To begin with, her family moved to Bangalore (Karnataka) when she was six months old. Her father, Prakash Padukone is a badminton champion. Deepika Padukone was educated at Sophia High School in Bangalore. Then she entered the University College Mount Carmel, but left to concentrate on acting. As a teenager, she had followed in her father’s footsteps and learnt to play badminton, travelling across India to participate in national tournaments, but then realized that the modelling world was way more interesting. With the support of her parents she started her modelling career, and appeared in commercials for several major Indian brands like Liril, Close-up Toothpaste, Dabur Lal powder, and others, which was a start to her net worth.
Then Deepika debuted in the Indian film industry in 2006, and rose to fame in 2007, when she starred with Indian star Shah Rukh Khan in the previously mentioned film “Om Shanti Om”. Afterwards, she landed roles in various films among which was the romantic comedy drama film “Love Aaj Kal” (2009) directed by Imtiaz Ali, in which the lead role landed by Padukone was again very well received by critics. In late 2010, she played a different role, as one of two women (Deepika Padukone, Vishakha Singh), in the struggle for Indian independence in 1930, the film being based on the Bengali novel “Do and Die: The Chittagong Uprising 1930 – 1934”. The film was a big flop that disappointed critics, however, she managed to receive critical acclaim for her roles landed in the films “Cocktail” (2012), “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” (2013), “Chennai Express” (2013), “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” (2013) and “Happy New Year” (2014), which all added steadily to her net worth.
The second Filmfare Award as the Best Actress Padukone won for the role landed in the Indian comedy-drama film directed by Shoojit Sircar (Piku) (2015). It is worth mentioning that the box office of the film grossed $21 million, increasing the net worth of Deepika Padukone considerably, and the following year the actress won her third Filmfare Award in the same category. The epic historical romance “Bajirao Mastani” (2015) directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali was presented as the highest-grossing Indian films of all time, amounting to over $53 million. Overall, acting is the main source of Padukone’s net worth.
