Deepika : My Dream Role Is Kajol’s Part In DDLJ


Deepika Padukone loves romantic movies and says her ultimate aim is to do what Kajol did in ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ (DDLJ).

‘I loved DDLJ and my dream role is Kajol’s role in that film,’ said Deepika, who has done romantic comedies since her debut ‘Om Shanti Om’ in 2007.

”Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ came at a time when I was growing up and watching a lot of Indian cinema. At that time parents used to oppose (lovers in the film) and the couple used to go all out to get together…but the parents were there to stop them. There was so much drama on screen. Song sequences were shot in Switzerland. I used to love it,’ she added.

Deepika says she has enjoyed acting in romantic comedies like ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, ‘Chandni Chowk To China’, ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘Housefull’ and the just released ‘Break Ke Baad’ and relishes mushy stories.

‘As audience I have always enjoyed watching rom-coms which is why even as an actor I enjoy doing love stories.
