Deepika second twin act

30 Jul, 2008(INDIATIMES): Newcomer Deepika Padukone is one of the few lucky newcomers who has got to play challenging roles at the start of her career. Deepika kicked off by playing a double role in Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om . Once again she will be portraying a twin image in Nikhil Advani’s Chandani Chawk To China . But this time her roles are extremely different from each other.
 
It is believed that in the first half of the film Deepika plays a character of the conventional Indian girl, while her other character is that of a Chinese girl, which appears in the second half. Now Deepika is not just donning a Chinese look but has also done all the action required for her character. Deepika went through some rigorous training to get her action scenes shot in the correct manner.
 
Speaking about her role Deepika reveals, "Yes it was extremely challenging. I did take up this film as I would be doing action for the first time. I must say that doing Chandani Chawk To China is very exciting. I wish I could say more about it. But as its release date is yet to be finalized I can’t reveal anything more at this stage."
 
It can be recalled that the film was earlier known as Mera Naam Chin Chin Choo and also Made in China . Reportedly, it is a semi- autobiographical film on its lead actor, Akshay Kumar’s life, about a chef who is mistaken to be a martial arts expert.
 
Though Akshay is a trained martial arts expert and has done a lot of action, Deepika will not be seen as a Chinese doll. Let’s wait for its first promo to see Deepika’s art!
