Deepika Padukone is ready to work in films beyond Bollywood, but she is not gunning for Hollywood. The versatile Indian actress is instead, keen to do a French or Iranian film, and she has even identified directors she would like to work with.
"I think French cinema is as beautiful as Indian cinema and like I said before, I don't think the medium matters as much as the story and the script. If I find something exciting, I would do it," the 28-year-old said here Wednesday at the 16th Mumbai Film Festival.
"'Priceless' is one of my most favourite French films. I have watched some Iranian films as well. I do like some directors and I have identified some directors I would like to work with," she added.
Deepika is currently busy promoting her mega commercial venture Happy New Year, which hits theatres on October 24.
Directed by Farah Khan, it also stars Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah.
