Farah Khan and Deepika Padukone share a very special bond. The former gave the latter her big Bollywood break with Om Shanti Om, and has been her mentor since day 1. Deepika even lovingly calls her ‘Maa‘, and Farah on the other hand, looks out for her and surprises her with some goodies every now and then.
Farah has seen her grow from strength to strength over the years and obviously has a lot to say about her journey as she worked with her in two very different phases of her career. In a conversation with Neha Dhupia on her show #NoFilterNeha, Farah spoke about what a fabulous actor DP has become.
She got confidence in her acting abilities because after ‘Om Shanti Om’, she did various movies and I would look at the movies and think why is she wasting herself doing these movies and she’s worthy of a lot more. Till “Cocktail” came and suddenly I was like ‘Oh, Okay!’
How sweet! What a long way the two of them have come.
