In the first part of the film, the 27-year-old played a girl-next-door Naina Talwar, and is refereed to as 'chasmish' by her on-screen friends played by Ranbir Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
"Naina is a special character for me. The glasses helped me live that part. I would like to keep them as a memory of her," Deepika said in a statement.
"She is emotional about the character, and the glasses were an important part of it. Also, people kept calling her 'chashmish' (a term she was addressed as in the film too)," a source said.
'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', a coming-of-age romantic comedy film has been directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar. The film has already crossed the Rs 100 crore mark within just a week of its release.
