Not worried about box office result: Deepika
"This film is very special to me. Personally it has been a journey for me as an actor as I have invested in this film physically, mentally and emotionally. I want people to enjoy and feel for the film as I do. I am not concerned about box office, I don't care how much money it earns," Deepika told reporters.
The Homi Adajania-directed romantic comedy stars Saif Ali Khan, Deepika and debutante Diana Penty, besides Dimple Kapadia and Boman Irani.
"For me money does not matter. I want people to enjoy the film. Critics and people enjoy it, in that case if the film earns money then that's good," she said.
'Cocktail' is a story of three friends - Gautam (Saif), a flirt, Meera (Diana), a girl with "desi" values, and Veronica (Deepika) who is bold and outspoken. The film is about how the friendship becomes confusing and love gets complicated.
"The film is a journey of three friends of different personalities and then how love happens as a cocktail," Deepika said.
Deepika was offered both the roles of Meera and Veronica but she chose to play the latter.
"This role was most challenging as I have come out of my comfort zone. I have taken a risk. When Dinesh Vijan (producer) asked me to pick up a role out of the two - Meera or Veronica, I thought I have already done something like Meera in 'Love Aaj Kal' so why repeat the same thing, hence I chose Veronica. To play Meera would be similar and Veronica is new and challenging," she said.
