Crazy over Deepal
From beggars to criminals, she has unusual admirers.india Updated: Jul 05, 2006 09:45 IST
This item bomb has a strange array of admirers. It must be a sense of great delight for Deepal Shaw to know that people who beg to live too figure in her fan list!
The sultry siren realized this during one of her outings in Mumbai. Recollects Deepal, "I have my fans all over the place but what was very strange and satisfying to see was one of the beggars on the street recognizing me. It happened during my leisure drive. I stopped my car at the roadside and noticed that someone is looking at me. Before I could make out that he was a beggar he smiled at me as if he knows me very well.
I could read his face and know that he recognized me, that I am the one who shot to fame with Rangeela Re and continued the journey on the success map of glam world. I too replied in the same coin by smiling back as I drove away."The seductress had had several interesting encounters with fans but she feels this has been the most memorable one. "Can you imagine a beggar recognizing a rising star like me? It's one the biggest compliments for me I believe," she quips.
It may be so because Deepal has a soft spot for the needy. She had once managed sometime from her busy schedule to meet the inmates of Byculla Jail and enjoyed her time with them. "Those who are sufferers and poor always have a place in my heart. I went to meet the inmates just because I felt for them. I remained the whole day with them. I tried to mix up with them so that they believe that I am like a common girl for them and not a star," states Shaw.
