New Update

Deepika Padukone has been acknowledged by the global journal Deadline as a disruptor for the class of movers & shakers 2024, joining the high-profile footsteps of Eva Longoria, Uma Thurman, and Lee Sung Jin. In an open discussion with the magazine, Deepika discussed her experiences in the entertainment business, the stigma associated with mental illness, and her efforts to introduce Indian film on the Hollywood worldwide stage.


Deepika made her Hollywood debut with the 2017 movie xXx: Return Of Xander Cage. Thinking back on her career in the film business, particularly her Hollywood audition experience, she revealed, “About a decade ago, when I started my journey in the West auditioning, it was a really new process for me because I’d never had to audition. I wasn’t a trained actor, and I never went to a fancy acting school — everything that I’ve learned has been on the job. The systems are so different between Hollywood and Bollywood.


Padukone even talked about the Indian Film, RRR, and the global recognition it has received, while also winning Best Original Song in 2023 for Naatu Naatu from the same movie at the Oscars. She said, “I think the world has become smaller, and the world has come together and it’s really about telling great stories. I don’t think we’ve drastically changed anything in India about the way that we work or the kinds of stories that we tell. I think we’ve always had interesting stories to tell, but I do think that what has changed is that the world has opened up to the idea of the East and to India in particular, and I think that’s the change – realizing there is a world outside of America.”

Deepika Padukone is one of the leading actresses in Bollywood today, and even has made a name for herself in Hollywood. Deepika will be soon be seen on screen in Rohit Shetty’s Singham.
