Recently, Deepika waa in a conversation in the Sunday episode of National Geographic’s Mega Icons Season 2. She recalled her first meeting with Shah Rukh Khan there.
She said, “I was blown away by the fact that I was even meeting Farah Khan. The first time she called me I was like, ‘this can’t be true and maybe someone is playing a prank on me’. I don’t think I realised the intensity and gravity of it at that point. Then I remember the first time I had to actually go and meet Shah Rukh. I had seen him in all these Yash Chopra films so I was like ‘I have to go with my hair open, straight and have to wear a white salwar kameez’. I went and bought a white salwar kameez because I thought that is how I should look. He had white sofas and I was sitting on the edge of the seat with back straight. He walked out and I remember just being so comfortable with him.”
There’s also buzz that Deepika will be joining Shah Rukh and John Abraham in Yash Raj Films’ Pathan.
