[Luxus Magazine] Who is Deepika Padukone, the Bollywood superstar that everyone is fighting for?

If you don’t know her yet, it may be time to take an interest in Deepika Padukone, the Bollywood actress who is among the most famous women of the subcontinent. From jury member of the Cannes Film Festival to Égérie Cartier, how did she put the world at her feet?

 

Committed actress, producer, philanthropist and entrepreneur of Indian origin, Deepika Padukone has more than one string to her bow. This 37-year-old Indian-born woman is a beloved star in her country, who remains the world’s leading film producer, far ahead of the United States.

 

It should be noted that Bollywood – the contraction of Mumbai and Hollywood – initially refers to the approximately 360 productions that are released each year from Mumbai studios and that have more than 30 million spectators worldwide… per day.

 

From TV to the cinema

 

Deepika Padukone was born in Denmark, to a high-level sports father and a travel agent mother. Early on, she started modeling. It was through a television commercial that her career took off in India and took her close to Bollywood, where she soon made a name for herself.

 

She also pursued her career in modeling and worked for several major Indian brands, before becoming a muse for Maybelline.

 

 

After a successful first film for the young actress, the proposals follow one another and she quickly becomes a great actress of Bollywood cinema. To date, she has accumulated more than 30 films.

 

In 2017, she made her Hollywood debut alongside Vin Diesel in the xXx: Reactivated movie, whose trailer was a huge hit with over 100 million views in a week on Facebook and YouTube.

 

 

Despite a fast and successful start to her career, she overcame some failures.

 

After the United States, she decided to create her production company – Ka production – which is not very successful with only two films produced so far: Chhappak, which deals with a societal subject that remains a real scourge in India: women attacked with acid. Then 83, a lighter feature film, released 2 years ago.

 

 

According to the Indian tabloid Bollywood Hungama, the star also lost a coveted role in 2021 after asking the production to raise its salary – in order to align it with that of the other main actor, her husband Ranveer Singh.
