Deepika Padukone: News

One of the highest-paid leading ladies in India, Deepika Padukone has been at the forefront of Indian cinema since her Bollywood debut in 2007. A badminton player turned actress, her rise to one of India's most popular persons is an inspiration for those from a non-film background. Born on January 5, 1986, in Copenhagen, Padukone grew up in Bengaluru. Daughter of legendary Indian badminton player Prakash Padukone and Ujjala, she was a national-level badminton player herself. However, in 10th grade, she decided to pursue modeling instead of badminton and began her career as a full-time model in 2004. She made her runway debut in 2005 and was part of the Kingfisher Calendar in2006. She made her feature film debut in 2006 with the Kannada film 'Aishwarya.' Her success as a model soon attracted offers from Bollywood, and she made her debut in Farah Khan's 'Om Shanti Om' in 2007. For her performance, she received the Filmfare Award for Best Debut Actress in 2008. Although she had a debut to remember, the next few years until 2012 were full of struggles for her. Her performance in Homi Adajania's 'Cocktail' in 2012 revitalized her career. In 2013, she firmly established her status in Bollywood with films such as 'RamLeela,' 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,' 'Chennai Express,' etc. Padukone has won the Filmfare Award for Best Actress twice (2014, 2016) for her performances in 'RamLeela' and 'Piku.' In 2018, she was in 'Time 100' - a list of 100 most influential people in the world.
