‘Shy’ Deepika Padukone feels social media contradicts her personality
1/24‘Shy’ Deepika Padukone feels social media contradicts her personality
Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who is all set to go international next year with the release of her film ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’, stunned fans across the globe with her Paper Magazine photo shoot. Although the actress showed off a much bolder, gothic and chic side of her personality, she did admit that she was a rather ‘shy ‘ person in reality and preferred keeping her personal life private.

However, Deepika revealed that the only reason she is on social networking platforms is because she loves one-on-one interactions with her fans.
Talking about her favourite social networking site, she said, “Well I think social media is a bit contradictory to my personality. I’m someone who likes to keep things personal and private, and I’m not too comfortable with sharing my every mood and emotion. But what I appreciate about the platform is the fact that it gives me the opportunity to interact with my fans and to have that one on one direct connection with them. And if I had to really choose one platform, I think it would be Instagram because I think pictures really speak a thousand words and personally I’m someone who is very shy. I’m not someone who is very comfortable with expressing myself with words, but I like expressing myself through emotion, and I think images and photographs are a great medium for that.”

Deepika Padukone on her equation with SRK: Nothing will come in the way

Deepika Padukone, who debuted opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om, says nothing can ever change her equation with the superstar. The actress had recently posted the first look of her upcoming film Bajirao Mastani on Instagram, which will clash with SRK-Kajol starrer Dilwale at the box office this year. The hash tag she used with her post read, “#ChallengeAccepted”. The Pikustar later edited the picture and removed the hash tag, but it seems the damage was already done. According to a report in PTI, King Khan was apparently not happy with her Chennai Express co-star’s attitude. When asked about it, Dippy said, “I find it really amazing that some picture of my film with a certain hashtag… it’s amazing that some connection is found to some completely different film and it is blown out of proportion. I don’t think any of these articles will ever come in my way on my equation with Shah Rukh.” The actress said it was ironic that when people were reading about the reported miff, Shah Rukh was sending her messages congratulating her on opening her foundation in the field of mental health. “What he and I share is known to us and it is very special. Ironically, when you all were reading this article, he was messaging and congratulating me about my foundation. He was one of the first people I spoke to, while I was thinking about it. He has always been encouraging and supportive,” she said.

My team and I are working hard to set up the foundation and the logo launch is a small step in that direction,” she said. The flying birds in the logo signify this very essence of the foundation. The logo also has a baseline ‘Foundation Against Depression’ that represents its mission.
