Shah Rukh recently announced that henceforth all his films will feature the actress' name first in the credits, and that has left Deepika even more impressed.
She is currently working with him in "Chennai Express".
"It's a wonderful initiative taken to prove that men and women are equal in all fields and professions. The way he interacts with us during shooting clearly shows that he doesn't differentiate. I've experienced that in 'Om Shanti Om' and now on 'Chennai Express. Thank you Shah," Deepika said in a statement.
