Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has revealed that she loves to paint in real life, just like her character in her upcoming film Love Aaj Kal.

Deepika, who managed to make a couple of paintings during her free time while shooting, plays a fresco artist in the film.

"I love painting. I remember during my school days I would always get an A grade in art class," said the actress.

"There was a canvas and paint on the set; in between shots, I would make something. It was something very random. For me, painting is a form of relaxation and it's de-stressing," she added.

Love Aaj Kal directed by Imtiaz Ali is actor Saif Ali Khan's debut production.
