Deepika Padukone has been facing an allegation that, she abruptly walked out of Hindi film 'Race 2' to accommodate herself in Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Kochadaiyaan'. The actress has denied this charge, saying she was forced to do so.
"The makers of Race 2 delayed the shooting for more than one and half years. This put me under pressure as I had other commitments to honour. When the Kochadaiyaan offer came, I had no other option other than walking out of Race 2," she says.
Reiterating that she was forced to take a decision on 'Race 2', Deepika says she is aware that those behind the project have filed a complaint against her in the actors' association. "I will explain my position to the association," she says.
On acting with Rajini, she says, "Like anyone else in these parts, I am a great fan of the Superstar. It is a big honour to work with him. When I met him first, I was in fail of words. But I am planning to chat with him on the sets of Kochadaiyaan."
