Nearly 70 million people follow Deepika Padukone on Instagram, and she has several accolades, including three Filmfare. Deepika Padukone, who has been a part of Bollywood for 15 years, is one of its highest-paid actors this week. Not only in movies but also in other fields, Deepika has blazed a road. She just transitioned into production with her own business, Ka Productions. As a jury member at the Cannes film festival, she is also a well-known face.
She was already a well-known model when she made her acting debut in the Kannada film Aishwarya. She was also competing at the national level in badminton while still a teenager. No big surprise there—she is the daughter of badminton legend Prakash Padukone. She has also contributed in silence to a JNU student rally and supported other political and social issues. She performed in her own play, Chhapaak, as a victim of an acid assault. She once acknowledged that she had been receiving therapy for depression and pushed other people who were also suffering from the condition to do the same. She is now regarded as an ambassador for mental health.
Deepika Padukone signed up to star in Red Chillies Entertainment’s delightful melodrama Om Shanti Om. Farah Khan’s quirky plot has Deepika as two distinct personalities who resemble one another despite having been born decades apart. For her work, she won the Best Debut (Female) Filmfare award. She hasn’t looked back since the movie’s 2007 release.
In 2009, she starred in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal, which earned her a nomination for Best Actress at the Filmfare Awards. This was her next notable movie. She began appearing in the financially successful movie Housefull the next year, in 2010. Sadly, 2011 was a dreary, unmemorable year, then Cocktail arrived in 2012, and she once more showed her mettle.
