Deepika Padukone, who stars in Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan, says she got admission in college by flashing her ‘sports certificate’. In an interview with PTI, she said, “I owe my admission to the sports quota. It worked for me, so reservation has touched my life. But then there is a much wider impact of reservation in education and jobs. It has its own benefits and pitfalls. I am sure that the film would fetch varied reaction. This is why it really meant a lot to me when Aarakshan came my way. There is no added glamour quotient or a romantic track just so that it could be made into a ‘masala’ affair,” she added.
‘Aarakshan’ explores the politics behind reservation in education system and stars Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Padukone and Manoj Bajpai in key roles. Saif plays Deepika’s love interest in the movie while Bachchan is her father. So while the core subject of the film was dramatic enough, the demand of the script was for Deepika to share certain chemistry with Bachchan.
