Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has said acting is a more satisfactory profession than modelling.
“Acting is a lot more challenging. There are a lot more risks, lot more things at stake, and I also think, when a film does well, then there is a lot more sense of satisfaction,” Padukone said on Wednesday.
“I have signed three new films, one is a new director called Rohit Dhawan, he is David Dhawan’s son and his film is called Desi Boys with Akshay Kumar and John Abraham. So, that is one film,” said Padukone.
“The one after that is Vishal Bharadwaj’s film and the film after that is a film directed by Homi Adajania. He has made a film called Being Cyrus, and that film is being produced by Illuminati Films, the same films that produced Love Aaj Kal, and that is with Imran Khan,” she added.
Padukone is now hoping that 2010 ends on a good note for her with Break Ke Baad and Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se ready for release in the last week of November and first week of December, respectively.
Break Ke Baad is a romantic comedy starring Padukone and Imran Khan in the lead and has been directed by debutant director Danish Aslam.
On the other hand, Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se is a period film opposite Bollywood heartthrob Abhishek Bachchan, which has been directed by Ashutosh Gowariker of the Oscar-nominated Lagaan fame.
