Deepika Padukone essays a double role in Nikhil Advani directed CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA. She has two distinct looks in the film, one which is pure Indian while other which is Chinese. Incidentally two characters that Deepika portrays are twins in the film.

'Yet again, I have a double role to enact in a film. In my first film OM SHANTI OM, I had a double role too though it was separated by 25 odd years. It was the case of being 'born again'. However, the difference this time around is that both the characters belong to the same times', says Deepika while maintaining that it wasn't easy to be playing both the parts.

In this Rohan Sippy production, she plays the role of Sakhi a.k.a. Ms. TSM (Tele Shoppers Media) who has embarked on a journey to pay homage to the land of her birth and her dead father and twin. Her other role requires her to enact the part of a sexy femme fatale who is interestingly named 'Meow Meow'.

'It was quite challenging to be doing a double role in CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA. While the Indian girl is sweet and simple, the Chinese is energetic, athletic and sexy. I am happy to have got an opportunity to play a simple as well as a sexy girl in one single film', adds Deepika.

Says Nikhil Advani, 'With Akshay Kumar being cast as 'Sidhu', we had to find a very special girl. She had to be someone who could be comfortable playing a very beautiful Ms. TSN and at the same time turn into a fabulously sexy femme fatale Meow Meow. Basically the girl in the film had to be someone who was fresh, physically very fit and a good actress. Luckily the most exciting debutante actress to hit Bollywood films in a while, Deepika Padukone, came on board and we had our casting in place.'

Final words of reassurance come from Ramesh Sippy as he states – 'Look out for this girl'!
