When actors start out in the film industry, there are a lot of projects and films they would have done before they get their big break. The fabulous Deepika Padukone is no different! The supermodel-turned-actress was first seen in the Kannada film, Aishwarya, before being noticed by Farah Khan in Himesh Reshammiya‘s music video. This led to Om Shanti Om, and the rest is history!
But it’s always so nice to see our superstars all naive and young back in the day, and take a trip down memory lane, right? This Tamil advertisement for a saree brand featuring DP is going viral on the internet right now. Deepika looks oh-so-young and bubbly in this ad, and is seen donning both professional and traditional attires. I had never come across this video before, and it was quite an experience for sure! The two ads show her before and after marriage.
The ads have been getting a lot of traction from her fans all over. While some can’t get over how cute she looked, some found the advertisement and its message about women to be problematic and regressive. Well, if she were to see this now, DP also might cringe at herself. But it’s so great to see how far she has come from there, no?
The actress is one of the highest paid celebrities in India right now and plays strong female characters like Padmavati and Piku with grace and poise like no other! A face of multiple national and international brands, Deepika is also a pioneer in voicing for mental health awareness. The lovely actress is married to the very talented Ranveer Singh and they are one solid power couple!
