Who inspired Dippy for her film?

Deepika Padukone


New Delhi, May 9 -- Actor Deepika Padukone, who is gathering rave reviews for her recent release Piku, says that to prepare for the role, she took inspiration from women around her.

"If you ask me what my inspiration for the role was, I think it's every woman today, especially from Delhi, because the story is based on a Delhi Family," she says.

However, the actor is quick to add that it's not that the film will connect only with women. "Boys, too, have a lot to learn. The film also talks about the relationship between a parent and a child, how it changes with time, the importance of children in the parents' life as they grow older. It's a very sensitive and beautiful film but told in a very entertaining manner," she adds.

And who helped her perfect the Bengali accent in the film? "My director was my tutor," she says.

The 29-year-old who made her debut with the 2007 movie Om Shanti Om alongside Shah Rukh Khan went on to do two more movies, Chennai Express (2013) and Happy New Year (2014) with the actor.

Asked to pick a favourite, she said, "Chennai express.. in terms of the fun. From a learning point of view, Om Shanti Om, because I learned so much."
