Deepika surprised by popularity of 'Nagada Sang Dhol'
Deepika Padukone's graceful dance moves in the 'Nagada Sang Dhol' song from Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela have been widely appreciated but she doubts if she can recreate the grandeur of the number without the aid of the film's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
She says the song's popularity was the "least expected of the lot".
"There were other songs in the album which we thought would become popular... this was the underdog," Deepika said to IANS.
"In fact, I am doing a show where I am expected to recreate that magic but I don't think I'll be able to do that if I don't have Sanjay to direct," she said.
Deepika is slated to perform at the Temptation Reloaded show in Dubai on Sunday 1 December with stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit.
On the film front, after a series of blockbusters to her credit, Deepika will next be seen in Finding Fanny Fernandes.
"It should be ready to release soon. I am also doing Happy New Year with Abhishek Bachchan and Shah Rukh, all fun boys to work with. I am also looking forward to start Imtiaz's film with Ranbir," said Deepika.
And is she planning a holiday sometime soon?
"I am sure I can squeeze in some family time, it's always welcome," said the 27-year-old, who recently made time to attend a friend's engagement in her hometown Bangalore.
After all the hard work we think you deserve some time out DP.
