It was only yesterday early morning that Deepika Padukone was welcomed in Mumbai after her hectic shooting schedule. The actress, who has been shooting out of India for four months reached the country only to be sleep deprived. If you think that all the jet lag from the travelling can take a toll on anyone’s health, then let us tell you that Deepika sure is a strong woman.
Soon after her return, she did not rest or sleep and instead organised a special lunch for her entire team at her Worli residence as she hadn’t met them for months.
Says a source to DNA, “In the last 10 days, after wrapping up xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Deepika has had no time to rest. After xXx, she flew to Paris to spend some time with beau Ranveer Singh and then went to Budapest to shoot for her dance number in Raabta. After she returned to Mumbai yesterday, she hosted a lunch for her core team members at her residence where she caught up with everyone.”
Adds the source, “Deepika had organised the entire lunch from Budapest itself along with her cook and had planned the menu. It was a pleasure-cum-business lunch for her as she discussed what she had done during her xXx shoot while in turn, they briefed her on the work front. Today onwards, she will start having script-reading sessions.”
Deepika says, “My team — my brand managers, personal assistant, hair, make-up, stylist and spot boys — is my extended family in Mumbai. I have been away for a while and I can’t wait to spend time with all of them. Homecoming is a lovely feeling.”
