Deepika Padukone on Balancing Big-Budget Blockbusters and Indie Gems

Deepika Padukone offered perspectives on her strategy for collaborating on varied projects. She discussed the juxtaposition between high-budget blockbusters like “Fighter” and lower-budget movies such as “Piku” and “Chhapaak.”

In a recent press interaction regarding the release of the film “Fighter,” helmed by Siddharth Anand and starring Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, and Anil Kapoor in an aerial action extravaganza, Deepika Padukone shared insights into her approach to collaborating on diverse projects.
Deepika discussed the disparity between high-budget blockbusters like “Fighter” and lower-budget productions such as “Piku” and “Chhapaak.” She expressed her readiness to engage in projects of varying scales, stating, “I am more than willing to do that, and I’ve demonstrated it by doing so before the pandemic.
Underlining her multifaceted acting choices, Deepika underscored her dedication to storytelling over the magnitude of the project. She reflected on her career, mentioning films like “Finding Fanny,” “Chhapaak,” and “Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey,” stating, “I’ve always been that performer. Long before I’ve starred in films like – they didn’t perform well, so they’ve been forgotten – Finding Fanny, Chhapaak, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey; there are numerous such movies. So, as an actor, I’m most enthused about narrating stories, whether it happens to be a Rs 500 crore budget film or a Rs 50 crore; I’ve never focused on that. I am intrigued by telling a tale.”
