Very often when the shooting of a film gets over, the cast and crew are allowed to keep props from the sets and from the wardrobe. For actress Deepika Padukone, the one thing she wanted to keep from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani were the spectacle she wore.
Our sources tell us that Deepika, who maintains that her character, Naina Talwar, is very close to her real self, wants to keep the glasses she wore in the film as a souvenir.
Says Deepika, “Naina is a special character for me. The glasses helped me live that part. I’d like to keep them as a memory of her.”
A source reveals that Deepika asked Karan Johar (the film’s producer) to send her the glasses because she was emotional about the character and the glasses were an important part of it. Also, people on the set kept calling her ‘chashmish’ in an endearing manner – a term she was addressed as in the film as well.
Last we heard, a very bemused Karan Johar has directed the Dharma staff to send it to her and they are all glad that the audience embraced her bespectacled look.
