Deepika Padukone has revealed an interesting information about her debut Kannada movie "Aishwarya".

The Bangalore beauty, who is getting ready for the release of her Hindi movie "Happy New Year" starring Shah Rukh Khan, has said that it was Farah Khan, who advised her to work in Sandalwood film starring Upendra before venturing into Bollywood.

The Bangalore girl spoke to Suvarna News' Suguna, who had taken her first interview in Kannada way back in 2006 and recalled her first acting experience. The actress claimed that it was Farah Khan, who asked her to work in the Real Star's flick eight years ago.

"Farah Khan told me to work in the Kannada movie," Deepika claimed. Farah Khan had launched the actress in Bollywood with "Om Shanti Om" starring Shah Rukh Khan in 2007. Her debut Kannada movie was directed by Indrajith Lankesh and her performance was appreciated by critics and audience.

In the same interview, Farah Khan added, "I asked her to work in the Kannada movie because it would make her easy in front of the camera."

Deepika said that she learnt a lot from her debut movie and working with Upendra was a great experience. When asked if she is interested to work in Sandalwood again, the Bollywood diva replied, "Of course, I'm interested. I started off my career here and I love to work in Kannada industry again. If something interesting comes up, I'll definitely consider."

The Hindi actress with her "Happy New Year" team has been busy promoting their film. "Happy New Year" will release on 24 October worldwide.
