Salman spotted me first: Deepika Padukone

She may have done some of the most successful films of her career with Shah Rukh Khan, but that has not stopped Deepika Padukone from being in touch with actor Salman Khan, who’s known to be SRK’s arch-rival.

“Salman and I are in touch. When he sees my films or watches my ads or spots my (movie) posters somewhere, he lets me know what he feels about them,” shares Dippy. And though she debuted with SRK in Om Shanti Om (2007), she says it was Salman who had offered her a Bollywood film for the first time.

“He (Salman) spotted me way before Om Shanti Om ... when I did my first ad,” she told us. The two have apparently not been able to work together because their dates haven’t matched, but Deepika says, “Whichever film I do with Salman will be a special film.”
