“He and his sister, Samantha, are to me what Shah Rukh (Khan) and Farah (Khan) were when I started out here. They are family,” she says in the November issue of Vogue India.

The actress began her Bollywood career with Shah Rukh-starrer “Om Shanti Om”, which was directed by Farah, and till date Deepika maintains a close friendship with them.

The 30-year-old star reveals that after filming for “xXx”, she realised that place or people might change but key to a conducive working environment remains the same– good relationships.

“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 says.
