What makes Deepika happy about Padmvati is that it is female protagonist. The movie with a poster of herself alone. Deepika said, “I am extremely proud of, is that people like them (pointing to Viacom 18 CEO Ajit Andhare) have invested money in a film like this, with a poster like this. That, for me, is hugely encouraging. If Ajit says that this is the biggest film that Indian cinema has ever seen, not just in terms of the scale but the budget, the resources… That’s a turning point in Indian cinema.”
She added further, “I have not seen something like this before. I have done female-centric films before, female-centric is not the right word… But we have seen many powerful female roles, I have done Piku but that was different. I think this (Padmavati) is the beginning of many exciting and amazing things for women in films.”
