Deepika Padukone To Reveal Her Journey As An Actor On National Geographic; Here Are A Few Excerpts!
Deepika Padukone will unveil her journey of almost 14 years as an actor soon on National Geographic Channel. The promo of her interview shows director Imtiaz Ali and husband Ranveer Singh discussing her growth as an actor.
The actress shared the promo of the interview a day ago. In her message, Deeps wrote, “The difference between a good actor and a great one is simple: It’s just in the perspective. This is @deepikapadukone’s story like it’s never been told before. An all-new season of Mega Icons premieres 20th September, Sunday 7 PM on National Geographic.” Apart from Deepika Padukone, other mega icons who will feature in the series include Ratan Tata, A.R. Rahman, and Kalpana Chawla.
Deepika Padukone Believes Cocktail Helped Her Drop Vulnerability
Deepika and Imtiaz Ali have worked in three major movies-Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail, and Tamasha. While Love Aaj Kal was well-received, Tamasha was a disaster at the box-office. However, it was a Cocktail that gave Deepika recognition as a mainstream actress. While discussing Deepika’s growth Imitiaz Ali says, “An actor’s life is not a linear journey I feel. As she is getting confident what is inside her is coming up. And it’s very rare. At least in the context of Indian cinema, I cannot think of anybody else who has improved so much.”
Ranveer Singh who is not only her husband but has acted with her in more than three movies says, “She was going through some emotional turmoil that perhaps even she was not aware of. And that kept on evolving the performer in her. It started coming out in her performances.”
In one of the excerpts, you can see Deepika Padukone talking about herself. The Om Shanti Om actress says, “My being shy came in the way of me. Just allowing myself and freeing myself in front of the camera. And I think Cocktail allowed me that experience for the first time of truly being vulnerable in front of the camera. And once I felt that joy and that high I think there was no stopping after that.”
