There is a lot more to her. Lots! Deepika is one of the finest artists I've worked with. Such 'thehrao' and such grace, she never surrenders to melodrama even when there is ample temptation to do so. Look at the scene where she gives a speech in front of the women before they commit Jauhar. Such control, restraint and so much emotive power without tripping over.The level to which he was impressed by her act at the Jauhar scene, was such that he gave the actress a token. Oh Yes! The Rs. 13 Crore paid actress received Rs. 500 by Sanjay sir. Well, he said the token means a lot to her than the huge applause she has received. Not because it is huge but because it shows his deep appreciation towards her for a job well done. Sanjay Leela Bhansali strongly believes that Deepika Padukone will certainly be among the legendary actresses of the industry.
