Ever since the release of OM SHANTI OM (2007), Deepika Padukone has been seen in two more films - BACHNA AE HASEENO (2008) and CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA (2009).

However, the leggie beauty insists that if at all there is a special movie after Farah Khan directed OM SHANTI OM, it has to be LOVE AAJ KAL that has Imtiaz Ali at the helm of affairs. We caught up with Deepika Padukone who is currently in London shooting for Sajid Khan's HOUSEFULL where she is paired opposite Akshay Kumar.

There are huge expectations from LOVE AAJ KAL. People perceive it to be next BIG romantic drama in the offering. In an excited tone Deepika speaks, ''Thanks. Yes, I am aware about the huge expectations that audiences have from LOVE AAJ KAL. Personally speaking though, the film is beyond expectations for me. I would rather call it as a very special film. We all have worked so hard on it, whether Imtiaz, Saif (Ali Khan) or I, and we have become really attached to it.''


The film releases coming Friday. And must she be definitely feeling great, considering the fact that the film is as real as it gets. Deepika opens up, ''This is why I said that after OM SHANTI OM if there is a film that has been really special, it is LOVE AAJ KAL. I can state three reasons on what really fascinates me about LOVE AAJ KAL.''

Continues, ''First and foremost the film's storyline is such that any common man can relate to. It's so real and as you watch the film, you would feel that so many instances shown in it have happened to you too in real life.''

How about the other two?

''Secondly, the film has a universal appeal. Whether it's the younger or the older generation, all would be able to identify with the proceedings. Imtiaz has a knack of keeping things basic and very simple, something that the world saw in JAB WE MET and SOCHA NA THA. His trademark touch is prevalent in LOVE AAJ KAL too,' answers Deepika. And? ''Third reason is the dialogues that promise to be as natural as they get. They are more of conversational variety rather than sounding scripted. Imtiaz wanted all us actors to perform rather than plain and simple mug up our dialogues and rattle them down. Yes, there was a dialogue sheet given but it was mainly for reference,'' the swanky actress adds.

It seems like Deepika is really impressed with the entire freedom that came with the film, ''Exactly! That's because there was nothing cast on stone and we actors were given a free hand to mouth dialogues that came naturally to them and suited the film's situation most. I guess this was one aspect that really made me open up a lot more during the film's shoot!''

With Rishi Kapoor and Rahul Khanna in pivotal roles and Neetu Singh making a guest appearance, LOVE AAJ KAL is Saif Ali Khan's first home production with Pritam's music already topping the charts. Carrying excellent reports all over, the film is expected to take a hurricane start at the box office once it hits the screens on 31st July.
