Deepika Padukone is currently enjoying the happy phase, both in her personal as well as professional life. Her last film Padmaavat was a huge blockbuster success. Though her next movie with Irrfan Khan got postponed due to his ill-health, the actress has her diary full with commercials and magazine cover shoots.
Recently, Deepika was in Chennai to attend an event for a brand which she endorses. Later, she gave an interview to the leading daily, The Hindu, where she spoke about the growing trend of women-centric films and biopics. Here's what Deepika had to say.
Deepika On Women-Centric Films
The gorgeous actress was quoted as saying, " I wouldn't say there is a dearth. I definitely feel like it's getting a little repetitive, though."
Deepika Says Roles Are Being Written For Women
"I think it has changed already. I don't think women in film today are in a place where they have to wait - or look - for a strong female part. It's all there. Now, it really boils down to the specific content: whether a particular film excites a particular actor or not."
Her Take On The Growing Trend On Biopics
"I feel like there are too many biopics being made. In the last few months, I can't count the number of biopics that we've been offered."
'Even A Common Man Has Had A Similar Journey'
Deepika further added, "They're all great; they're very strong and powerful. But when it comes to a film, after a point, how much are you going to tell me about those struggles? Even a common man on the street has had a similar journey, if you ask me."
Here's Why Piku Remains Her Favourite Film Till Date
"Piku is my most favourite film of all time. Not because I'm in it, but as a film. Just the way the story and subject was handled, the way it came together, all of it. I'm yet to see a film that did that to me," the actress was quoted as saying.
