Deepika was in limelight when she debuted in Hollywood. She already wrapped up the shoot for XXX: The Return Cage and now she is back in India. In a recent interview with Deccan Chronicle she was asked about her competitor Priyanka who has been successful and still going strong. But for Deepika, Aishwarya is the first lady who must be known. She said,"She, for me, is the torch bearer for putting India on the global map. But everyone who has managed to break through into the western market — whether it is Anil, Irfan, Priyanka, or myself — I think we have all done a great job.” She added,"We got this opportunity at a time when all of us are working towards breaking stereotypes. We are all focused on being part of good content, and to be cast in films based on our talent and not because of the colour of our skin.”
Deepika will be seen next in Padmavati with Ranveer Singh.
