Katrina Kaif is not a showpiece: Deepika Padukone defends ex beau’s alleged girlfriend
In a recent interaction with the media, when a reporter asked Deepika Padukone if her role in Happy New Year was ‘a showpiece role’ much on the lines of what Katrina Kaif played in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Deepika took an exception to Katrina being referred to as a ‘showpiece’.
“According to her (Katrina) she has worked very hard, no? Then how can you call her a showpiece,” Deepika counter-questioned.
Deepika wasn’t taking a satirical potshot at her ex-boyfriend’s alleged girlfriend, but defending her.
“I am just saying that the hard work and effort is still the same, whatever the role. Being a heroine is not easy, let me tell you that. It looks very glamorous and a great life but it is lot of hard work. Secondly, I don’t think I can comment on other people’s choice of films or other people’s choice of roles. Some things may appeal to me, some things may not. So I can only speak for the films that I have done,” Deepika said.
Deepika Padukone is often pitted opposite Katrina Kaif because she happens to be the ex-girlfriend of Ranbir Kapoor who is presently said to be dating Katrina.
There have been occasions in the past when Deepika has commented about Katrina. Check them out below:
