Her debut movie Om Shanti Om has been a success but latest Bollywood sensation Deepika Padukone attributes it mostly to her co-star Shah Rukh Khan .

The model-turned actress, who plays a traditional girl in the movie, is humble in her success and believes she has a long way to go in the tinsel world.




"When you start working in a movie, you never think that it's going to be a superhit. You just enjoy working," she said while referring to 'Om Shanti Om', which was released last week and has been quite a success at the box office.

At the same time, she gives "a lot" of credit to her co-star SRK, who plays an actor in the film, which is based on the theme of re-incarnation.

As 'Om Shanti Om' was released along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali 's romantic flick Saawariya , film critics had forecast a tough competition. It, however, proved wrong as 'Om Shanti Om' clearly scored over 'Saawariya'.

Talk about the concept of rebirth or reincarnation to Deepika and she says she has no opinion on it.

"I have never given re-incarnation a thought actually," said the daughter of legendary badminton player Prakash Padukone.

Deepika confesses to have learnt many a tip from the film legends of yesteryears -- Hema Malini and Helen -- to help her play the character of a traditional girl of 70s in her debut film.

"I have seen a couple of movies of 70s, specially of Hema Malini and Helen and that's where the inspiration came from," she said.

Though, she is yet to finalise her next Bollywood project, Deepika is hopeful to have a long stint with the silver screen and open to any kind of role in future.

"Since I am new, I just want to do as many movies as I can," she added.

Being comfortable with the limelight has never been difficult for Deepika, thanks to her father's popularity.

"I believe, it is because of my father who has always handled his successful career with ease. He also hoped for a similar career for me," she said with a sense of pride.

Advocating sports, Deepika said, "It's true that only few sports in India are being supported. I think, not only badminton, every sport needs to be supported because there is lot of talent in the country."
