Deepika, is one of the highest-paid actresses in the world, who has been the reigning queen of Bollywood since her debut film ‘Om Shanti Om’. She has also been mentioned in Maxim’s List of the ‘Top 100 Hot Women from around the Globe', last year. Deepika was born on 5th January 1986, blessed with genes of a sportsman father and an intelligent mother.
Just like a typical Capricorn Deepika, had a mature head on her shoulders since childhood which inculcated a sense of disciplined routine in her life. She wanted to become a badminton player in her early childhood taking inspiration from her badminton star father and she vigorously trained for this dream. But destiny had other plans for her and she became an actress. She, later on, shared that the discipline and professionalism that she picked up from the field of sports, has helped her come a long way in her Bollywood career. She said in one of her interviews that, “When I branched out in a different profession, I realized how much of that background I use in my life today - from the simplest things like my diet and sleep; to my financial aspect as well”.
Capricorns are high achievers and Deepika too has that penchant for excellence. Her ability to take criticism, acknowledge her limitations and strive to work harder has made her one of the most popular and high-profile celebrities in India.
Deepika was not a friendly or much of a social kind of person during her childhood. But like a typical Capricorn, when Deepika choose a friend- Shahana Goswami. they both got along like a house on fire.
She always valued her friendships a lot for instance last year she took time off her busy schedule, she to attend her best friend Srila Rao’s wedding in Sri Lanka, not just for a cursory appearance, but helping the bride get ready as any regular girl would do. The Capricorn Deepika is loyal, caring and motherly to her close friends.
A Capricorn woman is traditional, organized and responsible. When interviewed about ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and if she would relate to that character, she said that she doesn’t endorse the character personally as she is very conservative in life. A Capricorn has excellent business sense and so it’s no surprise that while Deepika earns her millions, she values every penny earned and invests it wisely. Says Deepika,”We, as a family, are extremely conservative when it comes to money. I come from a middle-class family, plus I am a South-Indian. Every rupee is accounted for.”
Capricorns are also known to take a strong stand and to be determined. The perfect example for proving that this Capricorn trait is very much alive in Deepika Padukone is her statement during the Padmavati Controversy. Deepika Padukone was quoted saying that the movie will be released no matter whatever happens when the Rajput Karni Sena was going haywire about the Movie. For those of you who don’t know about the Padmavati movie controversy Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus has Deepika Padukone playing Queen Padmavati, Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Rana Ratan Singh. Now, what irked the fringe group was a grapevine about a dream sequence in the movie, in which Alauddin Khilji dreams of spending some romance with Queen Padmavati. It's not hard to believe as the film also rides on the popularity of the hottest couple of Bollywood Ranveer and Deepika. Rani Padmini's legend has been open to interpretations of poets, artists and historians ever since her first mention in the history by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540 CE.
Even after death threats from the Rajput Karni Sena Deepika stood strong by her stand and was never bothered by all the hullabaloo created by the fringe group and seemed perfectly confident and gracious. You are such a typical Capricorn Deepika and we wish you a happy birthday!
