When asked if she thinks of winning a national award,Deepika said,”Every actor dreams of it. When you do a shot in front of the camera,it is not on your mind. You are not working to win awards.

“But at the end of the day,when you finish a film and have put in all the hard work,you wish for an award and if a national award comes my way,then it is definitely a good thing,” she said.

Deepika will be seen next in Karan Johar’s home production ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ opposite Ranbir Kapoor,Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’ and in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Chennai Express,’ opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
