Deepika Padukone has always been head over heels for Shah Rukh Khan. The King Khan is always credited for giving Deepika the needed launch in the industry. Deepika as we all know started her career in the tinsel town with SRK starrer ‘Om Shanti Om’.
However, the times have changed and Deepika is regarded as one of the top actresses of the industry. The year 2015 is an important one for both Deepika and Shah Rukh. For the first time, Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan will battle it out on the box office with their respective films ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Dilwale’.
Both much-awaited films are releasing on the same date i.e. December 18th, 2015. With the two big movies releasing on the same date, comparison between them is inevitable. The war will surely be an entertaining one, as it will be fought between Deepika and SRK who are known for their best friendship.
Commenting on the same, Deepika confessed, “SRK is fond of me like I am of him. There is a very pure equation we share. We miss each other. I miss being in his films and being around him on sets. He has always been generous to me. When Om Shanti Om and Chennai Express did well, he in more ways than one gave me the credit for it.”
The highly talented actress is not in competing mode with SRK and rather opined, “He is very generous when he is says that I will be lucky for him. Dilwale is going to be a massive hit. It has got amazing people and if the film does well, it wouldn’t be because of my luck but all due to their efforts and hard work.”
Deepika Padukone is all geared up to show her mesmerizing acting skills with the film ‘Bajirao Mastani’. The film is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and also stars Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles.
