Bollywood's one of the top actress Deepika Padukone started her career in the glamour world as a model.
Although, there has been a saying in Bollywood that model can't become good actors or actresses but Deepika Padukone certainly proved the notion wrong.
"Well, there is a myth that exists in the country about models not being good actors. It is high time that we realise it's all a fallacy," said Deepika.
Actress Deepika Padukone whose latest hit was Happy New Year has been offering some back to back hits including Cocktail, Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Ram Leela and the diva seems to be unstoppable.
Nevertheless, Deepika Padukone too has a role model and it's none other than former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who also started her career as a model.
"I definitely look up to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as a strong role model and the fact that she had always been my inspiration is not hidden. I have loved her from childhood days, watching and admiring her advertisements, her Miss World triumph and everything else. If by God's grace, my career shapes up even 1 percent of what Ash did with her work, I would be blessed," asserted Deepika.
