Actress Deepika Padukone, whose performance as Veronica was highly appreciated in Cocktail, says her character in her upcoming film Yeh Jawaan Hai Deewani is more close to her real self.

"Actually Yeh Jawaan Hai Deewani  is very similar to me in person like Veronica was not. I think Veronica, as a character, as a person is very different from how I am personally but Yeh Jawani is very similar to how I am," the 27-year-old said at the Big Star Entertainment Awards.

Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Yeh Jawaan Hai Deewani  also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin.

Asked about her supposed tussle with actress Anushka Sharma, Deepika said, "There is no truth to this and I always wish her well."

Apparently, the two actresses are vying for the lead role opposite Salman Khan in Kick, which has led to a tussle between Anushka and Deepika.
