The name Deepika Padukone needs no introduction! She is not only famous in India, but is also a well-known celebrity internationally. Today we bring some rare behind the scenes pictures of Deepika, specially for her die-hard fans!
It is a known fact that Deepika Padukone made her acting debut with Om Shanti Om opposite Shahrukh Khan but not many know that she was supposed to make her debut in Priydarshan's film Pirate, which did not materialise.
Later, Sanjay Leela Bhansali approached her for Saawariya where she would have romanced Ranbir Kapoor. But Sanjay changed his mind later and took Sonam Kapoor in the movie...(good for Deepika as the film was a big flop!)
Surprisingly, when many actresses love to boast about their struggle, Deepika Padukone says that she doesn't feel that she struggled in Mumbai."I won't say I have struggled in Mumbai, but everyday has been a new day for me. I have learnt a lot in all these years in the industry,'' Deepika told a leading daily.
Deepika Padukone further added, ''Coming from a different city, having a sports background, entering an industry that I am totally unaware about, has been difficult, but I am settled now. Today I maintain my own house and of course, my career - everything has been totally different than what I saw or learnt during my growing up days.''
On the work front, Deepika Padukone is busy with the shooting of her debut Hollywood film xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage, which also stars Vin Diesel.
