Deepika Padukone has always been Bollywood’s sporty-girl-next door. The former national level Badminton player, recently launched Team India’s World Cup jerseys as the face of Nike’s Bleed Blue campaign, shot by photographer Bharat Sikka. This time Deepika nailed the sports luxe trend, looking absolutely rad in that athletic Nike clothing.
In an interview with Vogue India the actress said,
Whether you like it or not, cricket is a religion in our country and it’s the one thing that brings people across the world together, as one unit. Of course, as an athlete I would like other sports to come up as well, but you can’t take away from the fact that cricket is the most popular sport in the world. Cricket was one of the first sports that I followed beyond badminton. And I have an association with the sport from the time I supported the Bangalore IPL team. That’s when I started understanding the game.
Looks like this diva is the real player! Deepika truly deserves to be the face of Nike’s Bleed Blue campaign and we totally love it! Will you bleed blue with Deepika Padukone in 2015?
