When it comes to success secrets, Kabhi Aar Kabhi Paar babe Deepal Shaw has a strange way of reaching the top.

When Deepal takes up any new assignment, she falls sick. Now, we are not talking about love or work fever, but it's about physical illness. It may sound strange but it's true. She takes her sickness as a good omen!

"I am a little superstitious about falling sick because it has worked on many occasions. During the shooting of my music video Kabhi Aaar Kabhi Paar, I was suffering from high fever. I didn't want to relent and I continued shooting. Even with high temperature, I shot the whole album. Of course, my director made sure that a doctor was on the sets to keep a check on my health. And the result is right in front of everyone. When the album released, it turned out to be a huge success," says Deepal.

She further adds, "Second time it happened when I was shooting for 'Kalyug'. I fell sick and had to call a doctor on location. I took medicine but continued to shoot. And before the film was released I had again premonition about the success of the film. And we all know that this film lived up to everyone's expectations. So, I think falling sick during the project is lucky for me. It has worked on earlier occasions as well."

Asked if she has fallen sick during the shooting of the forthcoming crossover venture Karma, Confession and Holi, she says, "I did have to through a little bit of physical ailment in between the shoot, so I think it must be another good omen for my film."

Revealing a little more about her role in the film, Deepal says, "I play the role of Preeti who is totally opposite to the character of Annie in Kalyug. I am playing a girl who intrudes into others' privacy. Robert De Niro's daughter has produced this film. I was quite excited because known names like Sushmita Sen and Naomi Campbell were my co-stars."
