    Deepika Padukone's name features in the list of the top reigning actresses in Bollywood. With the stupendous success of her last film Padmaavat where she played the role of queen Padmavati, her position has cemented further and she is one of the most sought-after leading ladies in recent times. Post Padmaavat, Deepika was to do a film with Irrfan Khan. However, Irrfan's illness has put this project on a backburner as of now as the actor recuperates in London.
