Deepika Padukone, Inarguably one of the most sought-after Bollywood actresses today, Deepika Padukone is the epitome of beauty, style and talent. The model-turned-actress has established herself not just as a serious actor, but a style icon and a vocal feminist as well. Having starred in a slew of box-office hits like Om Shanti Om and Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani, Deepika Padukone has made her mark in the film industry and continues to do so.
Before Acting
Born in Copenhagen to former Indian national badminton player Prakash Padukone and wife Ujjala, Deepika Padukone was a talented and sporty child growing up Bangalore, which was where the family moved to when she was one. She took part in national level badminton championships as well as state level baseball tournaments. Having been a child model from a tender age of 8, she shifted focus from having a sports career to a career in modeling when she decided the former wasn’t her aspiration. Deepika Padukone started making her name by modeling in various media, including a music video by Himesh Reshammiya called Naam Hai Tera. Soon after, she began receiving offers to star in movies.
Dream Debut
To date, Deepika Padukone has worked with the industry’s biggest names, such as actors Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, and director Farah Khan. It wasn’t too long ago when Deepika made her astounding Hindi film debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om (2007), which proved to be a phenomenal success. The fresh face of Deepika Padukone left the audience mesmerized and wanting more. Om Shanti Om was Deepika’s second acting gig after Aishwarya (2006), a Kannada film by Indrajit Lankesh which had also seen commercial success.
Years of Duds
The success of Deepika Padukone was not without some misses. Although her debut went better than anyone could dream of, with Om Shanti Om earning the star her very first Filmfare award for Best Female Debut and a nomination into the coveted Best Actress category, her subsequent movie roles failed to match the success. With the exception of Love Aaj Kal (2009), it seemed that every movie she did either did not perform as expected or garnered harsh criticism of her acting. Up until 2012, it was tough luck for Deepika Padukone.
The Success
However, with a multitude of acting gigs under her belt, Deepika Padukone was waiting to show the world just how much she had learned and grown as an actor. Her big break finally came in 2012, when she starred in Cocktail (2012) which became a box-office hit. Deepika Padukone was particularly praised and received nominations for her acting talents in the movie. The golden year for Deepika was in 2013, when she acted in 4 consecutive box office hits in a single year and picked up a Filmfare award for Best Actress for Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013). Two of the movies she acted in that year, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013) and Chennai Express (2013), would rank among the highest-grossing Bollywood films of all-time. On top of the financial success of the movies, Deepika Padukone also gained positive reviews from critics, earning herself some much-needed recognition for her acting skills and proving to the world that she was indeed more than just a pretty face.
Following the triumphant year of 2013, Deepika Padukone continued starring in successful movies like Kochadaiiyaan (2014), a Tamil film in which she starred alongside Rajinikanth, Finding Fanny (2014) and Piku (2015), a movie praised for its feminist tone. Deepika Padukone continues making films that we are waiting to hit the cinemas for. With a lot more experience gained, it’s possible that the best movie from Deepika Padukone is yet to come.
