Comments and quotes on Deepika..
These are comments from famous people after watching Deepika on screen/ working with her and knowing her.
Amitabh Bachchan-"Deepika was statuesque, regal and endearing." Mr. Bachchan's statement on Deepika's OSO performance.
Rukh Khan-"The star of the film (Om Shanti Om) is Deepika. She has done
a great job in the film. We all tried to outdo her by our performance
but she has managed to beat all of us. Her acting in the film is
excellent and she has the potential to become a great actress in the
Atul Kasbekar (Bollywood photographer who worked with Deepika on a fashion
calendar) : Deepika Padukone is very special, not just to the industry,
but also to my family. Her aunt was the gynaec who delivered our twins
and that's when I met her as a gangly, coltish young girl. And I said,
'Listen to me and we'll make you a star.' Deepika has the X-factor and
I don't think SRK and Farah Khan arefools to back her in a multi-crore
project if they didn't see that unique quality in her.
Atul Kasbekar (Photographer): Deepika is the leggy Manglorean lass who the camera
can't stop romancing. Ace photographer Atul Kasbekar, who has shot her
at length, says, "She's a phenomenal model and has the makings of the
next big superstar. She is a classic Indian beauty like a Madhuri Dixit
or Rani Mukerji. Her appeal lies in her eyes."
Khan (Director): Deepika is a classic beauty who has the poise of a
South actress. She's also a fabulous dancer and after doing her screen
test I was convinced she'll work for the film. I really felt as if I
was launching my own daughter.
Roversi (Fashion Photographer) : "I've been an ardent admirer of the
classic Indian look for years. Deepika has that and more. She also has
a certain calming effect about her. She exudes regality in her stride
and has the most beautiful pair of eyes."
Kher : Deepika was a student in his second batch (June-August 2005) and
Kher remembers her as a diligent learner. "She came with the reputation
of being a successful model, yet she never had any airs about herself.
She realized that film was a new medium and she slogged tirelessly to
understand, and emerge, on top of the heap,"
Vijay Mallya (Business Tycoon-KingFisher Airlines): "Deepika is the face of India
and the hearthrobs of millions. I wanted someone who is not only the
face but also the ears for us. She is someone with beauty and brains.
Also, I have had the pleasure and priviledge of knowing her father, one of the few world champions that India has produced."
