Highlight of Housefull is not the bikini, Deepika
Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone will be seen strutting her stuff on an Italian beach with her co-stars Lara Dutta, Jiah Khan, Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh in Housefull, however Deepika feels that there is more to the film than just bikinis. "When you are shooting on a beach in Italy, you have to look sexy. However, the highlight of the film is not the bikini here. I remember people making a big deal about Priyanka (Chopra) wearing a swimsuit in 'Dostana' but we know that the film was a lot more than that," said Deepika.
Deepika paired up once again with Akshay a year after Chandni Chowk To China
"All the advertising is fine as long as everyone related to the film is aware about the real intent. On the same lines in Housefull too, we girls appear in bikinis for a while but the film moves on. The focus is not skin show. But then when some people think so, it takes away the credibility of the director," Deepika added.
"It was the requirement of the film to concentrate a little harder on the styling and look departments. This is one film where I could wear bright colours, look glamorous and don fancy hairstyles. Moreover, there is also an overall change in my look that comes in when you compare the first half of the film with the second half," Deepika explained.
"In the first half, since I am in Italy, the look is all beachy and colourful. On the other hand in the second half when the film shifts to London, I am far more girly and feminine. You would see a lot of subtle colours and pastel shades." Deepika revealed.
