Deepika Padukone Is Eager To Work With Salman Khan
Ragini Khanna • onEntertainment 9 years ago • 2 min read

Though Deepika Padukone started off her career with Shah Rukh Khan in 'Om Shanti Om', she says that she is more eager to work with Salman Khan.

"In fact we were supposed to be paired up much earlier but then a couple of films didnt quite work out. Thats sad but I am sure that in near future, we would be paired opposite each other," said the actress, who will next be seen with Farhan Akhtar in Karthik Calling Karthik.

The 23-year-old has already worked with hotshots like Akshay Kumar Chandni Chowk To China and Saif Ali Khan Love Aaj Kal and will next be seen opposite Abhishek Bachchan, Imran Khan and Neil Nitin Mukesh in Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se, Break Ke Baad and YRF`s untitled film respectively.

Meanwhile, one wonders what happened to a film called Kick which was rumoured to be featuring Salman and Deepika together. The remake of the namesake Telugu film, it was supposed to be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by AR Murugadoss of Ghajini fame.

"It is plain rumour. Reports of me working with Salman in Kick are untrue. In fact I haven`t been offered any such film", the actress said.

While Deepikas track record shows that she has been enjoying a release once every six months ever since the release ofOm Shanti Om`, the frequency is all set to increase in the coming months.

Soon after Karthik Calling Karthik (February), Deepika would be seen in Housefull (April). Either Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se or her film with Neil Nitin Mukesh would be her next release thereafter. Incidentally, both the films are being shot at a brisk pace.

With so much work happening and no play, isnt she worried of burn out? Doesnt she fear getting all tired and worn out with so much work happening month after month?

"Honestly, I don`t look at working in films as a job. I really enjoy performing and what I do is something that gives me maximum pleasure and satisfaction. I am better off facing the camera", smiles Deepika.

"In any case, I am taken well care of both on and off the sets. I feel comfortable and secure and there are no complaints whatsoever," she said.
