‘I never spoke to Shah Rukh about film clash’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH

Deepika Padukone re­futes ru­mours that sug­gested that she had re­quested fel­low ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan to push the re­lease date of his film to avoid a clash with hers. Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani, star­ring Deepika, Ran­veer Singh and Priyanka Cho­pra, is likely to clash with SRK’s next in De­cem­ber. How­ever, Deepika, who was in Delhi for the launch of a song from her film, clar­i­fied: “I have a very per­sonal equa­tion with Shah Rukh and I’d never do some­thing like that. I was so busy work­ing on my film that I had no time to get in­volved in this. As an ac­tor, it’s im­por­tant to do your part with hon­esty and con­vic­tion and leave the rest to pro­fes­sion­als like pro­duc­ers and di­rec­tors.”

Al­though in her pe­riod film, the 29-year-old will be seen in grand en­sem­bles, Deepika likes to dress sim­ple in real life. “I don’t put an ef­fort in dress­ing up on a daily ba­sis. I like to feel com­fort­able, so I mostly wear loose clothes or jeans and T-shirts. Of late, I’ve been wear­ing gym-wear a lot,” says Deepika, who while in Delhi, walked the ramp for de­signer Anju Modi at a fash­ion event on Satur­day, show­cas­ing an out­fit that por­trays her look in Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani.

The ac­tor calls her­self for­tu­nate to be in an industry where oth­ers take care of her style. “We’re con­stantly dress­ing up for a film or the red car­pet, so we’re styled to per­fec­tion all the time,” she says.
