Occupation : Actor
Deepika Padukone had the most anticipated Bollywood film debut opposite King Khan in Om Shanti Om. Daughter of renowned badminton player Prakash Padukone, Deepika was an established ramp and print model before she ventured into Bollywood. Just a few films old, Deepika has managed to get noticed for her portrayal of the modern Indian woman in films Cocktail, Love Aaj Kal, Om Shanti Om and Housefull. She has also done a few films in the south film industry. Most notably however, Deepika had made headlines with her reported link ups with actors Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and high profile cricketers MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh and most recently UB Group scion Siddharth Mallya.
I have to admit I didn't really think much about Deepika Padukone. In fact I didn't think at all, maybe only the time she said something about Ranbir Kapoor.
