Diana Penty is making her Bollywood debut with Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone starer Cocktail. The model-turned actress, who is playing Meera in the movie, says that if the director had asked her to play Deepika Padukone's role of Veronica, she would have said no.
When a website interviewed Diana Penty and asked if she was offered the role of Veronica (played by Deepika), would she be able to pull off the bikini act?
To which Diana replied, "No, I don't think I would be able to do that. I have some reservations about how far I would wish to go. I would not be comfortable doing bikini acts and intimate scenes."
Diana Penty also said, "I am not a trained actor, but it helped a lot that I could completely relate to the character of Meera that I play in Cocktail. I was amazed to see the way Saif and Deepika improvised while we were shooting the scenes. I kept wondering how they managed to do so. I would give a lot of credit for my performance to Homi, because he knew exactly what he wanted from his actors."
Well Diana, we wish you luck for your first Bollywood movie.
