Deepika says 'Ouch!'

Deepika Padukone's sprained ankle is not going to heal anytime soon. The star had twisted her ankle while doing a martial art stunt for her forthcoming flick with Akshay Kumar, Chandni Chowk to China.

"The stunts in Chandni Chowk To China were tough. Fortunately, I got no broken bones. But I got a twisted ankle which will remain with me. My left ankle will remain sprained for all my life," rues Dipika.

The actor says that its an old injury that has got flared up again during shooting. The sprain has become so bad now that Deepika says that she won't be able to sit cross-legged anytime soon.

"I sprained it once while rehearsing and then I sprained the same ankle at exactly the same place twice again. Luckily its not a fracture. But I can't sit cross-legged or sit on my hunches ... I can't do anything that requires me to put my weight on my left leg," she adds.

Being from an athletic family, Deepika says that she always wanted to do an action film in spite of the fact that it is tough on your body particularly if you are accident prone.

"Yes, I always wanted to do an action character. I'm glad I got an opportunity. Akshay Kumar was a fantastic co-star. The way he comes on the sets and goes through the scenes of the day and the way he improvises, is tremendous."

Deepika says she wants to do a sports-based film, preferably on badminton, her fathers sport. "Look at what Chak De India did to hockey. I would love to do a really good film on the game of badminton. In fact, efforts are on to put a project like this together. I would like to contribute as much as possible to sports. Yes, I'd support badminton more than any other sport. But I'd like to support Indian sports in every way possible," says Deepika.

According to her, being a sportsperson, the first thing that one learns is effective time management. "I started travelling at a very young age. That taught me to be punctual," she ends.
