Career Minutiae

Deepika Padukone’s journey was a smooth one. In 2005, she made her runway debut at Lakme Fashion Week. The following year, she was featured in the Kingfisher Calendar. She gained wider recognition when she was featured in the music video for Himesh Reshammiya’s song ‘Naam Hai Tera’.

She soon began to receive film offers. However, not the one to jump into anything hastily, she instead enrolled for an acting course at Anupam Kher Film Academy to train herself for the job.

Deepika Padukone made her debut in 2006 with a Kannada film ‘Aishwarya’ opposite Upendra. Directed by Indrajit Lankesh, the film was a major commercial success. Meanwhile, she had also inked a deal with Farah Khan for the Hindi film ‘Happy New Year’.

Following the big breakthrough, the film offer comes rolling to Deepika. She was cast in ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, ‘Chandni Chowk to China’ and ‘Love Aaj Kal’. While the first two performed averagely at the box office, ‘Love Aaj Kal’ was a runaway success and became the third highest-grossing film of 2009. Deepika was complimented for delivering her finest performance as Meera Pandit.

After witnessing prodigious success, Padukone dipped at the lowest of her career in 2010. Though she had five releases slated for the year, none actually did anything to accentuate her career graph. In fact, most of them bombed badly at the box office. To make matters worse, 2011 continued the sad saga of failed films in Padukone’s career as both her films ‘Aarakshan’ and ‘Desi Boyz’ miserably performed at the box office.

Deepika ended 2015 on a lofty note with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical drama ‘Bajirao Mastani’. In it, she played a warrior princess who eventually becomes Maratha General Bajirao I’s second wife. Her excellence as Mastani was lauded by the critics who found her riveting and enthralling. For the film, she learnt sword-fighting, horse-riding and Kalaripayattu. It became the fourth highest grossing Bollywood film of the year.

The phenomenal success of Deepika as an actor saw her cross boundaries as she became a star of international repute. Having made her mark in Bollywood, Deepika then eyed to make a name for herself in Hollywood. Her debut venture in Hollywood was for the 2017 action film ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ opposite Vin Diesel. She was seen in the lead role as Serena Unger. The film opened to mixed reviews.

Immensely talented and endowed as she is, Deepika has her hands full with projects. She is to set play the lead role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical drama ‘Padmavati’. Her other upcoming projects include Vishal Bhardwaj’s yet-untitled crime drama and the fourth installment of ‘xXx’ franchise, in which she would reprise her role as Serena Unger.

Here’s a look at the love affairs of Deepika,

In March 2008, Padukone began dating Ranbir Kapoor, her co-star from the film Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008). The couple broke up in November 2009. And later she started dating Ranveer Singh and on November 14, 2018, the couple tied the knot at Lake Como, Italy, in a traditional Konkani & Sindhi ceremony.
