Being the daughter of Prakash Padukone, many thought that Deepika too would be a figure in the sports industry. Deepika Padukone has since proven that it is not completely necessary to follow family hierarchy if you are good at something.
And good here is of course an understatement because this Piku star has gone leaps and bounds ahead of good and landed herself in every director’s to-work-with list! She is just as pretty and classy as she is with her acting and dancing skills, and together, she is a total Bollywood superstar.
Making her Bollywood debut alongside none other than King Khan in the 2009 film Om Shanti Om, Padukone was a fan favourite from the beginning. She received Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut, along with many others for her role in the movie. Since then Padukone has been a crucial figure in the Indian cinema.
Padukone’s chartbuster movies include Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and the controversial Padmaavat. She has recently married long time lover Ranveer Singh in an all-elaborate and complete grandeur filled affair in Lake Como and social media was rife with their pictures and all the coverage from this most awaited wedding of the year.
Padukone and Singh have also shared some significant time on-screen and given us moments of unflinching romance to relinquish forever, like we fondly remember in Ram Leela or even the reclusive ones in Bajirao Mastani. Padukone has also been a master of style and has made bold statements with her sense of fashion and her stylebook looks on the red carpet time and again. From the bold party animal of Dum Maaro Dum to the carefree Bong girl of Piku, somewhere Deepika Padukone redefined the superstar tag and we are all in awe of this new definition.
