Actor Shah Rukh Khan’s film Om Shanti Om was released 15 years ago today. With this, Deepika Padukone made her debut and completed 15 years in the entertainment industry. Her beauty and acting prowess as Shanti Priya told the world that she came here to dominate the industry, which she did, gracefully.

Deepika carved a place for herself not only in the Hindi cinema but also in Hollywood.  She also brought special recognition to India at the global level on several occasions.

On the occasion of Deepika Padukone’s 15th anniversary in Bollywood, let’s travel back and look at the proud achievements of the 36-years-old.

The only Indian actor to give 4 back-to-back 100 crore films in a year

Deepika Padukone had a fabulous run in year 2013 when she took over the world with four back-to-back films, which later entered the 100 crores club at the box office. Her year started with Race 2 which earned Rs 161 crores worldwide in January. After winning the world with her bold yet elegant looks, Deepika came with a rather poised and geeky look as she played Naina Talwar in Ayan Mukherjee’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The film collected Rs 188 cores worldwide in May 2013.

In August, Padukone gave another epic performance with the character of Meenamma Lochini in Rohit Shetty’s film Chennai Express co-starring the one and only, Shah Rukh Khan. The film earned Rs 227 crores worldwide. And when fans typecast the actor, she proved her mettle with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela which collected Rs 204 crores worldwide in November. Deepika also won the Filmfare Award in the best actor-critic category, and also met the love of her life, Ranveer Singh on the set of this film.

Only Indian actor among World’s 10 Most Beautiful Women

Deepika Padukone was recently named the ‘Golden Ratio of Beauty’ by a scientist along with Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid, Beyoncé, and Ariana Grande for being judged as the world’s most beautiful women.

She was featured in the list as one of the 10 Most Beautiful Women using the Greek technique. Most interestingly, she is the only Indian to feature in this highly coveted Golden Ratio of Beauty list, which applies formulas to determine physical perfection.

India’s biggest global brand ambassador

Deepika Padukone is the only Indian to be chosen as the global face of luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Cartier as well as pop culture brands like Levi’s and Adidas.

First Indian actor to be honoured twice by Time Magazine

The global actor joined world leaders including scientists and CEOs, artists and activists, pop stars and politicians as the Time 100 Impact Awardees in 2022. These are some of the leaders who have done exceptional work through their consistent efforts to shape the future of their industry and the world at large.

At the Museum of the Future in Dubai, Deepika Padukone was honoured for her stellar work that has inspired and influenced millions across the world. Interestingly, this makes Deepika Padukone the first Indian actress to be honoured twice by Time Magazine.

Part of the Variety International Women’s Impact Report for 2 consecutive years

Through her films and her efforts towards mental health advocacy, Deepika Padukone has impacted the waves of social change. The superstar was honoured by Variety and was the only Indian icon to be a part of the report for 2 consecutive years.

Deepika’s Statue at Madame Tussauds Wax Statue

While many celebrities have been immortalized at Madame Tussauds in London, Deepika Padukone’s statue titled ‘The Statue of Purpose’ has a deeper meaning. She is also the first Indian to have her statue in the A grade section in London. With her statue, Deepika hoped to give people a sense of upliftment and a sense of hope as the statue was made on her real-life avatar and not of a film character.
