Following her show’s success, TV actor Deepika Singh is actually being treated like a police officer in real life.

“I now have a huge responsibility on my shoulders,”  says the actor when asked if she was going to vote.

Deepika became popular among her fans for portraying Sandhya on a TV show. This character has brought her a lot of love from her fans. Interestingly, she is now greeted with salutes.

“Wherever I go, my fans come and salute me. It is flattering and gives me immense pride,” she says.

All the saluting is happening because Deepika plays the role of a married woman who conquers all challenges to become an IPS officer. “Reel life has a great influence on real life,” she says.

And this has not only influenced her fans, but even Deepika herself. “Perhaps it’s influenced my real life. Now, I feel that I have a huge responsibility on my shoulders of living up to my onscreen image and doing my part in building the nation’s life,” she says.

The actor shared that after finishing a night-long shoot, the first thing she did was hitting the polling booth to cast her vote. “Like every responsible citizen, I, too, wanted to contribute to the development of our nation,” she says.
