Deepika Padukone returns with Cocktail and clarifies that both her character in the forthcoming film and the theme of the movie are different from Love Aaj Kal. The doubts about the similarity between the two films and her character arose after the first promos of Cocktail came out. She has teamed up with Saif Ali Khan in Cocktail, which is written by Imtiaz Ali and directed by Homi Adajania. “The minute people see Saif and me together, they will think about Love Aaj Kal,” Deepika told reporters on Wednesday. “Yes, it is a love story, but it is also about friendship, betrayal, fun and trust. So I think in terms of the film, it is very, very different,” she insisted. The promos show Deepika, mouthing some bold dialogues. She clarified: “I am not the film’s writer. The dialogues were written based on the character that I am playing. Veronica is a very confident girl. She is very self-assured. I am so glad I went with Veronica because when the trailer released two days ago, the response was fantastic. What people are also reacting to is the fact that they have not seen me play something like this or look like this on-screen,” she added.
