From the enchanting dreamy girl Shanti to the bold and
beautiful Leela, she has made every character look effortless. This past
year has seen her reach new heights of success with the birthday girl's
films created new box-office records. Today, it's a moment of delight
to celebrate the birthday of the queen of hearts - Deepika Padukone
was born in Denmark to yesteryear badminton star Prakash Padukone and
Ujjala Padukone. She has a younger sister Anisha who is a golfer by
profession. When Deepika was just one, her family shifted to Bangalore
and hence she completed her schooling there. Her life revolved around
studies and badminton until she decided to move on and step into the
world of glitz and glamour. This wasn't easy as she had to leave her
Bachelors of Art midway due to her modelling assignments. Known
primarily for appearing in television commercials like Liril, she walked
the ramp for the Lakme Fashion Week in early 2005, and then competed in
the Kingfisher Fashion Awards to win the Model of the Year award.
Padukone first appeared on the silver screen with a Kannada film, Aishwarya
, where she played the title role and the film was a hit. She was later offered her Bollywood debut film, Farah Khan
's Om Shanti Om
We must say that the film proved to be an extremely effective way for
Miss Padukone to step into Bollywood, as she won the Best Debutant Award
in most of the award functions that year. Moreover, her chemistry with
Shah Rukh Khan
was much appreciated as well. With a few more films
releasing in the coming years, this dusky beauty had to maintain
patience to build a strong foundation in the Tinsel Town. With 2009's Love Aaj Kal
and 2010's Housefull
being the only commercially successful films to her name after her debut, 2012's Cocktail
saw a turning point in her career; playing Veronica was a complete
challenge and she passed the acid test with positive reviews for her
performance and won a lot of appreciation from audiences and critics
Year 2013 saw a major breakthrough in Padukone's career as
she delivered blockbuster hit after hit with new records. The success
series started with the multistarrer Race 2
followed by Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
alongside ex-flame Ranbir Kapoor
and Chennai Express
with Shah Rukh Khan
. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
was a musical hit crossing 100 crores, while Chennai Express
saw the SRK-Deepika magic once again and it went on to be the first film to cross the B.O. record of 3 Idiots
. Padukone's most recent release was Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela
opposite Ranveer Singh
. The movie was another take on William
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and was well accepted by the audience.
The film might have not set new records, but it surely added new
feathers to Deepika's acting and dancing skills.
been in the limelight due to her link ups and break ups, but her present
status shows her to be either single or dating her co-star Ranveer
Singh. Since we are still unaware of the real side of these rumors, lets
give the birthday girl the much needed privacy in her relationships and
enjoy a few songs that she has to her credit!
Like the previous year, we hope to see more of Deepika in the coming years and wish her much luck for her upcoming venture Happy New Year
with the Om Shanti Om
duo Farah Khan
and Shah Rukh Khan
. With this we, at BollyCurry, wish the dusky beauty a fantastic birthday.
