Deepika Padukone on representing India at Cannes Film Festival

With her persistence and hardwork, Deepika Padukone managed to become the topmost Bollywood actress of her generation and now she is representing the country on one of the biggest global platforms of cinema. The actress is a member of Cannes Film Festival Jury this year and naturally, she is quite excited about it.

She told ETimes, "After being an actor for 15 years, for your work to finally be recognised on a global platform such as this, and to be able to represent the country, obviously, there is a sense of gratitude and being extremely overwhelmed."

Deepika considers herself as a representative of whole of South Asia and she has an inspiring messages for everyone who looks up to her. She says, "I mean, I always had this, sort of, core belief – that if your energy is behind something with the right intention, then it will happen. All you need is the right intention, and also, I think, patience. So, somewhere deep down inside I have always believed that – and I am not saying this for myself, but on behalf of all South Asian talent in general – ‘this is where we belong’. And it feels like that’s finally happening now. It should have happened much earlier, but I guess, it took its own time. It’s taken generations of work from different people to get us to this place.”
