Deepika Padukone, who has completed nine years in Bollywood, feels she has just started in the film industry and says she is ready for bigger challenges like “Padmavati”.
“I don’t feel like I have completed nine years. I feel like I have just started off. I feel like I have a lot more to give. I feel like I am ready for even more challenging roles and films. And I am excited about one of those experiences because ‘Padmavati’ is going to be extremely difficult,” Deepika said.
“But I think I’m ready for that experience and that journey,” Deepika added, speaking at the red carpet for Lux Golden Rose Awards on Saturday night.
The “Bajirao Mastani” star was also happy to talk about her debut film “Om Shanti Om” being made into a Japanese musical.
“They are making it into a play and the Japanese people loved Shantipriya (her role in the movie). The premiere of the musical is going to be in July next year. Most probably, Farah Khan and I would be going together for that,” she said.
