RAM LEELA has released and turned out to be fifth success in a row for Deepika Padukone. Moreover, the kind of appreciation that has come in for Deepika is universal, something which is becoming a trend of sorts for her since COCKTAIL.

One can well believe that she is pretty much getting used to a continued successful run over last so many months.

"But then there was also a phase when my films were not doing well," sighs Deepika, "I am fortunate that I was never written off. People had faith in me and they stood by every decision of mine. That gives you a different kind of inner strength to go out there and keep working. For me it has been a great year already but somewhere deep down I was hoping that it ends on a good note. However to have such a high as RAM LEELA? Well, that is something great."

From OM SHANTI OM to RAM LEELA, she has demonstrated a consistent run too.

"It is important to keep the focus because in this industry, it is so easy to get swayed. It is easy to get dejected when your films are not going your way or hit the roof when they start turning out to be blockbusters. However success or failure, it is so important not to latch on them but instead move on to your next. This is what I am going to do with shooting for HAPPY NEW YEAR already on. I have moved on," says Deepika in a matter of fact tone.

While Deepika may be moving on to her next project, one waits to see if makers of her film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Kishore Lulla, have more projects designed for her already in months to come. Now that could well be an icing on the cake for the leggy actress.

Putting an end to all speculations, now it is confirmed that Deepika Padukone will be paired opposite Shahrukh Khan in his next home production HAPPY NEW YEAR. The film is directed by Farah Khan.

It was believed that Katrina Kaif was the first choice for the film, but due date problems she couldn't make it. Reportedly the actress has recently signed two film- Kabir Khan's next with Saif Ali Khan and Abhishek Kapoor's next opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.

For Deepika Padukone is like coming back to home, the actress who made her grand debut with Farah Khan's OM SHANTI OM and more than half a decade after her debut film, Deepika Padukone is pairing up with Shahrukh Khan again in CHENNAI EXPRESS.

As per the latest buzz, the film required SRK's heroine to speak fluent Marathi and probably, Katrina would have needed a long period of intense speech practice to sound like a prefect Marathi girl.

Katrina Kaif is currently busy shooting for her upcoming films DHOOM3 and BANG BANG, which will release later next year.

Well Katrina's loss is Deepika's gain!

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone feels that the body type of Indian woman is 'somehow' not suited for a bikini. She said Indian woman has to work a bit harder to look ravishing in the costume.

"I wish wearing a bikini was so easy," Deepika said during an event recently. She made the comments while unveiling the Melange Cocktail fashion collection in Mumbai on Thursday. "I think the Indian body type is somehow not suited for a bikini," she said.

"I feel we as Indians need to work a little extra on our body if we want to carry it off well," said Deepika. Pertinently, Deepika will be seen in a bikini in her upcoming film" COCKTAIL"

Deepika is playing 'Veronica' in the film that also features Saif Ali Khan and Diana Penty. Speaking on her character, she said, "I felt I was ready to play Veronica, but I needed inner confidence to be able to pull it off. It is a kind of character that can go wrong."

It is a known fact that Deepika Padukone and Neil Nitin Mukesh are thick friends for quite some time. So much so that Neil has even declared on a public platform that he and Deepika are more than just friends. However this great friendship won't necessarily lead to a professional alliance between the two for at least some time from now.

''When Neil had announced his home production PAIDAAR a few months back, it was Deepika's name that had emerged as the leading lady. The film is going be an all-around Neil show since he has not just written the film's script but would also be composing music along with producing and acting in it. There were all the right reasons to believe that Deepika would indeed do the film due to her friendship with Neil ever since the days of LAFANGEY PARINDEY. However with no further confirmation coming from either of the two, it seems like there would be a change in plans for Neil,'' says a source.

A romantic thriller with revenge at the core of it, PAIDAAR (an Urdu word that stands for eternal) was supposed to be directed by Rohit Jugraj, a key member in the writing team of PLAYERS which features Neil in a prominent role. One expected that as PLAYERS would come closer to release, Neil and Rohit would divulge further plans around PAIDAAR, especially the leading lady. However as things stand today, neither is Deepika a part of it, nor is the film going on floors anytime soon.

Says Neil, ''Neither Deepika nor any other actress has been approached for the film. We are still developing PAIDAAR so there is no question of any casting being finalised. The film still needs more time on scripting. Though it is pakka that I would be acting in it, no one else has been confirmed so far, whether it is the other actors or the director.''

When contacted, even Deepika denied doing the film. She said, ''I haven't been offered PAIDAAR so where is the questioning of me saying 'yes' or 'no' to it.''

Deepika Padukone has had enough of playing non-glam part in a series of films. So when Prakash Jha, Ashutosh Gowariker and Pradeep Sarkar asked her to turn plain Jane for their respective films, Deepika didn't protest and willingly stepped into plain suit-salwars, sarees and T-shirts respectively while also keeping her make-up minimal. Even in BREAK KE BAAD which was set in Mauritius, director Danish Aslam wanted her to play the girl next door which means designer outfits were out of question.

However none of that would be the case in DESI BOYZ where Deepika would be back at being her glamorous best. After consciously staying away from that make-up kit for her AARAKSHAN, KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY and LAFANGEY PARINDEY, Deepika has sent an SOS to her styling team and made sure that she comes across as an ultra glam personality in her winter release DESI BOYZ.

"Deepika is doing everything possible to stand out in the Akshay Kumar and John Abraham starrer," her friend continues, "Since the film is set in London, Deepika doesn't want to look out of place. Also, the film belongs to a genre that is quintessentially commercial and cool on eyes. During the shooting of her film, she summoned her stylist, costume designer, make-up staff and hair dressers to give her an ultra glam look. She also hit the gym hard to look in best shape and make heads turn. She knows that before this year comes to close; DESI BOYZ is one film that would present her in an altogether different light."

Deepika too admits that for DESI BOYZ she has gone through a definite make-over. "DESI BOYZ requires me to play glamorous and I have done whatever possible to make sure that I look my best," says Deepika who would next be seen in AARAKSHAN before she sizzles again in DESI BOYZ this winter.

The local authorities demolished a major set of Prakash Jha's upcoming film "AARAKSHAN"in Bhopal. The demolition was ordered by the District Magistrate's office. Patchwork scenes with Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan were scheduled to be shot on the set later this month.

Prakash Jha Productions had taken land on lease from the Minal Residency Group, not realizing that it was disputed property.

From end-January till end of March shooting continued on the constructed set.

The set that has been demolished included an entire bungalow that belongs to the character played by Mr. Amitabh Bachhan in the film and parts of the tabela, where informal schools were set up in the film. This particular set was spread over an acre and a half of land.

Prakash Jha, "We had no idea that the land where we had constructed was disputed. But I do feel that even though the demolition had to go through, the authorities knew we had constructed only temporary structures for the purpose of shooting. Why demolish it? It would have been dismantled within a month. Everyone in Bhopal knew it was a set. The demolition has definitely upset our plans. The reason we had left the set standing was because there were a couple of patchwork scenes with Saif and Deepika that remained to be shot. Now we have to work out alternative arrangements."

ADM Bhopal, Mr. Rajnish Shrivastava, "It was an illegal structure, so it was demolished. The High Court had directed us to demolish the structure. We did what we were supposed to, because the construction on that area was not legal."

Lovers across the world must be eagerly waiting for Valentine’s Day to make their loved ones feel special but Bollywood celebrities, who entertain the public with romantic films, are in no mood to celebrate. Many will be working on the day while others think that it is a vogue idea to have such a day.

Shahrukh khan, the king of romance, said that he would be celebrating Valentine’s Day in jail, as he would be shooting for a film in jail on the day. Aamir Khan will spend the day in Berlin, as he is one of the jury members for the Berlin film festival. Deepika Padukone will be busy shooting for Aarakshan in Bhopal on the day and Katrina Kaif too will work like any other day.

There is also a bunch of them who thinks that there is no point celebrating Valentine’s Day. Priyanka Chopra said that one doesn’t have to wait for a single day to express one’s love. Actor Arshad Warsi also echoed in the same vain, saying that everyday is Valentine’s Day for him, as he has to make his wife happy everyday. Kareena Kapoor too has no plans for the day and wouldn’t gift anything to anyone.

Well, it looks like Valentine’s Day will be dull in Bollywood. But who knows if they secretly have good time with their loved ones or send bunch of goodies even if they can’t celebrate together!

Bollywood Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh had to kiss Bollywood Actress Deepika Padukone on screen for their forthcoming bollywood film Lafange Parindey and the actor reportedly got cold feet. Not because he’s a virgin screen-kisser and, well, Deepika Padukone has the experience of kissing Saif Ali Khan before camera for the movie Love Aaj Kal… but, apparently, because Neil’s had a no-kiss policy in all his films so far.

His first director Sriram Raghavan had thrown a fit when Neil refused to kiss Rimi Sen. In his second film, Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, director Sudhir Mishra insisted Neil kiss Shahana Goswami. But the actor refused. Even in Jail where there was a love-making scene with Mughda Godse, Neil refused to kiss the sultry actress. But Lafange Parindey director Pradeep Sarkar pulled the plug on Neil’s chastity vow. A source from the set said it was a long, torrid smooch comparable in intensity and duration to the Aamir Khan-Karisma Kapoor kiss in Raja Hindustani. And Neil was nervous!
