With Race 2 emerging as a winner, the entire cast of the movie is on a high. The movie is a roaring success and it has lived up to the name that Abbas-Mustan thrillers have made for themselves. However, one thing that viewers particularly remember is the lasting impression of Elena, the character essayed by Deepika Padukone in the movie.
Deepika is a scene-stealer with her undeniable presence of experienced talent as she lights up the screen with her presence. Taran Adarsh from Bollywood Hungama mentioned about Deepika’s performance. His review read, “Deepika has the best scenes in the film. She looks stunning and immerses herself into her character completely. This is the first action thriller Deepika has worked on, but on watching the movie, no one would ever think so. Her gun-toting, edgy character has won a lot of praise. She is a stunner in every scene, and her look in the movie is gaining a lot of accolades”. Ananya Bhattacharya from Zee wrote, ‘“Deepika’s acting skills are going up with every single film of hers”.
With Race 2, Deepika has proven that she is way ahead of her competition. From playing Shanti Priya in Om Shanti Om to Veronica in Cocktail and now Elena in Race 2, Deepika has successfully portrayed her multi-faceted versatile side on the silver screen and that too with ease. Here’s wishing the actress the best of wishes! 2013 is clearly going to be her year of excellence with an exciting line up of films including Ram Leela, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express with King Khan and Kochadaiyaan with Rajnikanth!
