Deepika Padukone on opting for a role or a movie

Recently, Deepika Padukone in conversation with a leading daily talked about her roles and her perspective towards choosing a movie. The actor was keen enough to firmly speak that she follows her gut and heart. Deepika mentioned that if she feels butterflies in her stomach after reading the script, she totally prefers to opt for that role. She added that the film should unsettle her. She further added that for many, she only takes up thrilling roles but that's not so. She said that a feel-good buddy drama would also satisfy her if she likes the script. In the context of her character in the movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, she said that she opted for the movie because she had never played any character like Naina. Deepika Padukone also mentioned that the character should make her feel challenged and she always listens to the voice in her head while choosing a role.
