New Delhi, May 5 -- For actor Deepika Padukone success is finding happiness in all that she does - be it professional or personal.

"I think success is to find happiness in my work. To be excited about the work I do, that is success for me. To hope that every film of mine surpasses my last film is success," says Deepika.

Although being a public figure can have its challenges, the 29-year-old says that she does not let herself get bothered by these. "There are too many positives (of being a public figure) to be worrying about the few things which might irk one once in a while," says Deepika, who is looking forward to the release of her film Piku, which also features actors Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan. A major part of the film was also shot in the Capital, and Deepika says she loves shooting in the city.

"I love shooting in Delhi. My association with Delhi started when I started my modeling career. I used to come here for my work," says Deepika, adding that she has a special connect with the city in which many of her films have been shot.

"I have had some wonderful experiences in Delhi. I got to spent a lot of time in Delhi, when I was shooting for Love Aaj Kal (2009). We shot a lot of Piku and Tamasha here," she says.
