The Homi Adajania-directed romantic comedy Cocktail stars Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and debutante Diana Penty, besides Dimple Kapadia and Boman Irani. "For me money does not matter. I want people to enjoy the film. Critics and people enjoy it, in that case if the film earns money then its good," she said. Cocktail is a story of three friends - Gautam (Saif), a flirt; Meera (Diana), a girl with desi values; and Veronica (Deepika) who is a bold and outspoken. The film is about how the friendship becomes confusing and love gets complicated. "The film is a journey of three friends of different personalities and then how love happens is a cocktail," Deepika said.
Deepika was offered both the roles of Meera and Veronica, but she chose to play the latter. "This role was most challenging as I have come out of my comfort zone. I have taken a risk. When Dinesh Vijan (producer) asked me to pick up a role out of the two - Meera or Veronica. I thought I have already done something like Meera in Love Aaj Kal so why to repeat same thing, hence I chose Veronica. To play Meera would be similar and Veronica is new and challenging," she said.
