Deepika Padukone (pronounced [d̪iːpɪkaː pəɖʊkoːɳ]; born 5 January 1986) is a Danish–born Indian movie actress and model. One of the most popular and highest-paid Indian celebrities, she has established a career in Bollywood films, and is the recipient of two Filmfare Awards. [1]

Early life[change | change source]

Deepika Padukone was born on 5 January 1986 in Copenhagen,Denmark to Konkani-speaking parents.[2][3] Her father, Prakash, is a former badminton player of international repute, and her mother, Ujjala, is a travel agent.[4] Her younger sister, Anisha, is a golfer.[5] Her paternal grandfather, Ramesh, was a secretary of the Mysore Badminton Association.[6] The family relocated to Bangalore, India, when Padukone was a year old.[7] She was educated at Bangalore's Sophia High School, and completed her pre-university education at Mount Carmel College.[8] She subsequently enrolled at the Indira Gandhi National Open University for a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology, but later quit it due to scheduling conflicts with her modelling career.[7][9]

Career[change | change source]

Padukone's first screen appearance was in Himesh Reshammiya's music video "Naam Hai Tera" in 2005.[10] Padukone made her film debut by playing the titular protagonist in the Kannada film Aishwarya (2006).[11] Her first Hindi film release came the following year with Farah Khan's melodrama Om Shanti Om, in which she played dual roles opposite Shah Rukh Khan.[12] For her performance, she won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut and also received a Best Actress nomination at the same ceremony. Her sole film role in 2008 was as one of Ranbir Kapoor's love interests in Bachna Ae Haseeno.[13]

Padukone's first film release of 2009, the kung fu comedy Chandni Chowk to China opposite Akshay Kumar, proved to be a box office flop.[14][15] However, her next release, Imtiaz Ali's romance Love Aaj Kal grossed INR1.2 billion (US$20 million) worldwide,[16] and garnered her a second Best Actress nomination at Filmfare.[17] Padukone had five film releases in 2010. The comedy Housefull was a commercial success,[16] though her other four releases that year failed at the box office.[18] The series of poorly received films continued with both her 2011 releases, the drama Aarakshan and the comedy Desi Boyz.[19]

The role of an impulsive party-girl in Homi Adajania's Cocktail (2012) proved to be a breakthrough for Padukone.[19][20] Critics praised her performance and she received several acting nominations for it.[21][22] The year 2013 was key for Padukone; three of her four releases that year earned over INR1 billion (US$17 million) in India.[23] Among these were two of the highest-grossing Bollywood films of all time—the romantic comedy Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and the action-comedy Chennai Express.[24][25] She also won the Filmfare Award for Best Actress for portraying Leela, a character based on Juliet, in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013).[26][27][28] In 2014, Padukone appeared in Kochadaiiyaan, an animation film in Tamil, which was shot using motion capture technology.[29] Also that year, she played a young widow in Adajania's Finding Fanny and a bar dancer in the ensemble heist film Happy New Year.[30][31] The following year, Padukone starred alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan in Shoojit Sircar's critically acclaimed comedy-drama Piku (2015).[32][33]
