Deepika Padukone is the reigning queen of Bollywood with record number of blockbuster hits and some really big budget movies in the making. The actress who just launched the first song of her upcoming movie, Finding Fanny said that she will not do cameo roles in Bollywood, and why should she? Unless the actress has a worthy role deserving her high stature, the actress need not resort to doing cameo roles in movies.
Deepika Padukone is said to be charging a staggering amount of fee for her role as female lead in movies, if rumours are to be believed then she is charging somewhere around Rs 15 crores. The actress who was just a random model in Bangalore, within no time has reached a level where she is being called the reigning queen of Bollywood.
The actress was born in Copenhagen and raised in Bangalore. Deepika Padukone was born on January 05, 1986 in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the age of 11 months she moved to Mangalore, Karnataka. Deepika Padukone is the eldest daughter of legendary Badminton player Prakash Padukone. During the early '80s Prakash was the World No.1 in Badminton. Deepika's mother is a travel agent and Deepika has a younger sister, Anisha.
The actress at the beginning of her career was said to be dating a struggling model by the name Nihar Pandya, she later got into a serious committed relationship with actor Ranbir Kapoor. But after a bad break up and a regrettable tattoo in his name, the actress finally moved on and found love in Ranveer Singh's arms.
The actress's journey from Bangalore to Bollywood is definitely inspiring and here I have unraveled her inspiring journey which is a must read for all. Take a look and get inspired!
