Deepika first worked with Shah Rukh in the Bollywood film Om Shanti Om in 2007, and their bond has grown leaps and bounds since.


The 30-year-old actor said she learnt the key to a conducive working environment is good relationships which she shares with Vin and his sister. "I was a bundle of nerves on my first day on set because I was so far away from home and everyone was new and everything felt unfamiliar. But early on I realised that the process is exactly the same. People are different. If you can make the relationships work, it’s all smooth sailing," she said.
