Sridevi who was recently at the cover launch of a magazine was told about Deepika bagging one of the first awards this year for the best actress in romantic role for Cocktail. Sridevi on hearing this said “In my opinion, Deepika is one of the most promising actresses. I really like her performances and choice of roles. I would like to congratulate her and wish her all the very best.”
Deepika on hearing the compliment was heard gushing, “It is a huge compliment. She (Sridevi) is someone I have admired. I have grown up watching her films. It is nice to know she likes my work.”
And it seems Deepika, who has been Sridevi’s fan since childhood, has taken the praise at face-value as she is reportedly doing thorough research for her forthcoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.
