Deepika Padukone set her eyes on the Zee Cine Awards 2014


The prestigious Zee Cine Awards is all set to take place on 8th February this year. The first Zee award function took place in 1998, and since then there is no looking back. The honor associated with the Zee Awards is priceless. The nominations for the awards are extensively discussed by the film critics and movie buffs. This year is no different. However, the award category that seems to catch the fancy of the fans this year is the best actress award.  Speculations are rife that the dusky beauty Deepika Padukone is all set to win the best actress award this year.

The year 2013 has been stupendous for Deepika. The leggy lass had delivered big hits such as ‘Race 2’, ‘Ram Leela’ and ‘Chennai Express’. Even her role in the film ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ was also liked by the fans and critics. Deepika has worked hard around the year and her efforts have paid off as she has received major awards in most of the Bollywood award ceremonies. Therefore it is interesting to speculate whether she can win the best actress award from the judges of Zee Cine Awards as well to complete a near total sweep.

Deepika has got the nomination for Best Actor (Female) in this year’s Zee Cine Awards for her performances in the movies ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Goliyon Ki Raas leela Ram-Leela’. Her Competitors for the award are Sonam Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra. Sonam Kapoor is nominated for her performance in the movie ‘Raanjhanaa’ and Parineeti Chopra for ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’. No doubt that the competition will be tough between the trio. ‘Raanjhanaa’ is the first hit of Sonam and she has put up a very natural performance in the movie. Whereas, Parineeti is an actress par excellence and her performance in the movie is well applauded by the critics.

However, the leggy lass Deepika do have other advantages over her competitors. She has a huge fan following that cannot be matched by Parineeti or Sonam. Also her movies have done huge business at the box office, specially ‘Chennai Express’ has been one of the biggest hit of the year. The amount of money riding on the broad shoulders of Deepika is much more high than what Sonam or Parineeti can expect in their career at this moment.
