Amid con­tro­ver­sies ga­lore, Deepika Padukone’s last re­lease, Pad­maa­vat opened to a great re­sponse and the ac­tor has been in a happy space since then. While she re­ceived lots of com­pli­ments from Bol­ly­wood vet­er­ans, and fans, and Pad­maa­vat be­came her sev­enth film to join the 100-crore club, yet an­other hon­our has come her way now.

The ac­tor ranks third on the The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter’s Top Ac­tors chart, which is a rank­ing of the most pop­u­lar ac­tors on Face­book, In­sta­gram, Twit­ter, Youtube and Google Plus, with global data pro­vided by so­cial me­dia an­a­lyt­ics com­pany MV Pin­dex. While Priyanka Chopra’s co-star from Bay­watch, Dwayne John­son tops the list, Kevin Hart takes the sec­ond po­si­tion and Deepika is on the third po­si­tion. This track­ing ended on Jan­uary 30, be­fore which Deepika was on the eighth po­si­tion but has now moved up to num­ber three.

A source close to the ac­tor re­veals that Deepika is thrilled with the hon­our. “Her char­ac­ter of Ser­ena from her Hol­ly­wood de­but XXX- the Re­turn of the Xan­der Cage (2017) brought in a lot of pop­u­lar­ity, mak­ing her an in­ter­na­tional name overnight. Pad­maa­vat too, was widely spo­ken about on so­cial me­dia, be­cause of the con­tro­ver­sies the film went through be­fore it re­leased. Her pop­u­lar­ity in the last two weeks sky­rock­eted and she moved up five spa­ces on the list.”

Other ac­tors who are part of the list af­ter Deepika are Mil­lie Bobby Brown, Dove Cameron, Jen­nifer Lopez, Gal Gadot and Priyanka Chopra, who now stands on eighth.

Deepika’s spokesper­son says, “Deepika Padukone’s on­line fam­ily has only grown stronger over time, and it has been over­whelm­ing for her that they keep show­er­ing her with so much love and adu­la­tion. This time, dur­ing Pad­maa­vat’s re­lease , Deepika’s fans cre­ated a unique group called DP first day first show and the hash­tag trended for hours on the re­lease day. This was un­prece­dented.”
