Mumbai, December 24 – After acting with popular actors like Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone now wants to work with other superstars – Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan.
“Every year I am asked this question (which Bollywood actor I would like to work with now), but I hope in the next one or two years I will get to work with Hrithik, Salman and Aamir,” Deepika, who has given four back-to-back hits this year, told reporters here at her success party.
“Till now I have not worked with these actors (Aamir, Salman and Hrithik),” she added.
There are reports that Deepika has been roped in opposite Salman in Sooraj Barjatya’s next, but Deepika denied and said: “That’s not true and I have not officially met Sooraj ji.”
It’s not just Deepika who is eager to work with Salman. In fact, the “Bigg Boss” host has also expressed his desire to work with the actress and has been seen praising her on many occasions. Deepika said it feels great.
“Definitely it feels great when Salman says such good things about me because if you all know he was the one who first noticed me,” said Deepika, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh in 2007 film “Om Shanti Om”.
“I was doing an ad with his friends in Rajasthan. So, he noticed me first of all and he was the one who offered me my first film,” she recalled.
Deepika, during her modelling days, had got an acting offer from Salman before she was chosen for Shah Rukh-starrer “Om Shanti Om”. However, the actress denied Salman’s offer as she felt she was not ready to face the camera.
Currently, Deepika has films like “Happy New Year”, “Finding Fanny Fernandes” and Imtiaz Ali’s untitled film in her kitty.
