Bollywood star Deepika Padukone famously refused to work in Fast and Furious 7 and chose to promote Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram-Leela instead. While the actor says she still doesn’t regret her decision, she is now ready to explore options in the West.
“I am interested in doing Hollywood films. I am ready to explore... working in the West. I couldn’t do Fast and Furious.. I am glad I chose to do Ram Leela promotions,” Deepika said. She was speaking about her journey in Bollywood at a Mumbai event.
“If something interesting comes up I will take up. Here we are subject to shelf life... keeps arising... times have changed. There it is not like that,” the 29-year-old actor said.
The Chennai Express star is happy with the way her career has shaped up and insists success has not changed her as a person. “I have not changed ... my family would speak about it. I do wash dishes at home...I did last last night. My parents ...school friends are supportive and encouraging,” Deepika said.
“They have not stopped their lifestyle... they continue doing their work and they do know I am going to do my work. Father would lock me up if I change,” she said.
Her rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh in an audio visual message expressed happiness over the success Deepika has achieved in her career till now. He even went on to suggest that Deepika must do films in the West.
