Deepika asked to rest after Cocktail Hangover

Deepika Padukone has been asked to take 5 days rest, after she fainted on the sets of, ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Dewani’. The sultry and svelte actress is considered to be one of the fittest in the Indian Film Industry. Perhaps the eleven to twelve hours of shooting daily turned out to be too strenuous for her.

Deepika recently featured in the urban romance movie ‘Cocktail’. She played the fun-loving character of Veronica D’Costa .She was shown as a wild-child, always impulsive.  The movie was a success mainly due to her energetic performance. Where she was seen partying throughout the movie. In one song she had gyrated to a Chinese song at the grand nightclub at Clapham Junction, London, by dancing on the table. The movie was also shot at several locations in London which included Mayfair, Piccadilly Circus and Bank Station.  

Deepika is the daughter of ace badminton player Prakash Padukone. She played badminton for her school at state level. She started her career with modeling. She was seen as a model in ads like Liril, Limca and Dadbur Lal toothpaste. She was the international spokesperson of the cosmetic company Maybelline.  She was adjudged Model of the Year at the fifth kingfisher Fashion Awards. She made her film debut in 2006 in the Kannada movie, Aishwarya.

Deepika has always been a whiff of fresh air in any role she played. That prompted, director Farah Khan to sign her up for the movie ‘Om Shanti Om’, opposite Shahrukh Khan. Farah said she offered the perfect retro look, required for the movie.  She was her natural self in the movie. She turned into a feisty, modern Indian woman with her next film ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, which also starred Ranbir Kapoor, Bipasha Basu and Minisha Lamba. Though her acting was not too good, she was recognized for good looks in the movie. She started dating Ranbir around that time until their breakup in 20/08. Later she was hooked to Siddharth Mallya, the son of Kingfisher owner Vijay Mallya.

Her next movie to be released is ‘Yeh Jawani hai dewani’, where she is playing the role of Naina. The film is slated to be released on March 19, 2013. She also features in ‘Race 2’, to be released on January 25th and a Tamil film ‘Kochhadaiyaan’, which is in post production and is to be released on December 12, 2012.
