Deepika Padukone is a popular Indian actress who has worked for more than a decade and a half. She earned a name for herself in the film industry. She began by appearing in television advertisements, modeling, and background dance. She earned her first film break in Kannada with Aishwarya, and then she landed the title part in Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om alongside Shah Rukh Khan.
In her remarkable career, the actress has appeared in films like ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Bajirao Mastani, ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Ram Leela’, and ‘Padmaavat’, as well as ground-breaking films such as ‘Chhapaak’ and ‘Piku’. Not only in Bollywood, but DP has made her name in Hollywood too. She recently was a presenter at the 95th Academy Awards. Her journey has been incredible and she has way more to go ahead. But we cannot forget her iconic role as Shanti Priya.
In an interview, Deepika revealed how she got the role. She said, “Farah Khan, who is the director I debuted with, saw this photoshoot and brought it to Shah Rukh Khan. n Australia, he was filming Chak De! India. Farah grabbed these images and handed them to Shah Rukh, telling him, "She's the face. "I discovered the face".”
Deepika continued further saying, “They were seeking for a new face and, mind you, a double role of one character who is like the old world Bollywood heroine Hema Malini or Wahida Rehman, and the other role was this young Indian modern woman. She took the images to Shah Rukh without auditioning or meeting me." Deepika further stated that SRK asked Farah if she was okay with her decision, and the next thing she knew, she was working with India's biggest superstar Shah Rukh Khan and one of India's biggest female filmmakers in her debut Bollywood film, without auditioning.”
Deepika has never looked back since the film was a great commercial hit. She collaborated with Farah Khan on another film, Happy New Year, which was also a big success. Deepika has appeared in four films with SRK since then including ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Happy New Year’, and the most recent hit 'Pathaan'.
Next Deepika will be seen in ‘Fighter’ with Hrithik Roshan and ‘Project K’ alongside Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan.
