Throwback: Young Deepika Padukone poses with sister Anisha


Actress Deepika Padukone was a fan of Hollywood actor Leonardo Di Caprio as a young girl of twelve, and her latest throwback picture is proof. The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress made the day of fans by posting an old picture of her in her room which she shared with her younger sister Anisha.

The picture is actually a newspaper/magazine cutting with an article printed on it. Deepika captioned the post, “#flashbackfriday #MAJORflashbackfriday.” Twelve-year-old Deepika, dressed in a black top and grey trousers, is sitting with her seven-year-old sister at her pink-and-white sofa-cum-bed. A few posters of ‘Titanic’ actor Leonardo adorns the wall behind them.

Deepika's throwback picture has received more than 4 lakh likes in 15 hours and the actress’ alleged boyfriend Ranveer Singh is one of them. The ‘Befikre’ actor posted two heart-eyes emoticons in the comments thread, and Deepik’s followers liked Ranveer's reaction to the picture and rooted for the couple.

The article with the image described the sofa-cum-bed as Deepika’s favourite corner in their Bangalore bungalow, while Anisha, being a computer freak, spent most of her time at the computer table, shown in the inset picture. “Whether I’m reading, listening to music or chatting with friends, this is my favourite spot,” Deepika says in the article.
