‘[I] want my film characters to live on for many years’

Deepika Padukone, one of the highest-paid actresses in the world according to Forbes, says that she tries to be part of scripts that would hopefully live on for many years. The actress, who stole hearts with her debut film Om Shanti Om and later went on to do path-breaking roles in films like Cocktail, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Piku, will also be making her Hollywood debut with xXx: Return of Xander Cage.
"Well, I think as an actor the intention always is to be part of a good script and characters that hopefully live on for many, many years," the actress said in a recent interview, and added that she tries to spread smiles through her films. The star believes that it is not necessary for all the films to have a happy ending, but as an actress, she tries to create a positive impact on the society through her films. "Hopefully, you get the opportunity to be a part of films that have iconic characters. So, one can't always guarantee what the end is going to be like. I think the end of a film obviously always depends on the story and the situation. But, yes, somewhere you try and do meaningful films, you try and do films that kind of have a positive impact on society or at least have that feel-good factor."
