"For me, what was really heartening was the way India embraced the film. I think just the way everyone embraced my performance, even the way I spoke in the film, that makes me really happy. To step out of your comfort zone and work in a territory that you're absolutely unfamiliar with and not knowing what the end result might be, then to see that translate into this kind of love and appreciation, it makes me feel like it's worth taking all of those risks," she said.

At the event, Deepika was joined by Soha Ali Khan and Neha Dhupia. When asked if there is a pressure on celebrities to always look good, Deepika said it's actually about the expectation people have from them. "I think it depends from individual to individual. A lot of people have a different way of handling it. I wouldn't say there is pressure, but expectations, yes. There is a lot of expectation from everyone to look a certain way," Deepika said.

"For me it doesn't really matter. If I've had a long flight and I look great, then good, if I don't that's also ok. It's totally ok to not have great days, to not feel your best or have low days. You've to allow yourself that much and not be hard on yourself," she added.

Neha, who was also asked the same, quipped, "Everyday (I feel the pressure). Specially when I scroll my Instagram feed and suddenly Deepika's picture pops out. It's the worst feeling in the world. And Soha's too."
