Recently in an interview, Deepika Padukone spoke about her journey in the industry so far. She said:

“I had no training, no mentors. I worked it all out on my own. Sure, I had some failures, personal and professional. But sheer determination fuelled me. It was empowering.”

 

She added:

“As a family, we saw maybe two films a year. I don’t know why, but whenever I watched a movie, I knew that one day I’d be doing this. I’d start with modeling and then go into films. And that’s exactly how it happened.”

 

Everyone has their own way of dealing with stardom and this is how Deepika has dealt with it. She said:

“When I’m complimented for my work, but you know what’s most rewarding for me? When people tell me I haven’t changed. That I am still myself.”

 

Deepika has also turned a producer with her latest film Chhapaak in which she portrays the role of Lakshmi Aggarwal, who is an acid attack survivor. The movie is being directed by the Raazi fame filmmaker Meghna Gulzar. Vikrant Massey had been roped in to play her partner who supports her through thick and thin.

 

This is the first time that Meghna and Deepika will be working together.

 

Deepika was so excited that she even shared the look on her social media account:

 

Deepika has been giving everything to this project. She even confessed how the movie has been an emotional journey. Chhapaak is slated to release on January 10, 2020.

 

Deepika will also be seen playing Ranveer’s onscreen wife in ’83. The actress also stole away our hearts with her amazing looks at Cannes 2019.
