Boys have taken a keen interest in history ever since she essayed the character of Mastani and girls have loved the nerdy look since she donned it in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The reigning queen of Bollywood celebrates her 32nd birthday today and we can’t forget the multiple times she has entertained us with her performances. We list down some of her most memorable roles in her career so far. Take a look…
Om Shanti Om – Shantipriya and Sandy
Gets to romance Shah Rukh Khan twice in two different eras! Quite a grand entry on the big screen this dreamy girl got.
Love Aaj Kal – Meera
It took time for Saif Ali Khan to understand his love and draw parallels with an older generation love story. But we were head over heels in love the moment we saw this sexy fresco artist.
Cocktail – Veronica
Now this is just what Bollywood required – actresses can drink, smoke and indulge in casual sex on the big screen. It’s normal! And big thanks to Deepika for pointing that out.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – Naina
The perfect girl whom you’d want to take home to meet your parents and who’d also share a pint of beer (and life lessons) with you when you’re low.
Chennai Express – Meenalochani Azhagusundaram
We love a girl with a tongue-twisting name and who can kick us out of bed at midnight and start calling us Thangaballi.
PS: This rule applies only to Deepika Padukone
Well our Saneda Juliet is quite a teekhi churi. There’s no stopping this one when she’s so in love with her Rajadi Romeo.
Happy New Year – Mohini
This one only makes it to the list because after Shah Rukh Khan, only Deepika can nail the sattar minute dialogue. And also her scintillating moves in Lovely are unbeatable.
Piku – Piku
So if you thought only glamorous roles are her forte, watch this one and her versatility.
Tamasha – Tara
If bumping into strangers can be this magical, then let’s hope we find our own stranger this year. Thanks to Deepika, we’re booking our ticket for Corsica right away.
Bajirao Mastani – Mastani
Call for a time machine! We want to go back to that era and fight wars and fall in love with the flawless Mastani.
