Deepika Padukone Follows Shah Rukh Khan

Deepika Padukone has said that she idolize Shah Rukh Khan for 17 years. This model turned actress has recently acted in her debut Bollywood film Om Shanti Om. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan acted against Deepika in the movie. The movie is set to release on 9 November 2007. Recently I have got an interview of Deepika Padukone in times of India website. In the interview she also talked about her personal life. She turned down the speculation of having any envy with Sonam Kapoor and showed reluctance to comment on her relationship with Nihar Pandya. Here I am quoting some lines from the interview from Times of India:

So Deepika, quite a debut- biggest of banners, a hot director and SRK. Comment...
Yes. And I’m so grateful for it. Frankly, I couldn’t have asked for a bigger break. To launch with Farah Khan, who has so much experience, and has been so successful at everything she’s done. Also, her being a lady director, my comfort level as a newcomer was sky-high. Then, of course, there is Shah Rukh. He rules. I’ve idolised him for over 17 years now — he’s the best. I guess I got very lucky!

So much of newsprint is being consumed by your ready-to-boom rivalry with Sonam Kapoor. Your thoughts...
There is no rivalry between us. We’ve probably just met twice and for about a few seconds only. Our rivalry is all created by media. We’re working on two different films; it’s just that they’re releasing on the same day.

Deepika Padukone seems to have enough maturity the way she responded to the questions. Many think that she is going to be a future star in Bollywood. I do not go for any prediction. However, it is also true that she has talent to be the future star.
