Deepika Padukone’s fetish for high-heel creates trouble for Saif Ali Khan!
Deepika Padukone stands tall with the envious height of 5’9”, but courtesy her being a leggy-lass, she looks even taller. And as happens with all fashion-conscious women, she loves her high heels. But we guess, she is unaware of the fact that her high-heel fetish has its share of problems.
Saif Ali Khan, her co-star in three films, Race 2, Cocktail and Love Aaj Kal, is just around 5’10”. Due to this, sources say that during the making of Race 2, Deepika was forced to kick off her stilettos every time she got close to Saif. However, in solo shots and scenes where there were other actors, like John Abraham and Anil Kapoor, Deepika insisted that her designer provides her with really high heels.
Little birdie chirps, “Deepika loves her heels and hated the fact that she had to wear flats to romance Saif.” However, as we all know, Saif has a terrific sense of humour. So when asked if there was any truth to the heel-story, he said, “Yes, it is true. Deepika is already very tall. When she wears heels, she stands 6’5″. With that height, she should work more with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and even taller heroes. I can’t think of many heroes who are as tall as Mr. Bachchan.”
Saif added, “As men, we are not a very tall race in India. For us, five feet ten inches is a good height. But Deepika, as I said, looks 6’5″. I do not know which culture that is okay in. Perhaps in the Amazonian culture. But never mind, Deepika looks great in heels. God bless her.”
Wonder what Deepika has to say on this!
High heels are a type of shoe in which the heel, compared with the toe, is significantly higher off the ground. They make the wearer appear taller, accentuates the muscle tone in their legs and makes their legs appear visibly longer. There are many types of high heels, which come in different styles, colors and materials, and can be found all over the world. They have significant cultural and fashionable meanings attached to them, which have been largely shaped by historical contexts over the past 1,000 years. Wearing high heels is associated with some health problems.
