Deepika Padukone

Deepika was born into a Konkani family in Denmark, but her family moved back to Bengaluru when she was 11 months old. Inspired by her badminton legend father, Prakash Padukone, she started playing badminton at a young age and played State-level badminton till the 10th standard.

Deepika made her first catwalk when she was 17 years old. Deepika won the “Model of the Year” award at the 5th annual Kingfisher Fashion Awards.
In 2005, she first appeared in the song “Naam Hai Tera” from Himesh Reshammiya‘s hit album ‘Aap Kaa Surroor.’ Though Deepika was supposed to make her Bollywood debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s ‘Saawariya’, Bhansali played it safe and opted for Anil Kapoor‘s daughter’s formula, and replaced her with Sonam Kapoor.
Farah Khan approached Deepika to sign her for her film ‘Happy New Year‘, but later on the film was canceled (later released in 2014 starring Deepika) and she was later signed up for ‘Om Shanti Om’ (2007), which became a blockbuster and made her star overnight.
