Deepika Padukone, sister Anisha join Italian cooking course


Actress Deepika Padukone has enrolled for a week-long Italian cooking course in Tuscany, Italy, along with her sister Anisha. The siblings had made plans of taking the classes together some time ago. Deepika is a family person and always makes sure to spend time with her family amidst her busy schedule, and has kept her promise to her sister.

According to a leading daily, Deepika and Anisha are leaving for the course this week. “They had made this plan a while back. Despite having a packed schedule, Deepika has kept her promise to her sister. The two grew up in Bengaluru, and they often tried their hands at making dishes together,” a source close to the actress was quoted as saying.

Deepika is very close to her sister and loves to pamper her. Anisha is a golfer and both the sister are usually busy with their respective careers. So they both decided to take this getaway together, the source added.

Also, it has been long since Deepika spent quality time with her family. So, she asked her team for some days off from everything else to be able to do this with Anisha, the source further said.

After she returns, Deepika will start preparing for her next film, besides completing work for her brand commitments. Reports are rife that she will be teaming up with her ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela - Ram Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his upcoming project ‘Padmavati’ which goes on floors in September.

Meanwhile, Deepika will be next seen in her Hollywood debut film ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ opposite Vin Diesel. Directed by D.J Caruso, the action thriller is slated to release on January 20, 2017.
