Next up on Famously Filmfare is Bollywood’s ultra-glam diva Deepika Padukone, where she will talk about her first film Om Shanti Om and how Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan took her for the role without holding a screen test.
 
Reminiscing about the career changing opportunity, Deepika says, “I had never been to a film set, didn’t know how to say dialogues and basics about body language. It gives me goose bumps thinking, without knowing whether I will deliver or not, but Farah and SRK trusted me. They literally hand held me through the entire process.”
 
The Tamasha star will speak at length about how at a later stage in her career, a director, after having given a confirmation, backed out from signing her for a movie she was keen to be a part of, while Farah kept her word on casting her for Om Shanti Om despite being a newbie.
 
From Bollywood to her Hollywood debut, the Piku star has come a long way in her flourishing career.
 
Talking more about films and co-stars, she will also be seen talking about her xXx: Return of the Xander Cage co-star Vin Diesel and her experience of working in the film.
 
On the work front, Deepika is busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum-opus Padmavati which also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
