"I think the role is more important. It is a misconception that a glamorous role doesn't require acting talent. It's a bit strange, because I think at the end of the day, any kind of film - whether it is glamorous or 'de-glam' (non-glamorous) - requires acting. Acting is acting.

"For example, people think I gave a brilliant performance as Veronica in Cocktail, but it was also a glamorous role. For me, it is about the role and the film, not glamour," she added.

Padukone received public and critical acclaim for her portrayal of Veronica in Cocktail.

The 26-year-old actress, who has been enlisted to spearhead online promotions of Race 2, said the box office success of a film is also important to her.

"When you set out to do a film, one hopes that your performance is appreciated and the film also goes on to do well. Fortunately with me, in Cocktail, I got both. The film did well and the performance was appreciated. I hope this happens in all my films," she said.

The actress made her debut in Om Shanti Om with Shah Rukh Khan and is currently shooting with him for the forthcoming Chennai Express.

Starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham and Anil Kapoor, Race 2 releases on January 25, 2013.
