Kolkata, May 24 (IANS) Actor Deepika Padukone finds ‘Dil Jumping Zapak’ – the peppy theme song of the sixth season of Indian Premier League – “most catchy” of all the IPL tunes.
“Of all the IPL tunes, this is the most catchy,” she told a TV channel as she jived to the song with “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” co-star Ranbir Kapoor Friday.
Deepika, who was seen supporting superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s team Kolkata Knight Riders in the initial days of the IPL, conceded to doing it for him.
“Well that was clearly for Shah Rukh. I was there for Shah Eukh and I will always be there for him,” asserted the actress who made her Bollywood debut with Shah Rukh in the 2007 hit movie “Om Shanti Om”.
Deepika now supports “underdogs” Rajasthan Royals as according to her, they have been “pretty much consistent” in the tourney.
“I would say Rajasthan, because Chennai and Mumbai are obvious favourites for a lot of people and Rajasthan are the underdogs and they have been pretty much consistent in the tournament. So it would be Rajasthan,” she explained.
Daughter of badminton legend Prakash Padukone, the 27-year-old said she had always wanted to be an actor.
“I follow badminton, I have been a national level player myself and I played till I was in the 10th standard and then I took a three month break to focus on my boards which in India is a very big deal and after that I somehow never got back.
“Somewhere as a child I think I always knew that being in front of the camera and acting is what I always wanted to do,” she said.
Her next movie is Ayan Mukerji’s “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” and Rohit Shetty’s “Chennai Express”.
