Deepika Padukone wants to romance Salman Khan

Deepika Padukone is the current sensation of Bollywood. With back to back hits, she became the reigning actress of Bollywood. In a short acting period, she has worked with many noted actors and filmmakers of Bollywood but it is not known to all that the first film offer came to Deepika was from Salman Khan when she was too young. The actress debuted with Farah Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om’ and starred in many hit films but she has not yet received any good offers with Salman and looking forward to share screen with the superstar.

Speaking about her first Bollywod offer, the long legged actress said, "He offered me my first film when I was too young and I was not ready to be in front of the camera. I will always be grateful to him. Just the fact that he offered me a film was a great thing. It is taking a long time for us to come together on screen, so I think there is something special waiting for us."

 The actress, who will be seen alongside Rajnikanth in 'Kochadaiyaan', is full of praise for the south superstar.

"I worked for three days with him. I took back from him is his simplicity, humility and child like attitude on sets. Despite achieving so much success he is so excited, enthusiastic and energetic even today, this is something that is inspiring to see," she said.

Deepika feels awkward when audience appreciate her work

"I feel lucky enough to play special characters with good actors and directors...I feel awkward when people compliment me. I don't take compliments well, I don't reciprocate well," the actress said.

Deepika and Ranveer sizzling chemistry in ‘Ram Leela’ is very much talked about.

"There are various ways of telling a love story, like he (Sanjay) did with 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam', 'Devdas', and now he has come with a new love story 'Ram Leela', with a new background, new palette. Gujarat is not explored much in films, it is a new, different side of Gujarat," she said.

"The exciting part is that the film is new looking, fresh and different, it is a risk that we both (Ranveer and I) have taken... It is a new take on love story. We are nervous but excited," she said.
