Deepika Admits Goofing Up Big B's Invitation to Piku Bash
The actress explains the faux pas as an oversight....
Deepika Padukone is on a roll after her success with Piku. An unconventional film, the plot celebrates the various joys and trials of a father-daughter relationship between Deepika and her screen father Amitabh Bachchan. Hailed as a career-best performance for her and an equally impresssive display of histrionics by Big B, the industry was full of praise and applaud for the two.
However, it was a tad shocking that legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan was noticeably absent from the Piku success bash with Deepika threw for her indusrty colleagues. More so, beacuse the actor was an integral part of the film and the two shared a wonderful chemistry onscreen.
A recent article in dnaindia.com reported that Deepika is now gearing to celebrate her dad Prakash Padukone's birthday, who will be turing 60 soon. The actress is busy making plans and when asked about the Piku bash invitation debacle she says, "It was a major major technical error on my part and by the time it came to my notice it was too late and I'll never forgive myself for it."
She adds, "I am so embarrassed that I have not even had the courage to call him after that. I did eventually text him, couple of days ago but I have still not had the courage to pick up the phone and even explain myself to him. But I will. It was a major technical thing and I woud never forgive myself for it."
The film's success party saw the entire Bollywood fraternity in attendance and no one notices anything amiss until Senior Bachchan admitted in an interview that he was not invited.
All we can say is...awkward!
