Despite being neck-deep in the promotions of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram-Leela’, Deepika Padukone is all smiles. “The success of the film is going to be my Diwali and New Year bonus,” says a confident Deepika adding, “I play Leela, and that is SLB’s mother’s name. I hope I am able to live up to the faith he has shown in me.”

The actress Deepika who has had a string of hits recently, is very modest when asked about her success mantra. “I owe a lot to Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan. But I’d like to take a chunk of the credit too. I guess I am blessed with the ability to chose the right films,” she says.

The latest buzz in B’town is that Salman Khan has considered Deepika for one of his upcoming films. If that works out, Dippy’s dream of working with Salman Khan will finally come true.
