Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone got the surprise of her life when she was asked for a coffee date by none other than veteran actor Shammi Kapoor on Twitter.
Twitter is a favourite haunt of Bollywood celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Rampal, Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra and Karan Johar but Deepika said she did not know that Kapoor had also joined twitter. The actress is now planning to meet the 78-year-old star.
"I've met Shammiji a couple of times and always felt this warmth towards him and I can feel the same from him. Even his wife has been very nice to me. Apparently he was tweeting me and I didn't even imagine that Shammiji would be on Twitter. But that happened just before I came here so when I go back I'll have my coffee date with him," Deepika said in an interview.
The 24-year-old actress is currently in Delhi to shoot her film Break Ke Baad with debutante filmmaker Danish. Produced by Kunal Kohli of Hum Tum fame, the film sees her opposite Imran Khan.
Meanwhile, Deepika is awaiting the release of her upcoming film Houseful. She has tried her hands at comedy for the first time in the Sajid Khan directed movie.
"Comedy is one of the most difficult genres for an actor because I think comedy is all about timing and spontaneity. But its been great fun and I am really happy that I worked with Sajid and Akshay who are brilliant when it comes to comedy," said Deepika.
