Deepika: It was tough not to like Akshay

Deepika Padukone who has been Akshay Kumar’s Co Star in Houseful and Chandni Chowk To China, says it was not easy for her to hate Akshay in Desi Boyz, Deepika and Akshay are playing characters who hate eachother in the film,

Deepika said,

Can you believe it, Honestly it was tough for me to play a part where I don’t like him. See, the fact of the matter is that I am genuinely extremely fond of Akshay. I have done my first few films with him and this is my third film.

Idea was to do something different instead of following a clichd routine. I know that many would have expected Akshay and I to be together as a pair but then there wouldn’t have been any novelty about it. Having said that, most of my scenes have Akshay as well along with John so it is all the more fun,

Though the film is all about two boys but it wouldn’t have been perfect unless Deepika and Chitrangada were their to support,

Deepika said,

See, it’s a fact that the film is eventually the boys, their friendship and their journey. However this is one journey which would be incomplete without the presence of the ladies.
