Sultry Deepika Padukone can be seen gracing the cover of the latest edition of Grazia. When asked how much she charges for such activities, she says, “I charge what I think I am worth and if people are willing to pay me that much, it must mean that they think that I’m worth it too. No one affords risks like investing in actors they don’t really believe in.”

Danish-born Deepika made a stunning Bollywood debut in Om Shanti Om winning buckets of awards and has since thrilled us in Bachna na Haseeno. She will soon be seen opposite Akshay Kumar in Chandni Chowk to China and later next year in Production no.1

Despite all the praise she is enjoying, she is keeping her feet firmly on the ground. “I am only two films old in Bollywood, so I find it a little premature when people call me successful,” she explains, “When I approach a shot, I give it my best. It’s great if the film clicks. If it doesn’t, I don’t brood over it.”

She talks energetically about her role in Chandni Chowk to China: “I am very fond of the movie because it’s the first time I have attempted action in a film,” she says. “I had been training in jujitsu most of last year that involves hanging from cables and wires. There’s this particular fight sequence that I have with Akshay in the movie which I was quite nervous about. He taught me action should be like a dance, smooth and graceful.”
