Deepika Padukone, who made her debut with Om Shanti Om, has completed almost 13 years in Bollywood. The actress has given some of her best performances in the past. Talking about her journey in the industry, she told a tabloid, "Honestly, when I think about it, it doesn’t feel like 13 years. But on that particular day (November 9), when you get all the messages, and look at the social media, you realise, ‘oh okay, it’s indeed been 13 years.’ Having said that, I do feel that it’s been an incredible journey with lots of learnings, as well as ups-and-downs. But at the end of the day, if I were to look back, there is only feeling of gratitude,”
As she has resumed shooting for most of her projects, Deepika adds, "Honestly, there was a lot of enthusiasm, and a little bit of nervousness too. And more than the pandemic, it was due to being unsure of how the processes are going to be."
Since now that the situation of the pandemic has been controlled inis way that the lockdown has been over and people are working, the Padmavat actor says she has now gotten used to it. "Now, we know what the drill is and all of us take extra precautions, in terms of following guidelines, wearing masks, and even sanitisation, of not just our hands but all the equipment too. Before the shoot, we are also taken through a drill of what it’s going to be like. So, that way, we work in a very safe environment. Initially thought, it was exhausting as it’s something you’re not used to but once you get used to it, it’s fine," she adds
