Did Dippy’s film choices change her position in B-town or did her endorsement deals made her the most bankable heroine? Read on to find out!
It won’t be wrong if we say Deepika Padukone has been the star of 2013 and 2014. The leggy lass gave four back to back hits in the form of Race 2 , Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela. All the four films bought her immense accolades, a number of awards and most importantly the tag of No 1 female actor in Bollywood.
We wonder besides immense talent, what else brought the dusky beauty to the No.1 spot. Was it her changed attitude towards work or was it her past experiences with people within the film industry? When Deepika was asked about her work plans, the leggy actor optimistically said “My focus is on doing good work, working with good filmmakers, taking up challenging roles and being able to pull them off.”
Here are our reasons why we think Dippy is on the numero uno position…
Superhits at the box office – Ranveer Singh’s ladylove had a successful run at the box office. Deepika after the release of her films was spotted at various events and with much more confidence and spark. Don’t you agree with us peeps?
Endorsement deals – Dippy recently hit headlines when apparently she was offered Rs 6 crore for endorsing a leading cola brand besides other multiple brands that she endorses. By far Deepika is the highest paid female actor in terms of endorsements followed by Priyanka Chopra who is paid Rs 5.5 – Rs 6 crore and Katrina Kaif who is paid around Rs 5 –Rs 6 crore for brand endorsements.
Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone break up – Deepika has time and again claimed that she has learnt a lot from her previous relationship with Ranbir Kapoor and has since then been guarding her personal life. Probably this is one of the main reasons why she has never admitted to being in a relationship with her Ram-Leela co-star Ranveer Singh. When Ms Padukone appeared on Koffee with Karan with PeeCee, she admitted that when she was with the Kapoor lad, her entire life revolved around him which left her with very little time for herself. However, now she claims that she has learned to be more focused on work and also keep her personal life away from the public view.
Her not so kind colleagues – The Ram Leela actor has time and again been a target by her contemporaries in B-town. Recently when Sonam Kapoor appeared on Koffee with Karan with Anil Kapoor, the fashionista said that Deepika has an over-enthusiastic PR team and has no dressing sense of her own. Also, it’s not a lesser known fact that Deepika is not on very good terms with her ex’s current alleged girl friend Katrina Kaif. With so much happening around, the Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year co-star has decided to keep them at par and concentrate on work. When Deepika was asked to comment on Sonam’s remarks, she refused to comment. Also, such remarks might help Deepika’s over enthusiastic PR team to stay in the media limelight! Wink, wink!
Ranveer Singh – Her Ram Leela co-star seems to have got happiness to the actor’s life and also a few big budget films. Rumors are rife that Ranveer and Deepika will apparently pair up again for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. Deepika had even said, “I hope whatever film Ranveer and I do next is as good as or even better than Ram Leela.” Way to go Deepika, we must say!
