What happens when Deepika Padukone gets chatty? She opens up and reveals so many fun facts. Every. Single. Time. This time, Deepika spoke about her Bajirao Mastani co-star Priyanka Chopra, Dev.D actress Kalki Koechlin and Hema Malini on the sets of an upcoming talk show to be hosted by Kamal Sidhu, reported mid-day.
Reacting to the idea of a hypothetical wrestling match between herself and Priyanka, Deepika made a confession. "She's really strong," is what Deepika said, reported mid-day.
Deepika's Hollywood debut, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is scheduled to release five months ahead of Priyanka's first Hollywood film Baywatch. Deepika co-stars with Vin Diesel in the xXx film while Priyanka features as the antagonist in the Dwayne Johnson movie. xXx and Baywatch will hit screens on January 19 and May 19 respectively.
Earlier in July, Priyanka dismissed reports which suggested that their friendship has turned sour. Like a boss, she said: "You (media) said we are friends. Earlier, you all used to write we are BFFs (best friends forever) so how did this change, why and how it changed? I did not say it has changed, you said it has changed. I am clarifying that whatever was earlier it is same today also. Your perspective has changed and that shouldn't have happened".
Moving on, when Deepika was asked about a celebrity, whose intelligence she would like to inherit, she zeroed in Kalki. And of stealing, she said Maliniji's aura and supermodel Gigi Hadid's wardrobe would just be fine, reported mid-day.
Quizzed about her xXx co-star, Deepika had the most adorable things to say. "He's like a teddy bear. He's completely the opposite of what I thought he would be. I thought he would be mean, but, he is just so lovely, and warm and friendly," she said, reported mid-day.
Forbes recently named Deepika as the tenth highest paid actress in the world with earnings of $10 million. Priyanka was also ranked eighth on the list of highest paid TV actresses with earnings of $11 million by Forbes.
Deepika Padukone, 30, will soon start shooting for director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. She was last seen in Bajirao Mastani. Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra, 34, recently presented at the Emmys in Los Angeles and is currently busy filming the second season of her TV show Quantico in New York. Back home, she last appeared in Prakash Jha's Jai Gangaajal.
