Recalling her Bollywood journey, Deepika Padukone said she always dreamt of being an actress and doing films. Deepika said, “I had no training, no mentors. I worked it all out on my own. Sure, I had some failures, personal and professional. But sheer determination fuelled me. It was empowering.”
Deepika Padukone and her younger sister, Anisha Padukone watched two films a year in their childhood. The diva always loved being in front of the camera and she knew that was her calling! Talking about what drove her to films, Deepika said, “As a family, we saw maybe two films a year. I don’t know why. But whenever I watched a movie, I knew that one day I’d be doing this. I’d start with modelling, then go into films. And that’s exactly how it happened.”
Deepika Padukone is one of the most humble and down to earth actress the generation has. She’s immensely grateful to her parents for letting her live the life she always wanted and follow her dreams. “When I’m complimented for my work, but you know what’s most rewarding for me? When people tell me I haven’t changed. That I am still myself,” Deepika concluded.
