She is undoubtedly the reigning queen of Bollywood and every filmmaker wants to work with the talented actor. But looks like Deepika’s growing popularity and success hasn’t gone too well with her contemporaries
Last year, Deepika Padukone had a dream run at the box office. The dusky beauty delivered four back-to-back blockbusters in 2013 that entered the Rs 100 crore club. In fact, her romantic comedy Chennai Express co-starring Shahrukh Khan went on to break many box office records and raked in more than Rs 200 crore, making it one of the biggest grossers of all time. The Cocktail babe has managed to achieve a feat which is not easy to surpass wethinks. Looking at her success rate in 2013, it would be safe to say that Ms Padukone even left behind the three ruling Khans of Bollywood in the rate race – Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir, hai na? So it’s not surprising that Dippy has swept away all the awards this year. But it seems DP is slowly paying the price for being at the top of the success ladder. Haven’t you heard the phrase ‘When you’re on top, you’re alone. Well, that’s the case with Ranveer Singh’s alleged girlfriend.
We hear few B-town beauties (read: rivals) have decided not to share their designer with the Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela actor. While talking to a tabloid, a source said, “They don’t acknowledge her anymore. Some have even told their dress designers to stop designing for her.” Though Deepika said on Koffee with Karan 4 that she is friends with her contemporaries Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, we are glad that her close pal Priyanka Chopra was there to burst her bubble. But we wonder if PeeCee is also one of the heroines who is against sharing her designer? After all, everything is possible in love, war and Bollywood, no?
In fact, Anushka, Kat, Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan are also Dippy’s contemporaries so it could be anyone or all of them, we dunno. But one thing is for sure – nobody can take away Deepika’s talent and she is here to stay!
