Imtiaz Ali observed Veronica inside Deepika
Shanti of ‘Om shanti Om’ Deepika Padukone is gaining lot of admiration for her ‘bindaas’ Avatar in Homi Adajania’s "Cocktail". The spectators feel that the ‘Veronica’ has surpassed her archive roles played in ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and ‘Break ke Baad’. But Deepika admits that it was Imtiaz Ali who found Veronica inside her and suggested the role.
Well earlier, both the roles, including the one played by Diana, were offered to Deepika. But Imtiaz advised her to play Veronica. Also way back during the shooting of ‘Love aaj Kal’, Imtiaz said that he saw Veronica in her.
The Veronica is a super confident girl who displays her attitude. She is friendly, passionate and lives her life the way she wants to and not the way society expects her to.
Beside Deepika Padukone, “Cocktail” also stars Model Diana Penty and Saif Ali Khan in the lead role. The flick is slated to release on 13th of July.
