Deepika Padukone was given the first choice of playing Meera or Veronica. She chose the latter because Meera's character was similar to her earlier character Meera in Love Aaj Kal. Later Diana Penty got Meera's role. Interestingly, earlier in their modeling career, Diana had replaced Deepika as Maybelline's brand ambassador. See more »
In the last scene, where Saif Ali Khan is proposing Diana Penty for marriage, the camera keeps on switching from his face to her face and vice-versa. In this sequence, we get to see that Diana Penty's hairstyle changes every time (when the focus is on Diana, she is seen with left and right thin braids stuck to her back hair by pin. But when the focus is on Saif Ali khan, we get to see Diana's back hair and there are no braids stuck at the back. A side shot of her hair reveals that there are no braids also. That means Diana's and Saif's shots were taken at different time. When Diana's shot was taken, she had braids. But when Saif's shot was taken, she had no braids! Seems to have bypassed the editor's eye. See more »
Cocktail CATCH IT (B) From promos Cocktail looked like something really out of the box or fresh but sadly it's just another story about 2 best friends falling for the same Casanova guy. Now the only thing made this movie different from the previous movies was the brilliant performance and confidence of Deepika Padakone, this woman was amazing and literally stole the show with her brilliant performance. She deserves all the accolades, as she brought this sympathy into audience's hearts towards the party girls. That even though they are bold, and do crazy stuff it doesn't mean that they don't have heart or don't want simple things in life. On the other hand Saif Ali Khan as Casanova was irritating. He has the looks but c'mon his cheesy dialogues and pickup lines were just too cheap to ignore. New girl Diana Penty makes a good impression. The music of the movie is really good. In the end, it's a typical movie with nothing new but still enjoyable and a must see for Deepika's Performance.
