Finally clarification is come from Deepika Padukone side. Few days ago Deepika had posted the first look of her upcoming film “Bajirao Mastani” on Instagram, which will clash at the Box office with SRK-Kajol starrer “Dilwale” this year, with hashtag #ChallengeAccepted.
Deepika later edited the picture and removed the #challengeaccepted, but after that there were reports that all is not well between Deepika Padukone and her mentor Shahrukh Khan.
Now recently Deepika Padukone says “My equation with Shah Rukh Khan is very very special”.
Deepika said, “I find it really amazing that some pictures of my film, with me, which I had put with a certain hashtag, it’s amazing how some connection is found with some other film and completely blown out of proportion.”
“I don’t think any of these articles will ever come in the way of my equation with Shahrukh Khan. What equation he and I share is known to us. It is very, very special. None of these articles will come in between that. Ironically, while everyone must have been reading that article, Shahrukh messaged me and congratulated me about my foundation (‘Live, Laugh, Love’) because I launched the logo of my foundation yesterday. He was actually one of the first people whom I spoke to when I was thinking of setting it up. He has always been very, very encouraging and supportive,” the actress added.
