Speaking exclusively to India Today about her life-changing moments, Deepika Padukone said, “I was extremely raw and unaware, but Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan held my hand and guided me throughout the entire process. There was also a section of people who scathingly criticized my work--Oh she is a model. she cannot act: My accent was made fun of. A lot was said and written about me and my craft, and, the truth is, all of it was extremely hurtful. When you are all of 21, these kinds of brickbats most certainly affect you.”

Crediting her upbringing and sporting background, she said, “Criticism fuels me. It fuels me to work harder, to improve my skills, and evolve the various aspects of my craft. More importantly, it fuels my personal evolution. Failure, too, has taught me a lot. I have often been put down, even written off. But I have never been bitter about these experiences. In fact, I am grateful.”
