Mumbai: After grand success of her last film 'Padmaavat', Deepika Padukone is currently one of the most successful and sought after actors in Bollywood. She made her Hollywood debut alongside Vin Diesel, and now inching towards global domination too. Deepika, who is otherwise fiercely private about her personal life, recently spoke about the sexual harassment she faced early in her career.

In an interview to British publication Evening Standard, Deepika Padukone said, “There were lots of things I was advised [to do]. To get a boob job, do the beauty pageants. They felt it was the right way to be recognized or picked up by a Bollywood director or producer. It might be an easier way to achieve what you want to achieve. But I haven’t been that person; I’ve always followed my gut.”

The 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' star was also asked about the #MeToo movement in Hollywood and if Bollywood will also witness the same change. “We’re in the same position as the rest of the world, I think we’re all in this together. There’s so much more awareness. There are so many people who speak up and I think in the same way that we see the wheels moving in the right direction globally, I see the same thing happening in India as well.”

On the work front, Deepika Padukone is yet to announce her next project. She was supposed to commence shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's crime thriller. But due to co-star Irrfan Khan’s health, the film has been postponed as he is recovering from his disease.
