    Deepika Padukone On Her Bollywood Journey: I Walked Into The Unknown

    Deepika On Her Bollywood Journey: I Walked Into The Unknown

    In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Deepika said, "I think I just walked into the unknown. We didn't watch too many movies growing up, and most of my childhood went into school coursework, and professional badminton. As a family, we led a very disciplined, structured life. Everything was planned. Cinema didn't feature too much, but whenever it did, it felt familiar. I always felt like this is what I was meant to do. And it all happened very quickly."

    Talking about how her Bollywood journey began, she said, "Two years after I became a model, Farah [Khan] offered me Om Shanti Om. The rest of the journey, until a couple of years ago, was really about understanding, absorbing, and discovering Bollywood and myself, and making my mistakes along the way."

    Her mistakes strengthened her, and she began to get more comfortable with herself. "I felt I finally understood what the medium really is, and the impact cinema can have on people and society. I began to get more comfortable with myself, and everything just started making sense to me. When you see the film fraternity as an outsider, you imagine it to be a certain way, and I was not fearful anymore," she said.
