Mumbai, March 12: Bollywood’s International Actress Deepika Padukone, who clinched the Entertainer of the Year honour at the Hello Hall of Fame Awards, says fame is not that important to her.

The “Padmaavat” star attended the event in a stylish white ensemble here on Sunday.

Addressing Media, Padukone said “I won’t say fame is all that important for me, but I would definitely like to say that the kind of industry I am working in and the kind of work that I am doing, so money and fame are a part of what I do, and I can’t ignore it”.

“I don’t think you can ignore the fame and the attention. It is the by-product of the work that I do. I love my work. In the last ten years, the work that I have done… I got so much to learn and I have enjoyed my work. And in future, I hope that I keep on enjoying the work that I do”, she added.

Speaking about her “Piku” co-star Irrfan Khan, who has been diagnosed with a rare illness and has been missing from action since past few weeks, is to feature with him in a Vishal Bhardwaj helmed movie.

“I think we should always pray for people and their good health. If his (Irrfan’s) health is not best at this point, I think it is important for all of us to pray, not just for him, but for everyone.

“I always say a small little prayer for myself and everyone around. Yes, I think the last couple of weeks have been emotionally challenging, but yes, I think we all should say a little prayer,” Deepika stated, adding that she has had some of her most special experiences as an actor with Irrfan.

“I think like he has requested that there are times when people need to be left alone for sometime and figure their lives out… We should respect the space they have requested for and hope for the best.”
