Get To Know Deepika Padukone Better On Her Birthday
It’s Deepika’s 30th birthday and while you may know that, here’s what you don’t know about her.
Deepika Padukone made her debut as an actress in the Kannada film Aishwarya in 2006, which was a big hit. The romantic comedy turned out to be a huge success at the box office.
Deepika was supposed to make her debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya. But then came the ‘oops’ moment. Bhansali decided to sign Sonam instead.
The tables turned when Om Shanti Om released on the same day as Saawariya and we all know how they did at the box office.
The former model was spotted by Farah Khan in a Himesh Reshammiya music video in Naam Hai Tera. Woah! Himesh had a hand in Deepika’s success.
It’s no surprise that Deepika was a national level badminton player but she’s also got other talents up her sleeve. She has been a state level baseball player too. No wonder the ball’s always in her court, guys!
She is the first actress ever to have delivered four consecutive Rs 100-crore hits! Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Ram Leela.
