With so many offers to adorn the cover of almost every fashion or film glossy, what does it take to get this former model get all excited about yet another photo shoot?

"It's very important for me as an actor to monitor the kind of covers that I am a part of and I think it's also important for the magazine to monitor what kind of people they have on their covers. It works both ways. But at the end of the day, it's obvious and more serious to know what the magazine has in mind. They generally have a concept, they generally have an idea and we have this entire team, it works together to get this beautiful picture across," says Deepika.

And if you're looking for Deepika's style mantra, the Om Shanti Om girl believes in keeping it simple.

"Personally I'm someone who would like to dress very simply. I don't like exaggerating too much because it's something that happens to me on a daily basis. I'm always at a shoot or always doing something or the other or on a film set where so much is happening and even if it's a simple jeans and a T-shirt, it's part of the costume. So personally I always prefer wearing something that I'm comfortable in, something I don't have to worry about. But at the same time, I believe in wearing your personality. I think that is very important. I'm someone who would rather wear something that I'm comfortable in and something I think would speak for me versus following a fashion trend," says she.

Make-up artist Mickey Contractor, who did Deepika's look for the photoshoot, says, "We basically decided that it should be something that is very close to the '40s. Not exactly depicting the '40s but something that is between '40s and '50s and we wanted to keep it very divaesque and since the liners are also the new trend again. So that's the kind of look we've kept. It's a very dark burgundy mouth and, hot basically."

Fashion Director Vogue India, Anaita Shroff Adajania adds, "Well, I think what we've tried to do this time with Deepika is to work on the whole play of romance, the beauty of the monsoon. It's more that when we had Deepika for the cover we felt this was the look that would work best for her. It was kind of like the whole cover was styled around her being the cover personality."
