Deepika Padukone has been enjoying the best of all worlds ever since she was launched opposite Shah Rukh Khan in OM SHANTI OM. While she has worked with hotshots like Akshay Kumar (CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA), Saif Ali Khan (LOVE AAJ KAL) and Ranbir Kapoor (BACHNA AE HASEENO) in the last couple of years, she has KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SE, BREAK KE BAAD and YRF's untitled film lined up where she would be having Abhishek Bachchan, Imran Khan and Neil Nitin Mukesh respectively for company.
While on one hand she is happy to be working with relatively newer actor Farhan Akhtar in KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK, she is also hoping that she would have a senior actor like Salman Khan for company in near future.
'Yes, I am really looking forward to working with Salman', smiles Deepika who is happy mixing genres while working with top banners and actors, 'In fact we were supposed to be paired up much earlier but then a couple of films didn't quite work out. That's sad but I am sure that in near future, we would be paired opposite each other.'
This pretty much signifies that the list of actresses who wish to work with Salman Khan continues to grow stronger with every passing year. Salman too is enjoying a great phase in his career where he is working with younger actresses with every passing film. Zarine Khan (VEER), Ayesha Takia (WANTED), Asin (LONDON DREAMS), Kareena Kapoor (MAIN AURR MRS. KHANNA) and Katrina Kaif (YUVVRAAJ) are a clear testimony of this fact.
