Priyanka was my first friend in Bollywood: Deepika

“Priyanka was the first film person I met when I came here,” revealed Deepika and added, “She was a huge star. I had just joined. She was the first friend I made. We were so comfortable shooting for Pinga song that it troubled a few people because it went against what a lot of people thought it would be. People expected it there would be a lot of tension regarding what she wearing and what I am wearing. It was completely different. Sanjay Leela Bhansali would jokingly say why can’t you fight.” Like soul sisters, Priyanka and Deepika would be there for each other always on sets.
Shared Deepika, “It was great fun. While shooting we watched each other’s back. If there was a step which I would find difficult, she would encourage me and if she would something difficult I would encourage her. There were days when we both wanted to give up and there were days when we both came in with the same kind of energy. It’s been a lot of fun and I couldn’t have asked for a better co-star.”
Priyanka plays the role of Kashibai and Deepika plays Mastani in Bajirao Mastani, according to a media reports.
