Hyderabad, Jan 3: Deepika Padukone has got an enviable height and a figure to die for. Dippy is 5 feet 9 inches tall and for her slim body she looks even more tall. Being a fashionista, she loves wearing high heels. But this heel fetish of hers proved not so favourable for co-star Saif Ali Khan. For the movie “Race 2”, Dippy had to remove her stilettos everytime she had some scenes with Saif as Saif is 5 feet 10 inches.
However, Deepika is so passionate about wearing heels that she chose to wear sky-high heels during the solo scenes or while she shared the space with John Abraham and Anil Kapoor. She was upset as she had to wear flat shoes while romancing Saif onscreen.
Saif says that when Dippy wears high heels, she is more than 6 feet and so it is a problem for him to share the screen space with her as he is not a tall hero. He added that Indian men are generally not too tall, but 5 feet 10 inches is a decent height. On the other side, Dippy looks great wearing those high heels. In fact it was Saif who insisted Dippy to remove those stilettos for the scenes where they were together as he did not want Deepika to tower over him.
