Actress Deepika Padukone, who was last seen onscreen in Padmaavat, says that everything boils down to the script itself for a film to work at the box office.
Deepika was addressing the media at the cover launch of the book titled “The Dot That Went for a Walk” on Wednesday, here.
“I think it’s amazing and nice for us to say that women centric or female centric films are working at a moment like this when we are talking about female role models. Having said that, when it comes to creativity, we need to look beyond female or male,” said the actress.
Chhapaak is directed by Meghna Gulzar and co-produced by Deepika Padukone.
