Deepika Padukone wants to romance only Saif Ali Khan

The Cocktail actor says her co-star of three films, Saif ali Khan is still perfect for love stories

After working in movies like Love Aaj Kal and Aarakshan, actor Deepika Padukone has once again teamed with Saif Ali Khan in Cocktail. She feels the 41-year-old is one actor who fits romantic roles perfectly even after so many years in the film industry. “In spite of him (Saif) having worked so much, he is still someone who fits these young love stories and romantic characters,” said Deepika.

Cocktail, directed by Homi Adajania, revolves around the lives of three friends – Veronica, Gautam and Meera, played by Deepika, Saif and newcomer Diana Penty, respectively. Deepika, who will be seen as a confident and fun-loving girl in the film, says the character was challenging and she needed inner confidence to play it. “I remember I was in Mauritius two years ago when I got the script. I felt that I was ready to play Veronica. I knew I needed inner confidence to be able to pull it off because the character could go wrong in many ways,” she said.

Explaining the background of her character, she said: “Veronica is feisty, but not a rebel. She has grown up in a broken family, so she has not got the conventional love of parents while growing up. So she likes to be surrounded by people probably to get her mind off other things.”

Cocktail is releasing Friday, July 13.
