Deepika Padukone preferred sports and drama in her childhood

Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone has won hearts of many with her acting skills, but she has revealed that as a child she was more interested in sports. “In school I was always interested in extra-curricular activities.

The Piku actress feels the children today are quite confident and talented. “I remember when we were kids we were not as confident (as kids of today) and did not have (so many) opportunities. Today kids have lot of opportunities and they are extremely confident. It’s nice to see their talent being appreciated,” she said.

Meanwhile, Deepika is busy working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati” in which she will be seen alongside Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
