Om Shanti Om: Interview of Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone is now the hot babe in Bollywood. It is her time and her name is coming in the media almost everyday for different reasons. Of course, her upcoming movie Om Shanti Om is the main reason for this. However, Deepika Padukone’s love life is also the attractive thing for the media. In fact, these days, I can find a number of reports in different websites about her love life. Deepika Padukone recently gave an interview to Times of India and there she talked about her upcoming movie. However, she was not too much interested to talk about her love life.

Here is an excerpt of the interview:

As part of the transparent new bunch, you’ve been pretty honest about your ‘friendships’. So where does the ‘relationship’ with Nihar Pandya stand?

I have no comment to offer on this really. Initially, in the spirit of transparency, I tried being honest with the media and I was surprised at some seriously irregular reporting. I was extremely hurt about the way some things were reported, while here I was trying to be honest; but I guess that’ll always be a part of the industry. With all the positives there will always be the negatives.

The fact that Ranbir’s film competes on the same day as yours, does it impact your friendship?

This rival talk is only in the media. When I meet my friends, it’s never about Ranbir or Sonam or competition. It’s all healthy. And there’s plenty of place for everyone. The only ‘connect’ is that the movies release on the same day.

Deepika Padukone should be more courageous. She is in the 21st century now. Having a boyfriend and changing a BF is no big deal in India these days. So, there is nothing to be worried. It will not affect her popularity at all. She can get some encouragement from Salman Khan I guess.
