When she appeared in a song for Himesh Reshamiya’s album, hardly we have thought that Ms. Padukone is going to steal our hearts forever. From Om Shanti Om’s diva look to Piku’s girl-next-door appearance, she made her mark like no one else did in Bollywood. And, how can we forget the “Leela” and “Mastani,” which compelled us to love her even more.
Though all the characters she played were adorable or glamorous, she also made sure that they are strong, confident and impactful. And, to be honest, each of her characters still inspires me, be it ‘Vernoica,’ ‘Naina’ or any other.
Her Fashion Sense
Being the owner of several prestigious awards and referred to as one of the prettiest actresses in the B-Town, she is truly a fashionista. However, unlike other style icons, her choice of fashion is something which is loved and adored by the audience of all genders and without any age barriers. Be it sarees or gowns, be it pantsuits to casual outfits, she knows to carry each of them with the same elegance. Not to forget her dimples and the trendsetting messy bun that was like the icing on the cake.
Her adorable PDAs
Probably she is the only actress in Bollywood who keeps her relationship status up front to the media. Whether it’s a love-breakup saga with Ranbir Kapoor or cute PDA’s with Ranveer Singh, she never believed in hiding, and it is one of those aspects about her personality that make her a confident and “be-as-you-are” type woman. She taught every girl out there to express, be it love, sadness, depression or anger.
Deepika was the first actress who decided to talk about her depression and its phases in front of media as she believed it’s a normal phenomenon, which can happen with any woman or man. Her confidence and idea about depression ignited women to a large extent. She is often seen breaking stereotypes, and her video “My Choice” is one of those examples. She also broke the age-old trend of actresses being paid less than the actors as she was given more amounts for Piku than Amitabh Bachchan and Irfan Khan.
Carrying the poised confidence and calm attitude with a dimpled smile on face and success on the eyes is not everyone’s game. But, Deepika being Deepika knows how to carry it like a child’s play, and this is what makes her our evergreen crush.
Wish you a very happy birthday girl. Keep inspiring us, always!
