Fame is not all that important to me: Deepika

Actress Deepika Padukone, who won the Entertainer of the Year honour at the Hello Hall of Fame Awards, says fame is not that important to her.

The Padmaavat star attended the awards event in a stylish white ensemble.

Deepika said: “I won’t say fame is all that important for me, but I would definitely like to say that the kind of industry I am working in and the kind of work that I am doing... money and fame are a part of what I do, and can’t ignore it.”

“I don’t think that one can ignore the fame and the attention. It is the by-product of the work that we do. I love my work. In the last ten years, the work that I have done... I got so much to learn and have enjoyed it. And in future, I hope that to keep on enjoying my job.”

She also spoke about her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan, who has been diagnosed with a rare illness and has been missing from action since the last couple of weeks. She is to feature with him in a Vishal Bhardwaj movie.

“I think we should always pray for people and their good health. If his (Irrfan’s) health is not best at this point, I think it is important for all of us to pray, not just for him, but for everyone.

“I always say a small little prayer for myself and everyone around. Yes, I think the last couple of weeks have been emotionally challenging, but yes, I think we all should say a little prayer,” she said, adding that she has had some of her most special experiences as an actor with Irrfan.

“I think, he has requested that there are times when people need to be left alone for sometime and figure their lives out... We should respect the space he has requested for and hope for the best.”

Deepika herself suffered aggravated pain in the neck. But she said she is well now.
