Bollywood’s dazzling diva Deepika Padukone.
Deepika Padukone, owned 2014, pretty much the way she did it in 2013. Gucci to Alexander McQueen to a stunning Manish Malhotra, the diva rocked them all. With her movie, Happy New Year, becoming the fourth highest grossing Bollywood movie ever.
Her every increasing dominance in the world of advertising and winning over the title of ‘World’s Sexiest Woman’, she also experimented the most with her looks and fashion outings.
Undoubtedly, the lady is the most celebrated fashion diva of 2014. One of the highest-paid actresses in Bollywood.
Deepika Padukone an Indian actress and a former model has established a successful career in Bollywood films, and is cited the most popular and attractive Indian celebrities.
Padukone, the daughter of the badminton player Prakash Padukone, was born in Copenhagen and raised in Bangalore. Deepika has a younger sister Anisha, who is a golfer.
Padukone made her acting debut with the 2006 Kannada film Aishwarya. The following year, she made her Hindi film debut with the blockbuster Om Shanti Om which earned her the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award.
Padukone as “strong, someone who makes up her own mind, has motivation within herself.” Her personality is as “simple,” “grounded,” and “accessible.
The actress ranks high on various listings of the most attractive Indian celebrities. In 2008, she topped Indian Maxim ’s “Hot 100” list, and in 2012, she was named “India’s Most Beautiful Woman” by the Indian edition of People magazine. Padukone was ranked first on The Times of India ‘s listing of the “Most Desirable Woman” in 2012 and 2013, after being ranked third and fourth, respectively, for the preceding two years. In 2010 and 2014, she was named the “World’s Sexiest Woman” by the Indian edition of FHM. She has additionally featured in the UK magazine Eastern Eye ’s “World’s Sexiest Asian Women” list from 2009 to 2013, ranking among the top ten each year. In 2013, Filmfare declared her as the winner of the “Most Fashionable Star” poll, and credited her as one of the “few actresses who experiments with colours, cuts and silhouettes.” In the fitness book The Four-Week Countdown Diet, the actress was “the ultimate role model for a healthy, fit and active lifestyle.”
One of the leading ladies in Bollywood today, Deepika has been anointed as the new ‘golden girl’ of the film industry. And there is no doubt that she is aptly justifying the title. Be it her overtly fragile character in ‘Om Shanti Om,’ an outspoken girl in ‘Break Ke Baad,’ a confident girl in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ or her truly bold self in ‘Cocktail;’ Deepika has fallen at par with excellence whenever it has come about delivering best of her performance.
Her brilliant on screen performances:
Om Shanti Om
She played ‘Shantipriya’ and garnered accolades thoroughly from every angle. Deepika-Shah Rukh’s chemistry became the talk-of-the-town and the actress successfully proved her mettle with this first film of hers.
Bachna Ae Haseeno
The film was a multi-starrer but nothing could deter the lady to highlight her character in the film. Deepika’s performance in the film and the fact that how beautiful she looked on screen made her won more brownie points.
Love Aaj Kal
Imtiaz Ali’s modern age approach to love plot was played by her opposite Saif Ali Khan. The chemistry was loved by all and the film was a super hit.
Karthik Calling Karthik
This suspense movie gave Deepika a chance to explore her different side in roles, though this film was a Box office failure but her performance was thoroughly appreciated. Deepika Padukone was all captivating and intriguing as she played Farhan Akhta’s supportive lady love.
Again a multi-starrer, Housefull was all fun and watching Deepika Padukone creating confusions in turmoil made for a fresh change.
She again teamed up with Saif Ali Khan and first time with Amitabh Bachchan for this political satire. This Prakash Jha’s directorial was an average hit.
After facing bad phase in her career despite giving good performances in films like ‘Lafangey Parindey’ and ‘Break Ke Baad,’ Deepika found her gracious come-back from Cocktail. Her too-bold-to-describe persona was evidently in front of everyone to praise and Deepika looked wonderful playing Veronica on screen.
Deepika Padukone’s uber hot avatar in Race 2 made her won tremendous appreciation. Her sensuous camaraderie with Saif Ali Khan was a real visual treat.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
The bubbly, peppy Naina won the hearts of every eligible bachelor of this nation and Deepika was once again showered with all cheers and applauds. She revealed every single side of a woman’s attitude.
With this romantic-comedy fixture, both Deepika and Shah Rukh were once again seen spilling the charisma of their majestic on screen chemistry. The film broke many records of success and is still remembered for Deepika’s unique South-Indian accent.
Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela
Probably one of the most important films in her career so far, Ram Leela pushed Deepika’s credibility to an unmatchable threshold. Her vivacious chemistry with her alleged beau Ranveer Singh made the couple enlisted in one of the most loved on screen couples in Bollywood. Deepika won the Best Actress Filmfare Award for her portrayal of ‘Leela Sanera’ in the movie.
Quite an experimental film in its own, ‘Finding Fanny’ starred Deepika opposite Arjun Kapoor. While there was a buzz around the pairing of Deepika-Arjun going waste with a movie like Finding Fanny, Deepika made all her criticizers shut with her good performance along side the actors like Pankaj Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia.
Happy New Year
The film that again broke many records, Deepika Padukone flared with her sincere dedication and commitment. Despite terrible scheduling of various promotional tours, the actress made sure to sit-up and talk about her performance in the film every time she was questioned.
We wish Deepika Padukone more glorious achievements in her career.
