Deepika Padukone unveils Melange Cocktail fashion collection
Deepika Padukone will be seen flaunting a red bikini in her forthcoming film Cocktail. But the actress feels that the Indian body type is not naturally suited for the costume.
“I wish it was so easy and natural. I think the Indian body type is somehow not suited for a bikini. We as Indians have to work a little extra hard if we wish to carry it off,” the 26-year-old said at the unveiling of the Melange Cocktail fashion collection.
Talking about her regime for the bikini shot, she said, “I changed my workout slightly. Basically, I just had to sacrifice going out for dinners every time Dinesh Vijan ( the producer) took the cast out for dinners. I would just sit in my room alone and ate steamed fish and not have any dessert.”
“I remember being so disciplined that the day I finished the bikini shoot and I knew I could start eating normally. He (Vijan) took me out for dinner and I had this big chocolate dessert. Food and desserts, I think the restaurant ran out of food,” added Deepika humorously.
The film also stars Saif Ali Khan and model Diana Penty and hits theatres on 13th July in the UK.
