Actress Deepika Padukone does not regret being unable to make her Hollywood debut with 'Fast and Furious 7' and says she is open to doing films in the West even if the role is small.

Deepika Padukone was offered to be a part of 'Fast and Furious 7' movie, but she could not do it because of her commitments to the makers of 'Ram-Leela'.

"I don't regret it. I had to work out things for 'Ram-Leela' here, I couldn't have left the process mid way, I had given my commitment here first. Looking at the way the film ('Ram-Leela') has got response, I feel good as my hard work has paid off," Deepika Padukone told PTI in an interview.

Though the actress could not make her entry into Hollywood, she is still open to doing films whenever the right offer comes up.

"I would love to do a Hollywood film. The reason for me to do a Hollywood film is same as what I do here in Bollywood," she said.

When asked if she would be ok doing a small role in a Hollywood film, Deepika Padukone said, "There is nothing like a small role. The role has to be of impact, this is what matters, the length of it (role) doesn't. A good actor can make a presence felt even in a short time."

Deepika is basking in the success of her fourth consecutive hit this year - 'Ram-Leela' - after 'Race 2', 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' and 'Chennai Express'.

"It feels nice that all my films that released this year did really well. I have worked hard on all my films and it feels great when the films become successful and you get

appreciation for your work," she said.

"But if I had my way, I would have not let them release so close to each other, I would have spaced them out," she pointed out.
