Deepika Padukone: ‘Nothing can hamper my equation with Shah Rukh, what I share with him is special’
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Bajirao Mastani will clash with Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale this Christmas and when Bajirao's leading lady Deepika Padukone posted the first look of her film on Twitter, she used the hashtag '#challengeaccepted' and this we hear didn't go down too well with SRK. DeePee marked her Bollywood debut with Om Shanti Om opposite the King Khan and the latter has been a mentor for her. However, her tweet we hear miffed the superstar and later Deepika deleted it. At a recent event, when she was asked to comment on the whole issue, the Piku star said, "First of all I find it really amazing that some picture of my film with me, which I have put with a certain hashtag, it's amazing how some connection is found to some completely different film and completely blown out of proportion. Having said that, I don't think any of these articles will ever come in the way of my equation with Shah Rukh. What he and I share is known to us, it's very very special." "In fact ironically when probably all of you were reading that article, he messaged me to congratulate me on my foundation, whose logo I recently launched and he was actually one of the few people I spoke to, when I was thinking of setting it up and he has always been very encouraging and supporting," she concluded.
