Having only just reaped the rewards for the success of her debut Hollywood film ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ (2017), Deepika Padukone is already deep into preparing for her next role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’. Though she has’t signed any other Hollywood films however, she does state that the offers are till there.
“Nothing happening in Hollywood as yet. Would let you know for sure but yes, a lot of films coming on way and I’m happy,” The Indian Express reports the actress stating, when asked about her next big Hollywood project.
In the meantime, Padukone has recently become the brand ambassador for the camera phone company Oppo. With technology growing at such a fast pace, the actress did express how she does miss the way photo’s used to be taken before the digital medium grew. “I wish to go back to a time when people used to click picture and get them printed. These days, we do take pictures but it’s always on our device. We don’t have habit of getting them printed and make an album out of it,” she expressed.
Padukone went on to add, “What I’ve noticed these days is the moment a camera comes on front, our body language changes. For me, pictures are memories. Whether it’s my childhood picture or some picture that I accidentally come across, it flashes many memories.”

Talking about the moment in her life she wished she could have captured, the actress expressed, “I think it will be when I got my very first award. After I started modelling, I won model of the year within the year. At that time, there were no camera phones. I used to live in Bangalore and I had flown to Mumbai with my father since I was just 18-year-old. The event was at Grand Hyatt and I was so excited. ”
“We were living in a room where I had a cupboard with dresses lined up for the evening. So, when I walked into the event to receive my award, I could see my father was equally excited to see that one big moment of my life. But I wish we had such technology back then to capture that moment. It’s in my mind but I wish I had something else too,” she said.
Padukone will next be seen sharing the screen with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in ‘Padmavati’. The film has recently come under much scrutiny, where members of particular groups have been against the film being made. However, with his cast behind him, Bhansali isn’t showing any signs of giving up.
