‘Enough’ could well be the call for Deepika Padukone after her deglam roles in the likes of Aarakshan and Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey. The young woman has now made up her mind that it is going to some serious glam outings for her henceforth. It all started with Desi Boyz and now for Race 2, Deepika is going all out to be presented in a way like never before.
“In Aarakshan and Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Deepika was seen in those salwar-kameez and cotton sarees. Fair enough but then she is known for her glam image and it would be terrific if she keeps that on the forefront. Her advisors from within and outside the industry also feel that she needs to let the glamorous side of her do all the talking”, says a close associate of the actor.
Desi Boyz was pretty much a reiteration of what Deepika had been hearing all along, what with everyone pointing out her great looks and the way she carried herself with the Western outfits. It was a conventional part in an all-boys tale but the positive feedback that came her way for the glam quotient that she exuded on screen was nothing short of an eye opener.
“Yes, and now for Race 2 she has decided to go the whole hog. Moreover she is in safe hands of Abbas-Mustan who have a way with women when presenting them stylishly”, says a source, “Look at Bipasha Basu; she has looked her best in Race 2, Ajnabee and now Players. Katrina Kaif too looked her seductive best in ‘Zara Zara Touch Me‘ (Race) and now it is time for Deepika to let her body beautiful do the talking. In any case with Bipasha Basu expected to exude oomph in Race 2, she has to give her a healthy competition.”
When contacted, Deepika confirmed that it would be a total look-n-style change for her with Race 2, “Yes, Abbas Mustan are giving so much attention to the way I would look in the film. Right from clothes and make up to facial expressions and camera angles, everything has been given a lot of thought. In any case their films are very stylised and as an actor you are bound to be presented like never before.”
On a parting note, she adds, “Apart from Farah (Khan) who had paid so much attention to every aspect of me, Abbas Mustan are the only ones who are doing that. The way I would be presented in Race 2 would be the most glamorous after Om Shanti Om.”
We trust you on that lady!
