Deepika Padukone who will be playing a role of an out of work bar-dancer in ‘Happy New Year’ which also stars Shahrukh Khan, says she has been working hard to be a great dancer in the film.
“Farah had a list of do’s for the actress. I will prepare for it like any other film. If I am required to be a great dancer in the film, I will have to work damn hard. She wants a girl who is Maharashtrian, good dancer and a specific look. Manish Malhotra is doing my clothes, my hair stylist is there, I hope it turns out good,” Deepika said.
Her previous movie ‘Chennai Express’ did wonders at the box office and managed to grab maximum eyeballs when the movie was aired on Zee TV last month, taking the TV channel to be the number one channel.
“Record after record in our kitty, I am very happy. It is a great feeling…. Whether we like it or not, it (film) did get lot of love and appreciation. Forget it on TV, people even went to see the film again in theatres. It is that kind of the film that has repeat value. It is a wholesome entertainer. When you make the film from heart, I think this can be the end result (records),” she said
But the records aren’t putting any pressure on Deepika Padukone what-so-ever.
“I take each film as it comes. I put same kind of effort for ‘Ram-Leela’ as in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and ‘Chennai Express’. I have done the film with the same kind of hard work, conviction and honesty. I hope the end result is same as my previous films,” Deepika said.
