From state-level badminton player to a calendar girl and now one of the hottest actresses in B-town, Deepika Padukone has definitely proved her mettle. Deepika celebrates her birthday today, and though she has been in the industry for about 5 years, she’s already 13 films old and has numerous awards to her name.
While DP made her debut with the title role in the Kannada film Aishwarya, it was her double-role as Shantipriya/Sandhya opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om that made everyone sit up and take notice. 2010 may have been an important year for the badminton star’s daughter, with a new tattoo and very delicious arm-candy in the form of Sidhartha Mallya.
Wishing Deepika a very happy birthday!
