Why Deepika is not Ran­bir Kapoor’s lucky charm

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Ran­bir Kapoor (left) says that he doesn’t wish to take away ac­tor Deepika Padukone’s (inset) credit by call­ing her a lucky charm for him. “I think when you call an ac­tor a lucky charm, you are some­how dis­cred­it­ing his or her achieve­ment. Deepika is a hard worker and what­ever she has achieved till date is be­cause of her tremen­dous ef­fort. I wouldn’t like to call her a lucky charm,” he says about the ac­tor, who has given hits like Happy New Year (2014) and this year’s Piku.

Mean­while, Ran­bir also thinks Deepika is an ef­fort­less ac­tor who makes her choice in films per­fectly. “She gives her heart and soul to ev­ery film and her choice of work is com­mend­able. That’s why all the credit goes to her,” he says.

Talk­ing about their on-screen and off-screen chem­istry, the ac­tor, who is co-star­ring with Deepika in Im­tiaz Ali’s up­com­ing movie, says, “We have been in this in­dus­try for eight years. We both are try­ing our best as ac­tors and hope that the au­di­ence will love our per­for­mance on-screen. Deepika and I are dear friends and I am a big fan of hers. So, we don’t worry about our per­sonal equa­tion or what oth­ers think of it.”

Ran­bir and Deepika have ear­lier worked to­gether in films like Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and Yeh Jawaani Hai Dee­wani (2013).
