This year has been fabulously successful for Bajirao Mastani actress Deepika Padukone. The actress has had an impressive collection of films in her kitty which have not only done well in the box office but Dippy as an actress has even managed to impress the critics. But the actress has been quite honest about admitting that she lets her heart decide when it comes to choosing the right script.
She says in an exclusive interview in DNA, “When a director narrates a script, if I connect with it, I do it. If I don’t connect with it, I don’t do it. It’s as simple as that. The only thing I don’t do, is listen to anyone else. Eventually the decision is always mine. And I don’t rely on anyone else’s decisions because everything I do has to be my own. Whether it’s a success or a failure, I believe it has to be my own journey.”
All her firms have been hits, but Dippy prefers to stay away from discussions about numbers. She says, “Honestly, I am not aware of what the numbers should have been like. I don’t get into it and I don’t ever intend to. I don’t get into knowing the budget of a film, how much it was made at, how much it should recover. I have always stayed away from that. So much so, the Friday your film releases and some producer calls or messages me saying, ‘Good collection’, I delete that message. It doesn’t make any sense to me, but the messages which give feedback on my performances I save and cherish.”
