Deepika Padukone Biography
Deepika Padukone was born in Mangalore, Karnataka in the year 1986. She is the most celebrated Indian model and an upcoming actress.

Daughter of a former World badminton Champion Prakash Padukone and mother Ujjala Padukone, Deepika grew up into a sultry model with dreams in her eyes to make it big in showbiz industry. Though she played badminton during her school days and reached to the level of a State player, she did not take her game to the national level as she had set her sights on the glamorous world of showbiz.

Pursuing her dreams, Deepika Padukone quickly became a model endorsing leading brands like Liril soap, Limca, Close-Up toothpaste, Kingfisher and several other products, which include international cosmetics giant Maybelline. The pretty svelte model won numerous awards for her modeling style. Her sensuous photographs appearing on the 2006 Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar has virtually proved that she is indeed a supermodel in her own right.
She was chosen as the ‘Model of the Year’ by Kingfisher at its Fashion Awards; and further was awarded the ‘Female Model of the Year’ award in commercial assignments category and ‘Fresh Face of the Year’ at Idea Zee Fashion F Awards.

Deepika Padukone entered film industry with a Kannada film, “Aishwarya” in 2006 starring opposite Kannada hero, Upendra. The following year she bagged three Bollywood films, “Om Shanti Om”, “Pirate” and “Delhi 6″. She has also appeared in a musical video, “Aap Ka Suroor” by Himesh Reshammiya.

This pretty girl has a long way to go in Bollywood and many predict that she will be the next big thing in Bollywood.

Over the years, she has modeled for such Indian brand names as Liril, Dabur Lal powder, Close-Up toothpaste and Limca, and has been “brand ambassador” for the Jewels of India retail jewelery show.
