We have to wait another five months before this film hits cinemas, but actress Deepika Padukone has talked briefly to the Indian press about her upcoming release Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The film is being directed by Ayan Mukerji under Dharma Productions, where Deepika will be seen paired opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Their last film together was YRF’s Bachna Ae Haseeno back in 2008, when they were both still new to the film industry.
Speaking about Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Deepika said that working on the film enabled her to connect with her character on a personal level. She said that this was more so compared to the character she played in her last film Cocktail, where she was seen as the feisty Veronica Malaney. “Actually ‘Yeh Jawaani…’ is very similar to me in person like Veronica was not. I think Veronica, as a character, as a person is very different from how I am personally but ‘Yeh Jawaani…’ is very similar to how I am.”
Deepika received a lot of critical praise for her performance in Cocktail and she is already picking up nominations at film award ceremonies for it. Will she impress us again with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani? We will have to wait and see when the film releases in cinemas on 31 May 2013!
