In a conversation with Mashable India, Deepika Padukone said, “I got stuck in the floods. In 2005, I was studying in an acting school in Juhu. When we came out of class, we found out that the whole Khar and Santacruz area was completely submerged. Me and my friends walked in waist-deep water. I lived in Andheri and I couldn’t go back home because that whole area was flooded.”

Deepika Padukone further added, “My friends were kind enough to offer me to stay the night because they lived close by. Having said that, I think it took us two or three hours just to go from Ajivasan to Linking Road (around 1.5 kilometres). We were all holding on to the divider and walking. Obviously, it was scary because there could have been live wires or manholes.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, the 36-year-old actress was recently seen in Gehraiyaan which was released on February 11th, 2022 on Amazon Prime Video. The film also stars Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Dhairya Karwa in pivotal roles.
