MAYBE BECAUSE I AM FROM A SPORTS BACKGROUND, I DON’T GIVE UP EASILY. I AM A  FIGHTER.


In an industry as fiercely competitive as Bollywood, being top gun is no mean feat. However, Deepika Padukone has made the top spot her own and that too with so much ease and panache. Daughter of the famous Badminton player Prakash Padukone, she followed in her father’s footsteps and took up the same sport, before turning her attention to modelling and movies. DP’s career began with a Kannada movie before she shifted to Bollywood and there has been no looking back, since!


There are so many facets to this lovely lady and just the few that we have come across have left us all in awe. Her boldness, composure and down-to-earth attitude have been evident in many of her media interactions and also through her social media pages. Having herself suffered from depression, Deepika has formed The Live Love Laugh Foundation to help spread awareness on mental health. She has never shied away from voicing her opinions on social issues and has always believed in doing her part for the society. Recently, we got an opportunity to chat with this amazing star and got her to tell us what came to her mind, when we mentioned a few words. Read on for her responses...


RASAM SAADHAM: Rasam & rice is life to me! I eat it everyday. Even today, I just had it for lunch. These are the first to be made at home, almost daily! Rasam always reminds me of home and is sort of a welcome-back-home dish!


LOVE: It is very important and the basis of everything! Whether it is being loved or giving love or simply loving what you do, love is what drives people. It is what unites people!


SUPERSTAR RAJINIKANTH: His childlike passion and enthusiasm have stayed with me, right from the time we worked together in Kochadaiyaan! He had just re - covered from his ill health but the energy and enthusiasm he brought to the shooting spot was very special for me to see!


FAME: It is a part of what I do but it is definitely not the “be all”, anymore!


AD-FILMS: I love working in advertisements and it reminds me of my modeling days. It is also very challenging as we have to emote or convey the required expressions in a very short period of time. I find that highly exciting!


SELFIES: The word “Sefies” makes me think of all my fans. Everytime someone wants a pic - ture, they ask me if they could take a selfie. The old style of taking out a camera and asking somebody else to take a picture is no longer in vogue. Everybody wants only selfies, nowadays. When I started out in movies, camera phones weren’t around, but this is the way of life now. I have actually gotten used to the fan moments with selfies.


MENTAL HEALTH: I have realised that taking care of the mind is as important as taking care of our physical health. It has made me realise how fragile our mind is, how common mental health issues are and all the stigma attached to it.


BATTLING DEPRESSION: To all those who are battling depression, I would ask them to be patient! More importantly, express yourself and seek help and always believe that there is hope.


LIVE LOVE LAUGH: I think we should atleast try and make it the motto of our lives!


TO ME, THE MIND AND BODY ARE ONE. I’M VERY TRANSPARENT, IN A WAY AND PEOPLE CAN VERY EASILY MAKE OUT WHAT MOOD I’M IN.
