Deepika Padukone recalls people making fun of her accent in Om Shanti Om; Says the brickbats affected her

It was back in 2007 when Deepika Padukone made her debut in Bollywood with Om Shanti Om. Well, it has been more than a decade now and the actress continues to be among the most popular divas of B-town. However, her journey in Hindi Cinema was not a bed of roses. Though the Shah Rukh Khan co-starrer was termed a blockbuster, Deepika received heavy criticism from many as has been revealed by her in an interview with India Today. 

The actress who entered the film industry at the mere age of 19 called it daunting to do the same while adding that she was raw and unaware. At the same time, she also expressed her gratitude towards Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan for guiding her through the process. Meanwhile, Deepika also talked about how a section of people criticized her over the fact that she was a model and hence, cannot act. Not only that but they reportedly also made fun of her accent.

While adding that a lot was written about her craft, the actress stated that it was extremely hurtful and that the brickbats affected her. However, she did not forget to mention that criticism fuels her to work harder and improve her skills and personal evolution. Deepika Padukone, who was last seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak, further added that failure taught her a lot and that she had never been bitter about the experiences. Meanwhile, the actress will reunite with husband Ranveer Singh for the sports drama ’83. Apart from that, she will also feature in Pathan alongside Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham. Deepika will collaborate with Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi for Shakun Batra’s next.

Deepika is all about victim PR, she can never be real.

Anonymous : Thanks so much for pointing out. Despite being a south Indian herself, she caricatured and mocked Tamilians for money to entertain the ignorant north indian crowds who paid to enjoy her inaccurate, insensitive portrayal of a Tamil woman. Now she complains she was mocked for her accent. Tamilians don't speak Hindi, nor do we say "bokwaas dictionary" like the caricature she portrays. Deepika is a hypocrite who needs to reflect on her own actions.
