Aarakshan is the third film in a row for actors Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan. While the entire world is speculating about girlfriend Kareena Kapoor's discomfort over Saif-Deepika closeness, the dimpled actress is least bothered about it. “Well that"s her insecurity I can"t do anything about that," told Deepika when asked about Kareena's insecurity.
Praising Saif to heavens, Deepika accepts that it is a great comfort working with the actor. “He was fantastic in Aarakshan and Cocktail. I can"t think of anyone else who could have done these roles. I am definitely more comfortable working with him now," says Deepika in a conversation with Bangalore Mirror.
Deepika continued that if Kareena has a problem with Saif's co-actresses then it is her problem. However, the leggy lass reveals that they had no issues when they once met. “But we"ve had no problems. In fact, when she came to London, we got along well. We went out one night. She was on sets and watching the shoot even in Hyderabad," she says assuring that there is nothing wrong between her and Saif. Kareena need not worry about it.
Talking about her upcoming film Aarakshan with Saif Ali Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Prateik Babbar, the actress believes that it is a socially-relevant topic today. Though a male-dominated film, Deepika believes in the subject of the film and thinks that it is an issue that needs to be addressed widely.
In Prakash Jha's Aarakshan, Deepika plays the role of a girl who is torn between her love ( played by Saif Ali Khan) and father (played by Amitabh Bachchan) because of the reservation system in our country. Aarakshan is slated for a August 12 release.
