Deepika Padukone, who is gearing up for her upcoming film 'Piku' with Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan, says her personal style is a lot like her titular character Piku's.

"I'm happy to leave the professionals to do my hair, makeup and styling -- this is required of me in my profession and they do a great job of it. However, personally, my style is a lot like Piku -- very flowy, breezy, functional and comfortable," the 29-year-old actress told IANS.
The actress along with co-star Irrfan and director Shoojit Sircar recently unveiled the 'Piku Melange Collection', an ethnic fusion collection from Melange by clothing brand Lifestyle.
Speaking about her character's style in the film, Deepika added: "I think Piku tries to keep her look stylish and functional at the same time. She believes in looking presentable, stylish and at the same time be comfortable at work. The style in the film is also like that -- Piku works during the day, runs the house and also takes care of her father. "
The collection takes inspiration from Deepika's 'modern meets ethnic' styling in the upcoming family comedy drama, and aims at giving consumers access to the actress' style as seen in the film.
With a tag line 'Motion Se Hi Emotion', the film promises to take the audience on an emotional road trip. Written by Juhi Chaturvedi, "Piku" is slated to release on May 8.
