Told to get a boob job, Deepika Padukone’s stunning revelation


Bollywood’s reigning actress Deepika Padukone made a stunning revelation while talking about facing sexual harassment in Bollywood.

In a new interview to the Evening Standard, the ‘Padmaavat’ actress was asked about the scenerio in Bollywood in the wake of the Me Too and Time’s Up campaigns that changed the industry abroad. “There’s so much more awareness,” she said. “There are so many people who speak up and I think in the same way that we see the wheels moving in the right direction globally, I see the same thing happening in India as well.”

She added that she was put under pressure early in her career. “There were lots of things I was advised (to do),” she said. “To get a boob job, do the beauty pageants. They felt it was the right way to be recognised or picked up by a Bollywood director or producer. It might be an easier way to achieve what you want to achieve. But I haven’t been that person; I’ve always followed my gut.”

On the personal front, Deepika Padukone is going to get hitched in November with her long-time beau, Ranveer Singh.
