Deepika Padukone - Hot Pictures, Latest News, Gossip & More

Deepika Padukone, as we are all aware by now, is the daughter of the former world badminton champion - Prakash Padukone. Deepika grew up to be a model turned actress with her debut film Om Shanti Om opposite Shah Rukh Khan. She had great dreams to make it big in the industry. Since her first film, she has been a hot sensation. She has been involved with Ranbir Kapoor and had a breakup, which was all over the media as everyone speculated about what went wrong. Hmm..but our svelt actres has moved on to higher pastures, should we say, going around with Sidharth Mallya, the son of liquor baron Vijay Mallya. No wonder she is the brand ambassador of their IPL team Bangalore.

To add more mirch masala to her life, Karan Johar is now planning to bring Deepika and Ranbir together again in his next untitled film, produced under his banner Dharma Productions and to be directed by Ayan Mukherji. Apparently, Katrina was the first choice for the role, but due to the clash of dates couldn't do it and so Deepika agreed to accept the role. Coincidentally, Katrina was or is Ranbir's next after his breakup with Deepika. But I think they looked kinda cute together, don't you think so?




"The tattoo which was creating trouble for the beautiful Dam Maro Dum song actress Deepika Padukone proved to be a blessing in disguise. This actress who was had tattooed the name of her ex boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor on the nape of her neck was questioned about it time and again when they broke up.

There were rumors that she had even removed it but everyone’s mouth was shut when she confirmed its presence on the Koffee with Karan show. However, again due to the same tattoo, the first Tattoo Convention in India organizers, named her as the ‘Tattoo queen’. Sadly though, she could not attend the event
