Deepika’s Jawan Cameo was for Free?
In a recent interview, the Piku actress opened up about doing cameos for free and any special appearance for Shah Rukh she’s always there. Deepika said, “No, I don’t. I wanted to be a part of 83 because I wanted it to be an ode to women who stand behind their husbands’ glory. I watched my mother do it. This was my homage to wives who make sacrifices to support their husbands’ careers. Other than that, any special appearance for Shah Rukh Khan, I am there. Same with Rohit Shetty.”
Further talking about the luck factor their bond is beyond that, she added, “We are each other’s lucky charm. But honestly, we are beyond luck. We have a sense of ownership over each other.” ALSO READ: What If We See Ayushmann Khurrana As A Villain? A Birthday Surprise For Bollywood

And also shared her happiness about ‘Pathaan’ earning enormous success, Deepika expressed saying, “I’ve never been fascinated by numbers whether it was Maths in school or the numbers of Pathaan. I was just happy that cinemas had come alive again, that people had come alive again. I was really grateful for that.”
