Deepika: I can be so naked in front of Ranveer

No comments
It is different when you reach the deep end of Deepika. She is natural, free-flowing, yet striking her diva-esque flair at all times. With soul unveiled and emotions exhaled. No hint or trace of competitiveness, calculation or compare. Just a young woman - vulnerable, venerated and well ... loved and desired too.

Even eloquent and 'zen-like' when posed with questions that push borders. She feels no rivalry in real-life, but for her upcoming epic film Bajirao Mastani, she bloodies her soul and goes to war for love. This is Deepika Padukone. To the world- a star, a diva. At core, a woman - an actress peddling her wares and her immense talent.

Two men on set - one (Bhansali) with a penchant for perfection, the other (Ranveer) with excessive energy. How did you keep pace?

I don't try to keep up with anyone else. I am clear about my energy and understanding with my director. Ranveer and I are so different, and Sanjay sir (Bhansali) and Ranveer are so different. The best thing is that our energies come together, and we all find our own rhythm. We have done Ram Leela together, which felt like the toughest film of my life. After doing Bajirao Mastani, I think that was a breeze. To tell you the truth, Bhansali has hardly directed me in this film. We have a different sort of connection; we don't need to speak much. He looks at me, I look at him and it is understood. He rarely had to talk me through anything in this film.

But isn't he extremely demanding as a director? You broke down while filming a scene.

I haven't met anyone who is so consumed and intoxicated by cinema as Bhansali. He has a beautiful mind, he is poetic, sensual, sexy and borderline raunchy - all in a magical way. He admits that he has no life beyond movies. His only other life is his mom, sister, dog and all of two friends. For him, there is no chalta hai attitude, or upar se kar lo option. I cried while shooting the Kathak dance sequence, because I was pushed to the corner and I didn't know how to crack it. As an actor he makes me feel fearless.

Ranveer prepped for the role without an iota of distraction, while you were juggling between other films. Are you a turn-on, turn-off kind of actress?

For me, the process is more internal than external. I didn't put myself through the process of shutting off, maybe it would have been ideal, but I was tempted by other films I was doing simultaneously. I guess women are better at multitasking. Also with Bhansali, you can rehearse as much, but it is pointless. God forbid, if you end up doing what you rehearsed the previous day, he will sit behind the camera eating chana and look bored. He will wait for you to blow his mind away. It doesn't matter how we do it, we have to figure it out and show it to him.

It was interesting to see Ranbir and Ranveer promote each other's films, however subtly. The industry isn't as aggressively competitive, as we believe it is?

I have always said this - actors are not as competitive as it appears, it is just the way it is projected and interpreted. Even all the negativity that reportedly exists between actors is often exaggerated.

Have you faced negativity?

Yes, I have. I don't encourage it and don't let it figure into my scheme of things.

Are you competitive?

Of course, I am competitive, but not in a rivalry sort of way. I want my last film to compete with my next. I watch other actors' works, but I don't follow them. I don't know who is doing which film and whose release is coming up next.

Is it because you are in a good, secure space now - all the way at the top?

Honestly, I don't know where I am and I don't allow myself to be aware of it. Everyone around me tries to make me aware and conscious of it. I know when I say this people often think I am being fake or politically correct or too poised. The fact is that my goals, dreams and ambition is beyond all this. Even Ranveer wonders how I can be so Zen-like all the time. I don't know any other way to be.

While shooting the 'Pinga' song, where Priyanka and you share screen space, didn't you even for a moment want to outdo her?

Our screen characters had to be a certain way, but I never felt that we had to carry that energy off set. In fact, Sanjay sir was troubled by the fact that Priyanka and I didn't have a showdown or a catfight. He wished we didn't get along and he would actually sulk because we were bonding between shots. In his animated style he would tell us, 'It feels like you girls are doing fugdi before coming out of the van. This is not what I want!' We told him we will create it for him when the camera rolls, but too bad we didn't feel that way in reality.

Your chemistry with Ranbir and Ranveer seems to be the talking point of your movies and promotions. Does it irk you?

People thought Irrfan and I shared great chemistry in Piku, but no one asked awkward questions then. They didn't ask him who I made a hotter pair with. In the case of Ranveer and Ranbir, they are always posed with the similar question - who looks hotter with me?! It feels awkward. There is no need to compare, and one does not have to be better than the other. Besides, it is not that complicated. If, at some point, I reverse the kind of films I do with both of them (like a sweet romance with Ranveer and a sensual, passionate film with Ranbir) - then probably a comparison makes sense.

Are you a romantic at heart?

Absolutely! I am extremely romantic. I like the typical candle-light dinners, flowers and all that attention, but that's a small part of it. If all that comes because of the man's personality, it is good. But if it is not genuine and he is doing it to just impress me, I will know it right away. In love, once you cut all the bulls**t, the real thing starts and that is the difficult part.

Would you ever let your career take a back seat for love and marriage?

For me, giving up my career is not an option for family life. I want both and I will have both. I have always wondered why women have to choose between family and career. Men are never asked to give up one for the other.

Ranveer says he feels a divine connection with you. What do you feel?

He is my best friend (and this is not to be taken lightly). I am emotional, sensitive and vulnerable and I hurt easily. I can be so naked in front of Ranveer... and I know he will never hurt me or take me for granted. That is the kind of trust and understanding we have. The reason I love and respect him is that I can bare my soul and still feel comfortable. If this is divine connection - this is what it is!

It seems your first Hollywood film is on the verge of taking off? The picture of you with XXX star Vin Diesel set off an alarm in Bollywood.

(Flashes a big smile, with a hint of undeniable pride) The world will know, soon!

Deepika gives Ranveer a peck on his cheek or air kissed?

No comments
They may deny their relationship how much ever they want, but the truth is out there for everyone to see. Be it them doing dubsmash videos together or playing the dhol in front of the media, Ranveer and Dippy surely are head over heels for another. And these latest pictures of the two at the airport, are only proving our point! The two love birds were spotted at the airport, looking trendy and fashionable, as usual.

Dippy looked chic in a pair of black slacks and top, which she teamed with a funky polka dotted white shirt, black sneakers and a matching fedora hat.

The Bajirao Mastani actress completed her look with a pair of swanky shades and she truly looked like a lady, much in Vogue! Her beau Ranveer on the other hand, was seen in a pair of denim half pants, which he teamed with sneakers, black shades and a cap. This couple surely is one of the most stylish ones on the block, right peeps?

It was nice to see the two walking together side by side and being comfortable in front of the media. The usually guarded Dippy let her hair loose for once, and embraced Ranveer before heading her separate way! It looks like the actress gave her beau an air kiss before stepping into her car. Check these pictures out:

Now we aren’t sure whether Dippy simply hugged Ranveer,gave him a peck on his cheek or air kissed him. But it certainly seems like she did the last one. One can and will never know! Nonetheless, we love this picture and the fact that the couple was openly embracing one another in front of the shutterbugs.
Aren’t Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone the cutest? Comment out below.

Why Sonakshi Sinha Says NO To Bikinis

No comments
Sonakshi Sinha has often been on the wrong side of the fashion police. But the Dabangg girl is all set to change that. Flaunting a newly sculpted body, Sonakshi has done a photoshoot for the December 2013 issue of L'Officiel India. With Sonakshi going bold and playing up her oomph factor, this shoot breaks all stereotypes this demure beauty has been cast into. Wearing a sheer Jatin Verma gown, she has been photogrpahed by Suresh Natrajan. Excerpts from her interview done as part of her photoshoot:

You look very different from a typical Hindi film heroine. Does that work for or against you in Bollywood?
3 years. 9 films. Mostly all biggest grossers of the year. So you tell me if that has worked for me or against me? And I received a lot of appreciation for holding on my own, no matter who I was paired with, be it Salman or the current favourite Ranveer.   

Talking of Ranveer, you made considerable advances on him in Lootera, breaking your on-screen image of a demure woman. You even did an intimate scene with him. Will we see you breaking more boundaries on screen in future? Like in a bikini? Or a steamy kissing scene?
As you move ahead in life, you tend to do different things that will naturally break some old moulds that people may have set you in. I did an intimate scene with Ranveer because the script required it, not because I was looking to ditch my coy on-screen image. And I stuck to doing only what I was comfortable with. When Vikramaditya (Motwane) came to me with the script, it had a full-fledged kissing scene. I told him I won’t be able to do it. He really wanted me to be a part of the film so he accommodated my demand and replaced the kissing scene with an aesthetically shot intimate scene. As for a bikini, I won’t be at ease being seen in one, so I won’t do it. I have to face my parents. I like being edgy and experimental sometimes, but I won’t cross the line of comfort.  

Do you think being a Sinha daughter has helped you in your Bollywood innings? Or like many other Bollywood kids, are you also going to crib about the family name putting pressure on you instead? 
I did get a lot of opportunities served on a platter because of my family name. Why should I deny it? But having said that, the family name only helps you get your foot into the industry, which in itself is a big deal. After that, if you don’t prove yourself, you are written off. My audiences loved me from my debut in Dabbang. They saw a spark in me, and that pushed me to give more. I don’t know the last time so much pressure was put on any actress.
