Deepika returns rejuvenated!

By HT

Mumbai, Aug. 8 -- Last year, Deepika Padukone managed to juggle the shooting schedules of three films - Chennai Express, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela.

And coincidentally, this year, too, the actor has a similar schedule. But Deepika says that she is "ready" to manage them, as she has returned from a "rejuvenating" month-long vacation in Europe.

"I took a break to prepare for the films I am working on, as all of them will be happening one after the other, much like last year. Since there's not much prep time between them, I decided to take about a month off. I wanted to get rejuvenated before taking up the three projects," says Deepika.

While she has already started shooting for Imtiaz Ali's next with Ranbir Kapoor, the other two projects are Shoojit Sicar's next, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming ambitious venture.

Talking about the schedules, Deepika says [that an ideal situation] "would, of course, be to start one film, finish it, and take a nice break", but she also adds that "you don't plan such things".

The actor says that she is not perturbed about juggling projects, as she understands that a film undergoes several processes before it releases.

"It's not always that simple. Sometimes there is a delay in the schedule, or some patchwork is left [to be shot], or the dubbing is remaining. So, something or the other comes up and the films start to overlap. I had a nice break, and I am ready to take up the three films now.
