Every artist has his way of working. They prepare their characters accordingly. Actress Deepika Padukone carries many things on the sets like a school kid with a highlighter, scale. He recently wrapped up the shooting of Shakun Batra’s untitled film. Shakun calls Deepika the school kid as she prepares her script as a student. During an interview, Deepika said, ‘It is true that I carry all these things with me. I highlight the characters on the script and the dialogues written next to them in different colors. This is my style.
There is a complete box of pencils, colors, sharpener, eraser, clipboard. A pencil is a must, especially when I have to change dialogue. There are also directors like Shakun, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Kabir Khan, who are ready for change. He pays attention to the emotions of the scenes. If any change feels right to that emotion, then let it be done. Then I write that in front of those words or lines, which makes it easier for me to say or understand.
