Deepika Padukone agrees that Cocktail was a turning point for her
In 2012 Deepika Padukone made the nation sit back and take notice of her as a talented diva! Yes, the actress who had made her debut in 2007 had given several good performances since then, but what 2012 flick Cocktail did for her career, was something else. And well, this is not just our belief even Deepika herself agrees with it.
Cocktail completes nine years today. The film directed by Homi Adajania, written by Imtiaz Ali and co-starring Saif Ali Khan and Diana Penty was a musical hit. It saw Deepika Padukone play the role of party animal Veronica who falls hard in love and puts her friendship on stake. Deepika Padukone’s role became the hero of the film and the actress went away with all the applause and accolades. The actress speaks about how the film was a turning point for her to a leading daily.
Deepika said, “Veronica will always be one of my most special characters I’ve played; one that changed a lot for me professionally and impacted me personally.” She even agrees that though she was offered Meera’s role (played by Diana Penty), it was Imtiaz Ali who asked her to re-read the script from Veronica’s POV. And well Deepika took the risk and chose the latter role. The actress even thanked her director Homi Adajania who helped her to play the role to the T.
Post the success of Cocktail, the actress never looked back. She went on to become the box-office numero uno and continues her reign. The actress has signed a dozen big budget films and we can’t wait for all of them to roll out one-after-the other. She has Fighter with Hrithik Roshan, a film with Prabhas, Shakun Batra’s next, The Intern remake with Amitabh Bachchan, Pathan with Shah Rukh Khan, rumours are rife another flick with SRK helmed by Atlee and then she has her dream project – Draupadi. She even has a special role in Ranveer Singh starrer ’83 and a special dance number in Ranveer’s Cirkus. Phew! What a line-up.
