The classy diva and a superstar in her own rights, Deepika Padukone stands tall among her peers.
Age and Height
Deepika was born on 5 January 1986 and is 32 years old as of 2018. The talented actor stands 5 feet 8 inches tall.
Deepika was involved in a much-hyped relationship with actor Ranbir Kapoor, though it lasted only a year. Over the years, Deepika has been rumoured to have had affairs with multiple celebs like Siddharth Mallya and Yuvraj Singh, though she never admitted to any of them.
Deepika publicly admitted to dating co-star Ranveer Singh in 2017. The power couple married on November 2018 in a private ceremony in Italy.
Deepika was born into an affluent Konkani family of Prakash Padukone (national badminton player) and Ujjala. Though she was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, her family moved to Bengaluru soon. She has a younger sister, Anisha, who is a golfer.
Deepika turned her attention towards modelling at just 18 years of age. The Kannada film Aishwarya marked her debut, which was a major success and got her nominated for Filmfare South Best Actress. In 2007, she made her big Bollywood debut opposite Shahrukh Khan with Om Shanti Om. The film was a blockbuster and garnered Deepika with awards and popularity. After this, she signed multiple projects, most of which were commercial successes. Deepika managed well between commercial masala flicks and critically acclaimed performances. While films like Chandni Chowk to China, Billu, Lafangey Parinday, Break Ke Baad and Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey were flops, they didn't personally affect her rising career.
2013 proved to be a turnaround year for her, where she appeared in 3 blockbusters: Chennai Express, Ram-Leela and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. For the latter two, she received widespread acclaim. She struck gold again in 2015 by appearing in 3 critically-acclaimed movies: Tamasha, Piku and Bajirao Mastani; the latter two were also commercially successful.
In 2017 she went international and appeared in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. Deepika also played the titular role in the controversial but commercially-critically successful Padmavat.
Deepika has been alleged to have multiple short-lived affairs with several individuals, though she had neither admitted nor denied them. In 2015, Deepika's video for Vogue titled "My Choice" caused controversy after she was accused of promoting adultery as empowerment.
For her Bollywood debut film, Deepika won the Best Debut (female) award from Filmfare, IIFA, Producers Guild Award and Screen Award. She went on to be nominated 6 times for Filmfare Best Actress Award, winning it for Ram-Leela and Piku. She has also won 10 Screen Awards in various categories like Best Actor (Female), Best Entertainer and Best Style Icon. Internationally, she was nominated in 4 categories in 2017 by Teen Choice Awards. For her activities outside films, like women empowerment, health & fitness, environmentalism, and general style statement, she has also been awarded numerous times.
Deepika charges Rs. 14 crore per film as in 2018, making her the highest paid actress in India. She had a brief stint as a badminton player in school but soon turned her attention towards modelling.
