Deepika Padukone: You need to make sacrifices for Numero Uno position

By Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

The verdict is going to be out soon. In yet another author backed role, Deepika Padukone would be seen as 'Leela' in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's RAM-LEELA. While the promos are indicating yet another terrific performance from Deepika in the offing, the film's run would also consolidate the leading lady's positioning as the Numero Uno female superstar.

"Whatever position that I am in today or the kind of love and appreciation that I am getting, it has not happened overnight. It is not just luck either," says Deepika without mincing any words, "There is a bloody lot of hard work that has gone into it. At the end of the day, you need to make commitments and then make some more sacrifices."

In the times when sequels and remakes are the in thing, isn't Deepika flattered that most of her biggies, except RACE 2, have been first time affairs?

"That's right. I believed in COCKTAIL, YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI, CHENNAI EXPRESS and was excited about what Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) had to say about RAM-LEELA. It was good enough for me to go out there and do some good work. With KOCHADAIIYAAN as another original subject, I am definitely enjoying my times," says Deepika.

Hopefully audience would say the same as well once Deepika's RAM-LEELA, which is produced by Kishore Lulla and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, would release all over on 15th November 2013.
