MUMBAI— Says Alia Bhatt, the upcoming-in-early-‘90s Kajol of today, “Deepika Padukone as Padmavati is so fabulous!” Padukone, of course, can be called the Madhuri Dixit of today.
Bhatt is all praise for Padukone’s fabulous portrayal in the film's trailer that has just released. In a recent podcast of which she was a part, the actress couldn’t stop praising Padukone. “I’ve not seen the performance yet but I saw the trailer, I think Deepika as Padmavati was just so fabulous, and she just looked like so fabulous and I know I can never look like that or act like that! She looks just like a queen. I told her, ‘You are so lovely and so inspiring!’ and I just know she is going to nail it in that film.”
It is so refreshing to hear a junior praising a senior when both are at the top of their respective age groups. Confidence and security only come with humongous talent.
