Though she didn't elaborate what the role was, she felt the time was right. The actress had earlier turned down a role in Fast and Furious 7.
"I want to keep challenging myself and this was the time to explore something more now," Deepika said. She added: "Sometime you try everything in your capacity to make somethings work and they don't and sometimes things fall into your lap and things work around it and this was one such moment. Very, very exciting times ahead of me. I'm nervous but hope it's fun and I do well and make everyone proud."
And yes, she hasn't signed a single Hindi film in 2016 or so she says. "Once I'm back I will decide," she said.
All we can say is go girl, and make us proud.
