When Deepika was still a child, she had always aspired to follow in her fathers’ footsteps and become a professional badminton player. When the actress entered her tenth standard in Sophia High School, she decided to accept a modeling job, and the rest, as they say, is history. Padukone started appearing in television and print ads across India, and that is when she caught the eye of Farah Khan.

Deepika earned Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for her breakout role.
Enamored by her talent and beauty, Yash Raj Productions signed her for Bachna Ae Haseeno in which she starred opposite Ranbir Kapoor. The film proved to be super successful at the box office, and during the press tour, many started speculating the two co-stars were in a relationship.
Between 2010 and 2011 the Bollywood star struggled at churning out a hit movie. This is also the time when she started battling with depression, something which she has been vocal about. She finally caught a break in 2012 when she appeared in the movie Cocktail starring Saif Ali Khan, which did very well at the box office.

Even though the movie may not have been a money spinner at the worldwide box office, however, it did put Deepika on the international forefront. Fans and critics praised the actor for speaking in ‘Indian English’ rather than borrowing an accent from the West for her Hollywood debut.
In 2010-11, Deepika experienced a dip in both her personal and professional life. She broke up with her then-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, and her films were getting mixed reviews. Many actors use the dreaded D-word when they’re going through a rough patch, for Deepika; however, it was at a completely different level.
In 2014, the actress spoke at a session at the India Today Conclave. The session was called ‘Being Number One’.

Back then, little did the world know what was going on behind that, awe-inspiring demeanor of this superstar.
In January 2015, Padukone revealed that she was battling with depression. She opened up about battling depression and anxiety and taking medication and clinical counseling during the same time when she was speaking to the world about being number one.
Later, the stunning actress established an institution to help other people battling mental health issues. The reason for opening a mental health center for people was that she didn’t want anyone else to struggle the way she had.
With her beauty and charm, it is no surprise that actors and professional athletes all tried their best to woo her. Deepika Padukone has dated cricketers M.S Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh. After breaking up with Yuvraj, she started dating Ranbir Kapoor, which didn’t last for very long either, although the two have remained friends. Padukone went on to date the handsome Muzamil Ibrahim, and their relationship wasn’t destined to last very long.
Then entered the Ram to her Leela, Ranveer Singh. Deepika and Ranveer met and starred on the set of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, which is a Bollywood adaption of Romeo and Juliet. Even though the movie had a tragic ending, their love story flourished and resulted in a happy ending.
After six years of courtship, the two tied the knot at Lake Como, Italy, on 14th and 15th November 2018. After a destination wedding, they had receptions in India as well.
The actress has endorsed brands like Coco-Cola, Kingfisher, Asian Paints, L’Oréal Paris, Nescafe, Yamaha, Maybelline, and many others. She has also signed deals with international designers as well ever since her Hollywood debut, which significantly contributes to Deepika Padukone’s net worth.
