Whistle stop : Desi girl
She was appreciated for her role as the sexy diva with a golden heart in Homi Adajania's Cocktail, while Diana Penty played the girl-next-door. But in one of her upcoming films, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Deepika Padukone seems to have switched sides. The actor, paired opposite her ex, Ranbir Kapoor, plays the desi girl in the film while Kalki Koechlin and newbie Evelyn Sharma play a tomboy and ditzy, feminine urban girls, respectively. Her other two big-ticket films, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela and Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express opposite Shah Rukh Khan, also see her in similar avatars. Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, directed by Kapoor's friend Ayan Mukherji of Wake Up Sid fame, follows Kapoor's character's journey as a travel show host. It begins in Mumbai and travels through Manali, Udaipur and France, before Kapoor is reunited with his lady love, Padukone.
