100 crore club does not fascinate Deepika Padukone

Mumbai, PTI | Updated : 18 June 2013, 01:29 PM

Two of her films this year -- 'Race 2' and the latest 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'—have entered the elite Rs 100 crore club, but actress Deepika Padukone does not attach much significance to this tag.

Race 2' received a fantastic opening at the box office giving Deepika a superb headstart this year. Her recent release opposite ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor also did well at BO. Both the films managed to achieve the benchmark. Infact, YJHD has become the first film to cross Rs 100 crore mark within a week of its release.

"It feels good when your films do good business and is appreciated by everyone. It is an added bonus. But I don't give importance to Rs 100 crore club. I continue to focus on my work and do better. But what if a film earns money but the film is not good... I feel all good films should do well," Deepika told PTI in an interview here.

Recently, masala entertainers have managed to do over Rs 100 crore business. But Deepika feels its unfair to divide the success of a film based on its genre.

"It feels good when films like 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', 'Barfi' and others do well. One should not categorise the success of films genre wise, like only action or masala films will do well. All good films will do well," she said.

Her last three films -- 'Cocktail', 'Race 2', 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' did well commercially, but she does not review them.

"I don't sit and analyse about the films I do. It feels good that my films have been liked by the audience," she said. Usually, when an actor has made a mark, they tend to become choosy. But Deepika's approach towards work has not changed.

"I work on a film if I feel excited and If I know I will enjoy being part of the project. I have not changed my approach to work," she added.
