Over a period of time, one consistent factor that has been seen in Deepika's choice of films is that it is top actors and big banners that seem to attract her most. While low budget 'experimental' cinema doesn't seem to be enticing her much, one wonders if this is the kind of pattern that she has decided for herself in the industry.

"No, it is not a conscious decision at all", Deepika says with a straight face, "Now if great banners, good directors and fabulous co-stars are being offered to me, then I would be a fool to refuse them. Of course I get other offers as well but if I am getting something so good, I would pick the best out of them, right? I do what I believe in and I really want to be a part of it. This is the reason why even just a few weeks back, I was seen in KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK. Now it did have a debutant director like Vijay (Lalwani) and an experimental genre. And now I would be seen in HOUSEFULL. I guess that's a fair balance."

Also, more often than not, her choices have been bang on target, case in point being LOVE AAJ KAL where everything fell into place with Imtiaz Ali, Saif Ali Khan and romcom genre working perfect for her. Still, the fact is that though the film was one of the biggest hits of 2009 before 3 IDIOTS happened, Deepika didn't quite paint the town red with her achievement. While other top leading ladies are (rightly) expected to do that, why did she choose to be so quiet in spite of such a huge hit under her belt, especially so when her next potential blockbuster, HOUSEFULL, is round the corner?

"I don't think I should be harping about myself", says Deepika, "I know what the film has done for me and I know how my performance was received by the audience. This is what is of utmost importance. I believe in action speaking for itself and you know what LOVE AAJ KAL has done for me? It has got me some more great films and great directors. I think has been a great enough reward."
