How Deepika Padukone got her Chinki eyes
Deepika Padukone is looking ravishing in her two completely different get-ups for the film Chandni Chowk to China , co-starring Akshay Kumar. It’s being widely speculated that the actress plays a double role in the film. But is it really a double role for Deepika Padukone or is the news just some producer’s gimmick to lure the audiences?
Deepika clarifies, “It’s actually a double role and no publicity gimmick. I play two different characters in Chandni Chowk To China , one is an Indian called Sukhi, and the other is a Chinese girl, Meow Meow. The Chinese character is a pro at martial arts for which I had to undergo four months of rigorous training before the film started.”
There was buzz that Deepika Padukone had to use adhesive tapes on her face so that her eyes would stretch for the Chinese look. True? “We had thought of that initially but it wasn’t a good idea to use tapes, they’re bad for the skin,” says the actor, “My makeup artist came up with a simpler solution and used the eyeliner in such a way that it gave my eyes the Chinese tweak,” she laughed.
