Deepika Padukone has been on a dream ride and worked with some true gentlemen ever since she stepped into tinsel town. Her first co-star Shahrukh Khan is known for his impeccable manners.
Ranbir Kapoor of course is the most important man in her life, perhaps after her champ dad. And Akshay Kumar has been very caring about her on the sets of House Full in London where Deepika is presently down with malaria. Deepika feels lucky to be surrounded by such gents.
“I'm lucky to be surrounded by gallant men. Whether it's my dad, Ranbir, Akshay, Shah Rukh Khan or any of my co-stars, I haven't so far encountered any ill-behaved men,” Deepika is quoted as saying by IANS.
Interestingly, Deepika omits the mention of Saif Ali Khan, her co-star in this Friday’s release Love Aaj Kal. It’s not that Saif isn’t gallant; just that he stayed mostly to himself on the sets of the film, giving her all the space she needed.
The movie has Saif and Deepika playing a modern day couple in London and San Francisco. Her character is a die-hard romantic, but Saif plays a man who doesn’t realize what his heart wants.
