Dazzling beauty Deepika Padukone might be one of the biggest names in the Indian film industry right now but even she went through a lot of struggles during the initial stages of her career. She made a spectacular debut with 'Om Shanti Om' back in 2007 and there was no stopping her even since. She worked in Hollywood too as she romanced Vin Diesel in 'XXX: Return of Xander Cage'.
But she never acted in other English movies as she wanted to stay in her home country. Talking about her modelling days, she said, "Early on in my modelling career, I had an offer to move overseas and all of the fashion gurus in India said, 'You shouldn't be here, you should be in Paris, New York or Milan,' and I was like, 'No, those places are not my home. India is home.'"
Speaking about insecurities, she revealed, "When you were an outsider 15 or 20 years ago, there was no other option. It's an uphill task for any individual trying to make a mark in a field or profession that their parents don't come from. The fact that we've started to articulate things like nepotism is a new trend. It existed then, it exists now and it will continue to exist. That was my reality. I had no choice."
She added, "Back then, I had so many things to deal with, not just professionally but also personally. I was a teenager moving to a new city with no family or friends in a new industry. I had to figure out my meals and transport, and lug my own bags around. I never thought of it as a burden back then." She even recalled the time when she used to sleep during her car rides back home which made her mom quite worried.
After scoring hits like 'Jawan' and 'Pathan', Deepika is working on 'Singham 3' and she will be seen in 'Fighter' as well. The lovely lady is the female lead in 'Kalki 2898 AD' as well.
