Bollywood beauty Deepika Padukone’s performance in Cocktail earned her some positive reviews. And now, the leggy star will resume shooting for filmmaker Ayan Mukerji’s rom-com, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, where she’s paired with former boyfriend, actor Ranbir Kapoor.

However, the 26-year-old plans to take time off from the film’s shoot to make a quick visit to London for the Olympics Games, that commence this month. “It gives me gooseflesh when I think of the Games because sports have been a part of my life. I’ve played badminton at state level, and I know how our sporting heroes must feel right now,” says Deepika, who shot a video to encourage sportspersons representing the country.

The actor adds, “My dates have been allotted to the movie, but if I request Ayan, he may just let me go. I don’t mind even if it’s for a day.”
