An interview with Deepika Padukone on 'Aarakshan'
Can you tell us about the film and the character you play?
The film is based on one if the most controversial policies of casteism and reservation system in government and the education system in India. Amitabh Bachchan plays the legendary and idealistic college principal and he has single handedly turned his college into the state’s best.
I play the role of Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter, Poorbie Anand, who is also Saif Ali Khan’s love interest in the film. Poorbi’s personality and persona is shaped by the relationships in her life – her daughter, a girlfriend, a friend and a student. In essence, the film is about the impact that the issue of reservation has on a multitude of relationships and how this tests each of them.
What was it like working with Mr Bachchan for the first time?
And what about working with Saif Ali Khan for the second time?
What attracted you to the film?
Who will the film appeal to?
