Om Shanti Om girl Deepika Padukone recently walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in saree, which got her praises from all quarters. But how comes she carried it off like a pro when she was known for western outfits? Maybe her role in Ashutosh Gowariker"s Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey helped her. The first look of the film tells it all.
Well, you will see Deepika in a different avatar in Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, where she acts with Abhishek Bachchan. She wears a traditional Bengali saree in the film. Initially, she found hard to shot action sequences in saree but soon got used to it.
Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is a period thriller based on the book Do and Die by Manini Chatterjee, which is about the Chittagong Uprising of 1930. In the film, Deepika plays a Bengali revolutionary who braved all odds and fights for her country. It is scheduled for release on December 3, 2010.
