MUMBAI: A day before the Filmfare Awards took place in Mumbai, Deepika Padukone was confidently rehearsing her steps for her act with choreographer Ganesh Hedge. The leggy beauty had a well synchronized act from her last two hits, Love Aaj Kal and Karthik Calling Karthik.
"Oh, I am glad, Karthik Calling Karthik is being appreciated by the audiences," exclaimed Padukone. "It is good to start the new year on a high especially after the success of Love Aaj Kal last year. I know my fans expect me to do a certain type of cinema and I knew it was a risk doing this film. But I liked the script and I was confident the script would translate well into a film."
Karthik Calling Karthik, essentially a multiplex film has won good reviews from the critics, but audiences are still deciding whether they have appreciated the film as theatres are not running to packed houses. But Padukone is unperturbed. The actress is already looking at greener pastures with two good films in her kitty.
Said Padukone, "I have started work on Pradeep Sarkar’s film and a month later I will start my next with the Yash Raj Films banner. One month of that schedule and then I am back to doing Pradeep Sir’s film. I will be upto my ears working for the next four months and only then will I get a break."
But before that comes her comedy with Sajid Khan’s Housefull in April. "Oh that will be a riot act. Just wait and watch…."
