MUMBAI: Deepika Padukone, who is one of the highest paid actresses of Bollywood, says she does not understand monetary investments as her father and former badminton champion Prakash Padukone manages her finances.     

Addressing reporters on the sidelines of an event here, the "Piku" star revealed that she never used to get pocket money as a child.        

"My father takes care of my investments so I don't know much about it (where and how the money is invested). I am not too much of a tech person. I don't understand what apps are about. I prefer clicking pictures and then printing them and putting them in album," Deepika told reporters here.          

She, however, could not recall her first investment.    

"I give money to my father and he takes good care of it. When I was small, I did not use to get pocket money," she added.           

Deepika was talking at the launch of Axis Bank's first prepaid wallet, "Lime".
