Actress Deepika Padukone says filmmaker Farah Khan and actor Shah Rukh Khan are protective about her like parents. Deepika is working with Shahrukh Khan for the third time. He and Farah Khan were the ones who introduced the diva to Bollywood with Om Shanti Om. Now the actress is enjoying working with the ream for the upcoming film Happy New Year.
"It's a lot of fun. I am surrounded by mad people like Farah, Shahrukh, Abhishek, Boman, Sonu Sood and Vivan. They pamper me because Vivan and me are the youngest in the crew," Deepika said.
"Both Farah and Shahrukh feel protective (about me) like proud parents. I can see now Farah is letting me be on my own. In the Dubai schedule, she told me 'I really had to teach you everything, but now I don't have to tell you anything. You manage on your own'," she quoted Farah.
"I remember he did an interview before the release of the film and said that I was the soul of the film. I thought he was being too generous at that time. It feels nice to hear these things but if people have appreciated my performance, I would give him a lot of credit for it," she said. "It would be very selfish of me to say I have done this on my own. You are not alone in front of the camera, you are reacting to somebody. So it's as much his success as it is mine," Deepika said.
