Love For Malayali Cuisine
Interestingly, Deepika is a huge fan of Malayali cuisine, and has a special fondness for Appam and Puttu. She made sure that she had Appam first thing in the morning.
Deepika Padukone is also a huge fan of Malayalam films. She is extremely impressed with the new wave in the Malayalam movie industry.
Deepika said she was moved by the blockbuster movie Bangalore Days, directed by Anjali Menon. She stated that it is one of her all-time favourite films.
If she receives a good offer from Malayalam movie industry, Deepika is ready to make her Mollywood debut. For her, language and budget are not barriers.
According to Deepika, Malayalam films are surely a great inspiration for the Hindi film industry. A lot of Bollywood film-makers are referring Malayalam films for ideas.
You will only achieve success if you really enjoy what you do. It is also very important to maintain the right balance between the personal and professional aspects of life.
The actress stated that she has watched several Malayalam films, including Bangalore Days. Deepika remarked that Malayalam movies have always been a huge inspiration for the Hindi movie industry.
When she was asked whether Mollywood can afford her remuneration, Deepika jokingly asked, "Why can't you afford me when you can accommodate other stars?". This clearly indicates that she is eyeing Mollywood.
Katrina Kaif had made her Mollywood debut with the Mammootty starring action thriller Balram V/s Tharadas in 2006. Huma Qureshi also entered Mollywood with a Mammootty starrer, the recently released White.
Well, we really hope that Deepika Padukone will keep her promise and foray into Malayalam cinema in the near future. Will she debut with our superstars or the supremely talented young actors?
