Deepika Padukone Saif Ali Khan Friendship during Aarakshan Movie Shooting

She said that, "I play a young, independent girl, Poorvi Anand, who’s torn between her father, Amitabh Bachchan and her lover, Saif Ali Khan. The former is the head of a prestigious institution while the latter is an underprivileged Dalit teacher and how issues of reservation flare up between them.”

“Thankfully, never. Though I know it happens often to women, who are multitasking always.

“Aarakshan, as the name suggests, is reservation, which has given rise to the commercialization of the education system. And a major chunk of the student community depend on these extra classes to fare well.”

“This is my first film with him and though he’s a hard taskmaster, he’s very paternal too. Also, I was amazed to see his man management skills. Like a lot of his earlier films, this one too was shot in Bhopal with huge crowds who aren’t camera-savvy. To train and be patient with scores of people and yet, get work done with the cast rolling is something a genius can do.”

“Prateik was like a breath of fresh air and his spontaneity is remarkable. I didn’t have much on screen space with Manoj (Bajpai) and Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) is truly a stalwart. It’s a dream come true.”
