Deepika PadukoneBollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who is blessed with a good figure, says she does not believe in being size zero as the Indian body type is not meant for it.

"Correct me if I am wrong, but I personally feel that the Indian body type is not cut out to be size zero. I am not size zero and I don't believe in that either," Deepika said. "I believe that it's nice to be little full and have a nice shape," she added.

The Bollywood actress was the show stopper for designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil's show at the Lakme Fashion Week recently.

According to Deepika, an actress gets a role for her performance and not the body type.

"In the (film) industry, body size doesn't matter. What matters is how much an actor contributes through his performance and not his body size," explained Deepika.

"It is important that every person should wear clothes that go with their body - the cut, the fabric make a lot of difference," she added.
