the accent was a necessary part of preparing for the role. Needless to say, Deepika perfected her accent and it was difficult to ascertain if Deepika indeed spoke with a heavy South Indian accent or faking it. In addition to acquiring the accent, Deepika’s look was also kept authentic. Plain sarees with broad borders and blouses in contrasting colours, characterised her look in the film. Her jewelery was kept basic, with gold, temple jewelery and colourful bangles.

Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram-Leela: After alighting from the Chennai Express, Deepika had a whirlwind romance of sorts with her Gujarati Romeo aka Ranveer Singh in Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram-Leela. Sashaying in voluminous ghagras and itsy-bitsy cholis, DP was at her sensual best in the film. While her chemistry with Ranveer Singh was electric, Deepika’s wide-eyed innocent act garnered her a lot of attention. While the accent was not as evident here, she did pick up cues from Gujaratis and worked on her ‘s’ and ‘t’ to make her dialogue sound more authentic and in sync with the setting of the film.

Finding Fanny: Set in Goa, Finding Fanny presented Deepika with the opportunity to return to her roots. Deepika played a Goan in the film and had to mouth some Konkani – the language of the locals. This came easy for the actress who is well-versed with the language. She was reportedly delighted with the chance to speak a language she hardly used. Dressed in sundresses with her hair let loose, Deepika painted a pretty picture as the bohemian chick.

Happy New Year: For her third film with Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika decided to acquire a Maharashtrian accent. While the film didn’t require her to put on a typical Marathi accent, she worked on making her language more pedestrian, a far cry from the refined manner in which she speaks. She also dressed in garish costumes before her character underwent a makeover. The film required her to play a bumbling girl and the otherwise confident actress essayed it with perfection.

Piku: With her well-defined features, Deepika surely pulls off the Bengali girl look from what is evident in the pictures clicked on the sets of the film. What’s even more exciting is the fact that the actress has learnt basic Bengali to get her act correct in Piku where she shares screen space with Amitabh Bachchan. While shooting the film in Kolkata, Deepika also apparently fell in love with the City of Joy and its old-world charm. DP will apparently be seen wearing a lot of cotton kurtis in the film. The rest of her look seems to be simple with kohled eyes and a bindi to accentuate her features.
