Deepika's first film was opposite King Khan, Shahrukh and she is also doing films with other big stars like Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor etc. And now there is a buzz that she may be seen, a href=http://www.bollywoodmantra.com/1594_deepika-padukonethe-next-rising-star-of-bollywood.html> opposite our desi superhero, Hrithik Roshan in Krrish 2 . After working with top actresses like Preity Zinta and Priyanka Chopra, now Rakesh Roshan is supposedly keen to work with upcoming star Deepika Padukone. Rakesh Roshan merely stated "If Deepika suits the role; I will definitely consider working with her. But I cannot let you know much at this point because nothing is finalized yet. However some sources also claim that after Priyanka was criticized for her poor performance and look in Krrish, now Rakesh is not keen to cast her in Krrish 2 again and hence he has decided to rope in Deepika instead. We're sure audiences will be curious to know the chemistry of this gorgeous couple Hrithik and Deepika on-screen.
Meanwhile Deepika's personal life too seems to be going good. Recently Deepika was seen partying with cricketer Yuvraj Singh on his birthday. She played an extremely hospitable hostess, mingling with Yuvi's friends and family in a very comfortable manner. Sources in fact claim that Deepika and Yuvraj are a couple and seeing each other. Earlier Deepika was linked to another Indian cricketer Dhoni who seemed smitten with her. Deepika was earlier seeing model Nihar Pandya and also lived with his family in Mumbai for quite some time until she recently got her own place. But that relationship reportedly fizzled out when she supposedly began dating actor Rabir Kapoor. But now that too seems history as the lady seems quite comfortable with Yuvi. In fact Deepika has attended quite a few matches when India has played.

Apart from acting in films and endorsing brands, Deepika is also keen to complete her graduation studies and hence she has taken up a distance education degree course in Arts at the Indira Gandhi National Open University. Deepika has always been an intelligent student and hence she is keen to complete her graduation studies. She is studying for a major in sociology and economics. However this is a correspondence course that allows Deepika the benefit of getting her degree without having to attend college. Due to her hectic traveling schedule for her films and brand endorsements, she had to take up distance education and cannot attend regular college. So Deepika's plate seems to be full right now and will she be able to juggle all these together.
