Deepika Padukone has worked with Saif Ali Khan in LOVE AAJ KAL. Now in AARAKSHAN though she would be getting into a different zone with Saif, Deepika is more curious than anxious to know how her pairing would look like this time around.

"When you have worked with someone earlier, it obviously leads to a certain amount of comfort level from the very beginning," says Deepika who has just stepped back into Mumbai after spending months in London shooting for two of her films, "That initial awkwardness goes away because there is a sense of familiarity that sets in. Having said that it wasn't like we were catching up on the lost times or anything. Our interaction was primarily about the work that we were doing together and that's about it. So yes, we were both doing our own thing. He is the way he is and is great that way."

With things heating up for AARAKSHAN, it is quite obvious that with men like Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan and Manoj Bajpai coming together, heavy duty drama would indeed take centre-stage. However given the fact that other actresses in her age group and league are concentrating more on being a part of quintessential Bollywood affairs than rely on song and dance affairs, what makes Deepika push the envelope and mix films like AARAKSHAN that deal with topical issues.

"I guess I was always so ready to be a part of a film like this. Somewhere out there I wanted to be a part of a debate where the issue of reservation is addressed," she says in a serious tone, "When you watch the film, you would realise that there is a message that it is trying to send out. When you look at it closely, there is a plus as well as minus side to 'reservation'. I am playing someone who is torn between both these sides and it was this dilemma that excited me the most. I was genuinely impressed with what Prakashji narrated to me and knew what I had to do this film."
