Rajinikanth very humble, passionate: Deepika Padukone


Actress Deepika Padukone considers herself lucky for getting a chance to work with Superstar Rajinikanth in ‘Kochadaiyaan’ and she says, she hasn’t seen more humble and passionate person than Rajinikanth.

“I’ve finished shooting with Rajnikanth. Different people praise him in different ways. But I feel one will truly realize what he is, only if you meet him. He is extremely humble and passionate about his work. I’ve never seen a person as passionate as him about work,” Deepika said.

“I definitely consider myself lucky to get an opportunity to work with him,” she added. ‘Kochadaiyaan’, a Tamil period film directed by Rajini’s younger daughter Soundarya R Ashwin is currently in its post production.

As of now Deepika says she has no new southern project on mind at least for the next six months, but she believes “actresses have enough scope to prove themselves down south”. The actress says her journey in showbiz has been great so far.

“Sometimes I feel it was like a dream come true but I have really worked hard to be where I am today. I am happy with the kind of films that are lined up for me,” concluded Deepika Padukone, who made her Bollywood debut with Sharukh Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om’ in 2007.
