Role Model

India Today - - MAIL -

The hefty earn­ings of Deepika Padukone’s films are a barom­e­ter of her ris­ing pop­u­lar­ity in Bol­ly­wood. Hard work, in­tel­li­gence and the abil­ity to make pru­dent Deepika Padukone is def­i­nitely the new em­press of Bol­ly­wood. With three back-to-back multi-crore block­busters in her kitty, she is the cur­rent mar­ket leader in B-town. Though just six years old in the film in­dus­try, the dusky beauty has been suc­cess­ful in K. CHI­DANAND KU­MAR, via email Deepika Padukone is the reign­ing queen of Bol­ly­wood, thanks to her pan-In­dian looks and amaz­ing tal­ent. She tran­scends all bar­ri­ers of states, lan­guages and cul­tures in In­dia. Be it a Ra­jasthani, Ma­ha­rash­trian, Ben­gali or south In­dian girl, Deepika fits into any kind of role im­mac­u­lately. SAN­JIV GUPTA, Perth, Aus­tralia choices have helped Deepika be­come one of the top ac­tresses of Bol­ly­wood. The film in­dus­try is com­pet­i­tive and ruth­less, but like her fa­ther, bad­minton cham­pion Prakash Padukone, Deepika’s tenac­ity and per­sis­tence will help her at­tain greater heights in her ca­reer. VI­JAI PANT, Hem­pur Your cover story per­fectly cap­tured the essence and per­sona of Deepika Padukone (“The New Dream Girl”, Novem­ber 11). Her abil­ity to take fail­ure in her stride, be it in her pro­fes­sional or per­sonal life, has helped her be­come the con­fi­dent, fun-lov­ing, yet in­tense girl that we see to­day. Not only have Deepika’s movies done well com­mer­cially, but crit­ics have lauded her per­for­mance as well. Even when she shares the screen with mega stars such as Shah Rukh Khan, she has man­aged to cre­ate her own iden­tity and left an im­pres­sion on the au­di­ence. This dis­tin­guishes her from her ilk. She’s not just the ‘dream girl’ as Hema Malini once was for men, she’s a role model for to­day’s women.
