Deepika Padukone, the new age Madhuri Dixit
Think about the Bollywood actresses, you’ll see a selected few faces and understand why we like them more than the rest. These are actresses who have just blown us away with their performances. Deepika Padukone is, without a doubt, one of the best actresses working today, who can hold a film on her shoulder.
Deepika’s first big role was in Om Shanti Om, but she really wowed the critics in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aj Kal, probably the most out-there and liveliest role of her career, her performance as Meera is definitely one of the most surprising. From then, Deepika gave few stunning breakout performances that took her from ‘Aishwarya’ (Kannada) to becoming one of the most sought after actresses. This girl is crazy talented. She became everyone’s favorite and rocketed to the top of fame when she starred in Homi Adajania’s Cocktail (2012). This film displayed her ability to convey heartbreak.
She has come a long way from playing a Barbie doll in Om Shanti Om. She absolutely blew me away with her performance as Tara in Piku and we wish the camera to keep returning to her face. She plays a young, heartbroken girl so vividly that you feel you were with her. You feel the pain her character was feeling when she cries in Love Aj Kal. She looked stunning in Ram Leela and in all, she looked incredibly real.
Having worked with talent like Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Imtiaz Ali there’s really no telling what she’ll be up to next, and Bhansali’s next Bajirao Mastani is on the way, where she plays the role of beautiful and brave Mastani, the second wife of Peshwa Baji Rao I. Waiting to see her again.
