Shahrukh Khan once praised Deepika Padukone in an interview and said, ''I have nothing to do with her (Deepika's) success. It's all hers. You can't take credit away from someone.''
Shahrukh Khan further added, "I think Deepika was always a star. Since she was new, we did the Aankhon Mein Teri song and we showed it to Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan). He said, 'She is a very huge star'. She was a supermodel at that time, so it's not something we (Farah and I) have done.''
"As a friend, I told her that 'Always do a film where you feel comfortable with the people around'. She has made wonderful choices -- whether it's Cocktail or Finding Fanny. She has chosen some highly commercial films too; she has made the right choices,'' said Shahrukh Khan.
Deepika Padukone also has some very kind words for Shahrukh Khan, she said in an interview to a daily, "I remember Shahrukh did an interview before the release of our film and said that I was the soul of the film. I would give him a lot of credit for it.''
