Deepika Padukone, 29, made her Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Om Shanti Om” and went on to work with him in “Chennai Express” and last year’s Diwali release “Happy New Year”.
“I think there is a very pure equation that we share. More than anything, I think we miss each other. I miss being a part of some of the films he has done off late and I miss being around him on set,” Deepika told reporters at the poster launch of Mastani from her upcoming “Bajirao Mastani”.
The Sanjay Leela Bhansali- directed period-drama, which also stars Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra, will clash with Shah Rukh-Kajol starrer “Dilwale” on December 18.
Recently, Shah Rukh had said that Deepika was his lucky charm and wished some of her luck rubs on him too for his upcoming release “Dilwale”.
When asked about this, the “Piku” star said, “That’s him being kind and very, very generous that he always is. When ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Chennai Express’ did well he has in more ways than one given me the credit for that. He is someone who is very fond of me as I am of him.”
Deepika, however, is unfazed of the clash and is confident that the Rohit Shetty-directed film is going to be “massive.”
“I am sure ‘Dilwale’ is going to be a massive film. It has amazingly talented people in it, who have worked equally hard the way we have worked in our film. If the film does well, I don’t think it has to do anything with my luck, it is because of their talent and hard work.”
