"I have great chemistry with Ranbir, Saif, SRK" — Deepika on 'Ram-leela' and more
Deepika Padukone has already had a terrific year with two huge blockbusters, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express, and if the initial trailers are anything to go by, a hat-trick is definitely on the cards with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus, Ram-leela.
Deepika's scorching chemistry, with rumoured beau Ranveer Singh in the clips of the film is the talk of the town, but the actress plays it down and attributes it to the film's script for her camaraderie with her buff co star.
"I have had great chemistry with three other people as well. I have had it with Ranbir (Kapoor), Saif (Ali Khan) and Shah Rukh (Khan). I think that's really a classic example of 'chemistry lies in the script'. It lies in the dialogues, it lies in the way the characters are written," said the actress at the unveiling of a magazine.
She also says "a large part" of the chemistry is to do with "your comfort level with your co-star".
"But the fact that I have had great chemistry with three to four people, (I guess) a lot of it is in the script," she added.
"I hope 2014 is as special for me as 2013 was. In the beginning of the year the only thing I knew was I am going to have four releases. I didn't know how each of them is going to do. Each film was so different from the other.
"It also tested me in terms of the amount of work I was doing because there was a time when I was shooting Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Ram-leela at the same time.
"But looking at the results of Chennai Express and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, I can't complain. It was worth every minute of being on those film sets. I just hope with Ram-leela and the other films that I am doing, it is going to be equally special," she finished off.
Ram-leela is an adaptation of Shakespeare's classic Romeo & Juliet and hits the marquee next week, 15 November 2013.
