Although Bajirao Mastani was a periodic drama, one cannot miss out on Deepika using a sword like a pro. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film performed exceptionally well at the box office. The film also featured Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
Released in 2015, the character of Mastani in the film rode horses and indulged in sword fighting. Deepika learnt both skills as a part of preparing for the role. She even got trained in Kalaripayattu, Indian martial art and one of the oldest fighting systems.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, the actress said, “I will have to learn from scratch. Horse-riding should be more fun than sword-fighting, but it will also be stressful as I know that the training would have to be done simultaneously with the shooting of the film. I will shoot probably 12-15 hours a day, and the preparation will be done alongside that.”
Featuring Rajnikanth, Jackie Shroff, Aadhi, Shobana and Deepika Padukone, Kochadaiiyaan is a computer-animated film. It was one of the first films in India where live-action actors were created digitally.
The film used motion capture technology to create lively scenes. The film did not do well at the box office; however, Deepika received praises for her roles and actions. It used 48 cameras to shoot the movements of artists from 48 different angles.
