Deepika chooses com­fort over style

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Deepika Padukone (left) doesn't like to fol­low fash­ion trends and says that in clothes she chooses com­fort over “every­thing else”.

“Yes, there are girls who sub­scribe to fash­ion mag­a­zines and like to fol­low trends and like to keep with it. But I don’t be­long to that group. I be­long to a group of girls who choose to be com­fort­able over every­thing else,” the Piku (2015) ac­tor said.

Asked about fash­ion musthaves, she said: “Some­thing in black was the safest bet as it could come in handy in any kind of oc­ca­sion like a for­mal din­ner.”

She also re­it­er­ated her need of be­ing com­fort­able over every­thing else and not ac­ces­soris­ing too much.

The ac­tor, who made her Bol­ly­wood de­but with Om Shanti Om (2007) along­side ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan, re­cently launched her own ap­parel line.

The ac­tor is cur­rently not look­ing at any other scripts and is fo­cus­ing all her en­ergy on her ex­ist­ing projects. “I think a per­son can be cre­ative in many ways and my fash­ion line is just me ex­plor­ing my other side of cre­ativ­ity,” Padukone said.

Talk­ing about the rea­son be­hind en­ter­ing into the world of fash­ion, the ac­tor said, “The as­pect be­hind the la­bel is to show peo­ple what my own per­sonal style would be like as I have al­ways been styled for a film or a red car­pet.”

The ac­tor, who will be seen wear­ing heavy ar­mour in her up­com­ing film Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani, added, “In the fu­ture if we get into In­dian wear, we might con­sider try­ing out clothes from the movie.”
