Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone will be seen in never-before character in Tamil movie Kochadaiyaan. She is making her debut in Kollywood in the Rajinikanth starrer flick. The multilingual flick is directed by the superstar's daughter Soundarya Ashwin.
The director has praised Deepika Padukone for her dedication towards the project. Soundarya Ashwin has said that when she first offered the movie to the Bollywood actress, Deepika asked a few questions as she was a little apprehensive about her characterisation in the movie.
Deepika Padukone enquired about the technicalities of the project and how the technology would work. The actress also asked the most usual question asked by top actresses - how I would be projected on-screen?
Soundarya claims, "When I first approached Deepika with Kochadaiyaan, she was a little apprehensive and had several questions pertaining to the filming process, how the technology would work, and most importantly, how she would look!"
Deepika Padukone dedicated herself to the character after the initial inquiry. Soundarya Ashwin claims that the actress is a true professional as she completed her portions in just 48 hours. The director says, "Once those questions were cleared, Deepika Padukone was fully committed to the project." Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
