Deepika Padukone may have chartered a successful Bollywood career for herself in a short span but the actress says she is rarely happy with her work.
The 25-year-old says her self-criticism helps her do better with each film. "I am very harsh on myself. I am very rarely satisfied with my own work but I am glad that it is like this.
I would rather be harsh on myself than be happy with the smallest thing that I do. I compete with myself and challenge myself to do better every day. It gives me the drive to push myself otherwise I would be stuck in the rut," Deepika told PTI.
The 26-year-old proved that she is more than a pretty face with her powerful performance as Veronica in Cocktail, her lone release this year.
"I am glad that this film happened for people to realise that. I have always believed in my work and myself but sometimes you have to wait for the right script and opportunity to come your way. Cocktail did that for me."
