Actor Deepika Padukone, who has hit the right chords at the box-office in the past, is now excited about her two upcoming films — Abbas Mustan’s Race 2 and Ayan Mukherjee’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. “They are two extremely different films to begin with, so each has its own fun. As an actor I want to explore as many emotions onscreen as possible and not stick to a genre just because it’s worked for me,” she’d said referring to trying her hand at action apart from the romcoms that she is often associated with. “Be it an Aarakshan or a Cocktail, I am just glad that people have accepted me in all roles,” she added.
As for juggling time between her films and endorsements, she admits that the pace does get hectic, “but I am living it up work-style” and adds she has no complaints. “Why would there be any. I am doing things that I enjoy, so it’s okay,” quips Deepika.
About Race 2, which will see her in an action avatar, Deepika says that it was thrilling to push the envelope. “Things like these challenge you out of your comfort zone and keep you on your toes, so it’s something I look forward to as well,” she adds.
