She will be seen romancing with the our very own, Khiladi Kumar, who is in his early forties, in the soon to release, Housefull, slated for the 30th of April.
Soon after, audience will be treated to youthful romance with Imran Khan (in his twenties) playing her co -star in Kunal Kohli's Break Ke Baad.
Up ahead in the line up of the tinsel town males she will romance on screen is Junior Bachchan , in his early thirties, paired together for the first time with the charming Deepika in Khelien Hum Jee Jaan Sey.
Finally, the Johnny Gaddar seriously talented (28 year old) Neil Nitin Mukesh will play the lady's leading guy in Lafange Parindey.
Deepika Padukone, who made her debut opposite the Shah Rukh 'forty plus' Khan in Om Shanti Om, and later gave a super hit with Saif 'also forty plus' Khan in the form of Love Aaj Kal, remains unruffled. The age variation among the men, and the consequent demand out of her as an artist to portray the lady love roles accordingly is only another opportunity to prove herself and evolve!
BollyCurry agrees with her 'no qualms' strategy. Is this not the same industry where Nargis Dutt played mother to her own real life husband Sunil Dutt in the first ever Oscar nominated Bollywood movie, Mother India?
Why should Deeps be thinking twice at taking the challenge!
