Today, we have brought a special feature for all the Deepika
Padukone fans out there. Check out her pictures below and you will

If you'all are going gaga over the current achievements of Deepika, then you must look back to see, how Deepika Padukone used to look in her debut film and made the nation crazy, with her sharp features.
Om Shanti Om Was Not Her Debut Film
In 2006, Deepika Padukone signed her first film ‘Aishwarya'
which was a Kannada film, in which she played the titular role.
Post that, Deepika signed Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om.
Why Farah Casted Deepika
Not many of you would know that Farah loved Deepika in Himesh
Reshammiya's music video, Naam Tera Tera and then she decided to
rope in her in Om Shanti Om opposite Shahrukh Khan.
She Was Supposed To Debut In SLB's Saawariya
Reportedly Sanjay Leela Bhansali had shortlisted Deepika for his
film Saawariya. However, later, he decided to go with Ranbir Kapoor
and Sonam Kapoor. Interestingly, Deepika's Bollywood debut film ‘Om
Shanti Om' released on the same day as Saawariya and it fared
better than Saawariya.
Did You Know?
Did you know that before entering Bollywood, she has been a
student of Anupam Kher's acting school and the man behind her
sensuous dance moves is none other than dance maestro Shiamak
Fortune’s Favourite Child
We won't be wrong if we say that Deepika is the fortune's
favourite child. Deepika made her Bollywood debut opposite Shahrukh
Khan and it did well. With her tall & perfect figure, she left
many guys in awe!
SRK's On Deepika
A few years ago, during the promotion of Happy New Year,
Shahrukh didn't hesitate to praise Deepika and had told, "She has
paved the way for her own success and that she always had it in her
to be a 'star'."
Big B's First Reaction On Seeing Deepika In OSO
SRK had also revealed an interesting story, "I think Deepika was
always a star. Since she was new, we did the 'Aankhon mein teri'
song and we showed it to Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan). He said, 'She
is a very huge star'. She was a supermodel at that time, so it's
not something we (Farah and I) have done."
'She Has Made Wonderful Choices'
"I haven't worked with her for seven years, but I think she has
it all. As a friend, I told her that 'Always do a film where you
feel comfortable with the people around'. She has made wonderful
choices -- whether it's 'Cocktail' or 'Finding Fanny'. She has
chosen some highly commercial films too; she has made the right
choices," he said.
Deepika On Working With SRK In OSO
During the promotion of OSO, Deepika had mentioned how SRK
helped her throughout the shooting and had said, "He never made me
uncomfortable... never ... he would sit with me before every
scene... and do my lines with me."
Deepika Was Initially Scared To Meet SRK
Deepika said, "I was really scared to meet him that first time.
Farah took me to meet Shahrukh to his home in Mumbai. The first
time I went to meet him, I was dressed like a Yash Chopra heroine,
in a white shalwar kameez, because that was the impression I had:
to be a successful actress in Bollywood, you had to have blow dried
straight hair and wear a white suit."
Deepika's First Meeting With Shahrukh Khan
"I (Deepika Padukone) remember the first time, the gates to
Mannat opened and Farah took me to meet him. I'll never forget that
visual in my head. I didn't know any better about how to deal with
these relationships that we had built over a period of
'I've Become More Comfortable'
"But now, today, I understand what they meant back then. I have
also become more comfortable, I have also realised that
relationships are very, very important. So today, I use that offer,
if I may say so." Deepika had told a leading daily.
For Deepika, SRK Is A Gentleman
No wonder Shahrukh Khan is always referred to as a 'Gentleman'!
Her first meeting with him, says everything, doesn't it? Deepika
and SRK have worked in films like Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express and
their latest release was Farah's Happy New Year. Cheers to their
Be it her professional life or personal life, Deepika is highly
disciplined and dedicated and that's what we love the most about
her! Undoubtedly, she is making everything on her own and living
her life on her own terms and conditions.
She is a winner all the way and will always be our favourite!
