Mumbai, March 7 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, says that an actress gets a role for her performance and not the body type. The Bollywood actress was the show stopper for designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil’s show at the Lakme Fashion Week here Sunday.
The actress who is blessed with a good figure, says she does not believe in being size zero as the Indian body type is not meant for it.
‘Correct me if I am wrong, but I personally feel that the Indian body type is not cut out to be size zero. I am not size zero and I don’t believe in that either,’ Deepika told IANS.
‘I believe that it’s nice to be little full and have a nice shape,’ she added.
‘In the (film) industry, body size doesn’t matter. What matters is how much an actor contributes through his performance and not his body size,’ explained Deepika.
‘It is important that every person should wear clothes that go with their body – the cut, the fabric make a lot of difference,’ she added.
