Deepika, who is the daughter of former World No.1 badminton player Prakash Padukone, made her acting debut in 2006 as the pivotal character of the Kannada film Aishwarya. She then essayed a double-role in her first B-Town release 'Om Shanti Om', which helped her win a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
The 2012 box office-hit 'Cocktail' marked a turning point in her career. Her other films include 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', 'Chennai Express' and 'Happy New Year'. She was also lauded for her performances in the tragic romance 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela'.
