Today, we have brought a special feature for all the Deepika Padukone fans out there. Check out her pictures below and you will know what it is..
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 Davar.
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 time."
'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 bonding!
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!
