Asked about sharing screen space with her husband once again after movies like “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” and “Bajirao Mastani”, Deepika told IANS: “It was good.

On the kind of stories she is looking for as a producer, she shared: “My choices will always be made as an actor.

We will take it as it comes.”

She has also announced another film production — “Mahabharat”, to be made from Draupadi’s point of view.
