Deepika Padukone is one of the finest actress we have in the industry today and has only gone from strength to strength since she stepped foot in Bollywood. A force to reckon with today, the actress is also a global star in her own rights. And it took grit, determination and a lot of hard work. DP, as they fondly call her, climbed the ladder of success on her will and merit and it’s awe-inspiring that there’s no air about her, no speck of vanity. Not to mention, the hotness quotient of the sun! The B-town diva is also a bonafide fashionista who isn’t afraid to experiment. Be it satin PJs for appearances or high-slight cocktail numbers, Deepika Padukone is all about seizing the moment and it’s effortless.

In fact, she recently seized some and more when she turned showstopper for Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s show last night and boy, did she sparkle. Won’t lie; it all looks like a dream but there are pictures and videos of her shashaying down the ramp and we have woken up to most beautiful surprise! Deepika wore an exquisite ivory lehenga with rose gold, shimmer detailing and fine embroidery and honestly, it reminded of us another Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla creation in white which she wore at her wedding reception. For she wore the veil as a trail again yesterday only sans the saree. But the ensemble spoke its own language she paired it with a matching full-sleeves blouse. The make-up was dewy and smoky at the right places and we’re in love.

What can be better than a reality that’s better than a dream? Guess nothing!

On the work front, Deepika has wrapped up Chhapaak. The Meghna Gulzar directorial is a biopic on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. In the film, Deepika will be seen romancing Vikrant Massey. Chhapaak will release in January next year. She will also be seen in 83 opposite Ranveer Singh for the first time after their marriage and interestingly, they’ll be seen playing an on-screen couple in the film. 83 is directed by Kabir Khan and is based on the first Cricket World Cup triumphant team which included the likes of Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Kris Srikanth and others.
