Deepika Padukone talks about her dream role

Deepika Padukone loves romantic movies and says her ultimate aim is to do what Kajol did in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ).

"I loved DDLJ and my dream role is Kajol's role in that film," said Padukone.

"Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge came at a time when I was growing up and watching a lot of Indian cinema. At that time parents used to oppose [lovers in the film] and the couple used to go all out to get together... There was so much drama on screen. Song sequences were shot in Switzerland. I used to love it," she added.

Padukone said she has enjoyed acting in romantic comedies like Bachna Ae Haseeno and the just released Break Ke Baad.

"As audience I have always enjoyed watching rom-coms which is why even as an actor I enjoy doing love stories," she said.

But for Ashutosh Gowariker's just released Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, the 24-year-old has taken a departure from her routine genre to play freedom fighter Kalpana Dutta, who was a part of the Chittagong uprising of the 1930s.

"I accepted the role primarily because I was getting a chance to work with Ashutosh Gowariker. Who wouldn't want to work with him? Secondly, I felt the subject was not given too much importance as part of our history books. So as an actor it was a different challenge to be able to educate the audience about a pertinent revolution for Indian independence," she said.

Padukone, who is on a short break from shooting, will return to the grind for Desi Boyz, starring Akshay Kumar and John Abraham.
