'I don't consider myself a celebrity', Deepika
To work under a big banner and with big star in the first break is a credit in itself. She worked with stars like Shahrukh Khan and Akshay Kumar and big banner like Yash Raj, even after possessing so much glory, she remained grounded and she did not allow proudness to take shelter on her.
"I don't consider myself a celebrity. I believe that I've had a fantastic upbringing and I believe my parents have kept me really grounded and rooted. I hope that success never gets to me," said Deepika whose 'Chandni Chowk To China' has just hit the screens.
"I've seen my father (badminton champion Prakash Padukone) handle success really well and I hope I continue in the same way because I believe that fame and money are secondary things. The main thing is to enjoy your work," she added.
She is currently shooting for Saif's home production directed by Imtiaz Ali.
