Deepika Padukone: I am an entertainer
January 21, 2012 02:26:29 PM IST Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial
Last year Deepika Padukone had two releases to her name (AARAKSHAN and DESI BOYZ) which was far lesser than five of her films that had released a year ago. This year is seemingly lighter again, what with only two confirmed releases (COCKTAIL and RACE 2) in the pipeline though there are chances of YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI arriving as well. What's common though amongst these films is that each of these brings her back in the glamorous zone. For someone who did experimental films like AARAKSHAN and KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SE, it seems she has made a conscious call to apply break on such genres and do some out and out commercial films.
"Honestly, I don't like to segregate films like commercial, middle of the road, art house, new age etc.," says Deepika, "I don't wish to tell audience either to leave their brains behind or bring them along. Come on, a film is a film after all. It's only in India where segregation around commercial and art takes place."
Still, she isn't looking the other way when it comes to acknowledging the commercial viabilities of her films.
"Of course I am conscious of that," says Deepika, "At the end of the day I am an entertainer and I should be able to entertain the audience in all films that I do. I do understand that there are certain kind of films that are appreciated only by niche audience while there are others which appeal to a larger number. The idea is to mix and match."
Well lady, as long as we can have the ultra glam Deepika entertaining on screen, we won't mind.
