The gorgeous and talented Deepika Padukone is one of the most sought after and highest paid actresses of the Hindi film industry. In fact, last year she was named as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time. Deepika was last seen on the big screen in Padmaavat, which became her highest-grossing release and one of Indian cinema's biggest grossers ever. Currently, she is busy gearing up for her next release Chhapaak, which will mark her first production venture.

In a recent chat with Vogue, the actress shared how her journey began in the film industry. She shared, “I had no training, no mentors. I worked it all out on my own. Sure, I had some failures, personal and professional. But sheer determination fuelled me. It was empowering.”

She went on to reveal what drove her to do films and said, “As a family, we saw maybe two films a year. I don’t know why. But whenever I watched a movie, I knew that one day I’d be doing this. I’d start with modelling, then go into films. And that’s exactly how it happened.”

Deepika concluded: “When I’m complimented for my work, but you know what’s most rewarding for me? When people tell me I haven’t changed. That I am still myself.”
