She is known to be a soft, shy person in real life but actress Deepika Padukone admits she loved using a few expletives in a scene for her upcoming film "Tamasha".

The official trailer of "Tamasha" sees Deepika abusing a man, who does not allow her to make a phone call.

When asked about the sequence, she said; "Abusing people does not come naturally to me. So, in the scene where I am asking a man to allow me to make phone call and he does not budge and I abuse him, I enjoyed it a lot.

"It was fun because I don't get to do that in real," Deepika told reporters.

The actress along with actor Ranbir Kapoor and director Imtiaz Ali was in the capital to promote "Tamasha", which arrives in theatres this Friday.

It has been eight years since Deepika started her showbiz journey and the actress has undergone immense transformation and today stands tall with films like "Piku", "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", "Finding Fanny" and "Cocktail" to her credit.

The actress said she is finally in a place where she is enjoying her craft and being in front of the camera.

"I don't think I can talk about my own growth but I can say I have learnt a lot. It has not been easy, specially for a person who comes from a different lifestyle, completely different background, to adapt to a new city, new profession and people, not understanding anything about the craft but being here because I am very passionate to be the best that I can be...

"I have that thing to learn. I don't mind criticism and accepting my mistakes and learning from all the films that I have done and the experiences that I had. I have learnt a lot and most importantly reached a stage in my life today where I really enjoy my craft and I enjoy spending time in front of the camera and milking that," the actress said.

Post "Tamasha", Deepika, 29, will be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Bajirao Mastani", which also stars her rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh and Priyank Chopra.

When asked who out of Ranbir and Ranveer is a prankster, Deepika named her ex-flame.
