The source adds, “She wants to use her popularity to encourage more people to take part and instill pride in the city Deepika will also flag off the run and might run the dream run herself.”

Deepika admits, “I have been closely associated with sports as I have been an athlete all my life. In Bangalore, it will be nice to get people together to run and help the various causes associated with the marathon.”
