Deepika Padukone, who was last seen in Padmaavat, was the talk of the town since when she spoke about her marriage, her hubby and her upcoming movie Chhapaak. The actress was seen at the 21st Edition of Jio MAMI Mumbai International Film Festival on October 13, 2019. She was the Chairperson of the Annual International Film Festival. DP looked stunning in a black-and-blue polka dot dress that she wore designed by Marmar Halim. At MAMI, the actress spoke about the different roles that she has played in her movies.

When Deepika was asked about the total number of films that she has done so far, the Cocktail actress said that she has never really worked towards keeping a count on the number of films she has done, but more about connecting with the work she has done. She further said that he acting process begins with the narration. While a great narration may not necessarily translate into a great movie, it helps her to visualise the story and the character. It helps to bring out the honesty of the script.

Speaking about Cocktail movie's character Veronica, Deepika explained that she reread the script to understand why Imtiaz (Ali) thought that while she was drawn to Meera, she was actually ready for Veronica. She further added that it was Homi Adajania's sensibility toward this complex character that empowered her to play it. After a point she was spontaneous in her takes; Homi had just stopped directing her. Veronica helped Deepika shed her inhibitions both as a woman and as an actor and explore a side of her that she did not know existed.

Speaking about playing the nightmare scene from Chennai Express, Deepika said that her energy was completely off that day. She could see that Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty were not happy with her and they were wondering how to make it work. According to the actress, comedy roles are tricky, especially when there are many actors on different wavelengths. Deepika mentioned, "One can’t prepare for scenes like these. It just happens spontaneously. But at the end of the day whatever you do with conviction becomes honest".

Deepika will be next seen in Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak also starring Vikrant Massey and Kabir Khan's '83 starring Ranveer Singh
