Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone, who has been delivering back-to-back successful films in 2013, says the biggest compliment she ever got for her latest film ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela’ was from filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.

"The biggest compliment which I got for `Ram-leela` was from Shekhar Kapur. I received a message from him which says that I have added so many layers to Leela that even Shakespeare didn`t think while writing for Juliet. For me, that`s the big compliment," Deepika said.

Her first big hit of the year was ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and ‘Chennai Express’ followed it. With ‘Raam-leela’, Deepika has scored a hattrick and she says she is enjoying every moment of it.

"All I can say is I am thankful to God and I am enjoying every moment of it. It is very overwhelming for me that `Ram-leela` is doing so well. It`s a perfect combination of what I ideally want for all my films, being critically acclaimed as well as doing well at the box office," she said.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, ‘Ram-leela’ which released last Friday also featured Ranveer Singh.
