Deepika playing two contrast roles in two films
The actress said that playing two contrastive characters was really challenging for her.
Deepika Padukone did both the films immediately one after another. The plots of both the films are dissimilar to one another. While Ashutosh Gowarika’s “Khalen Hum Jee Jaan Se” is a period thriller and Kunal Kohli’s “Break Ke Baad” is a contemporary love story. In an interview Deepika said, “I did Break Ke Baad and Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey immediately one after the other. So I think it was very challenging for me in terms of my mind space to shift from the character in a romantic modern-day love story to the one in a period film.”
The upcoming romantic number “Break Ke Baad”, directed by Danish Ashlam tells the story of a young couple who breaks and tries to unite later. Deepika is playing opposite Imran Khan in the film. Being a great a great admirer of Sharukh Khan, the actress along with Imran will be seen paying tribute to SRK in their upcoming film. When asked to Deepika if the character Aaliya have any similarity to the character Meera in “Love Aaj Kal”. The actress revealed that both the characters are completely different and opposite to each other.
Gowarika’s, thriller “Khalein Hum Jee Jaan Se”, is based on the book “Do or Die” by Manini Chaterjee. Beside Deepika Padukon, Abhishek Bachchan will feature in the film.
Deepika’s radical gesture made the director signed the actress for the film. After seeing the trailer of the film one may be regretful why Deepika and Abhishek were not cast together before in any film.
Deepika said that though the stories of both the films are different but the two characters have some core qualities in common. Both Aaliya and Kalpana are independent, strong-minded and optimistic girls. The actress said, “They are girls who have their own set of ideals, girls who want to be independent; so in that way I have identified with both characters.”
With films like “Lafange Parindey” and “Housefull”, the year, 2010 have been a great year for Deepika Padukon. Hope with the upcoming two films, Deepika’s coming year is unveiled with success and great hits.
