Om Shanti Om

Back in 2007, birthday girl Deepika grabbed everyone's attention with her simplicity in her debut film Om Shanti Om. She was seen opposite Shah Rukh and their fresh pairing did help the film make a lot of noise at the box office. Deepika was seen in a dual role, firstly as an actress Shanti Priya and other as a struggling actress Sandy. To play Shanti Priya, she donned a pink outfit with a retro bouffant hairdo. Her classic entry is still one of the most remembered scenes. Deepika surely managed to make a place in everyone's heart right from her first film.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

Chashmish Naina or sexy Naina, we loved both of them! Her character in Ayan Mukerji's Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani underwent a massive transformation and it left fans in awe of her.
