Being the daughter of a renowned badminton player, Padukone was born with a silver spoon; however her passion for fashion took her down the modeling lane which in return paved her way into Bollywood. The fashion icon gave her first try at acting with Aishwariya, a Kannada film, and debuted in Bollywood with SRK's Om Shanti Om, for which the diva received the Best Female Debut Award. However Ms. Padukone's career suffered from minor hiccups like Bachna Ae Haseeno and Housefull yet the bombshell got back on track with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express, both of which rank among the highest-grossing Bollywood films of all time. She ended up sweeping almost all the acting awards for 2013.
Deepika being a private person is usually tight-lipped about her steamy affairs, however according to sources, model Nihar Pandya was apparently Deepika Padukone's first boyfriend in Mumbai. The two had met in an acting school in Mumbai in 2005. The dusky babe was also speculated dating the famous cricketer Yuvraj Singh. Later in 2011, pictures of Padukone kissing Kingfisher scion Siddharth Mallya at an IPL match made the rounds on the web.
The only relationship Deepika admitted being in was with Bollywood hearthrob Ranbir Kapoor. The two were involved so seriously, that the hottie even carved his initials on the scruff of her neck. However after three years the 'It' couple of Btown called it quits due to Ranbir's betrayal.
The on-screen chemistry between Ranveer Singh and Deepika was well-liked by Indian audiences in Ram-Leela, but Deepika being shaky after a bad breakup, chose to be low-key with this one. Nonetheless, the duo was spotted getting cozy on her birthday in New York.
Even though Deepika might be among the highest-paid actresses in Bollywood, she keeps herself closely entangled to religion and is often photographed visiting temples and shrines.
