One of Bollywood’s highest paid actor, Deepika Padukone who comes from an athletic family, spent her teenage playing badminton. She left her career in sports to become a fashion model. Deepika is an ace actor today but has not forgotten her roots. Her passion for sports still lives within her and her latest Instagram post is proof.
Recently, the actor took some time off from her hectic schedule to get in her sports shoes and practice her layups. She shared a slo-mo video of her playing basketball all alone in a court on Instagram and captioned it, “all work and no play………you get the drift!👊🏽🏀⛹🏽♀️.” In no time, Deepika’s husband Ranveer Singh commented on the video and wrote, “BALLIN’ 🏀🤩”.

On the professional front, Deepika is currently occupied with the shooting of her next film Chhapaak. The film’s team have wrapped up their Delhi schedule and are now shooting in Mumbai.
Earlier, several videos of Deepika and Vikrant Massey from the sets of the film got leaked and took the internet by storm. A few days ago, Deepika and Vikrant’s lip-locking video on a terrace went viral on social media. We wonder if the same is going to happen in Mumbai.
Chhapaak is based on the story of an acid-attack survivor, Laxmi, who was attacked at the age of 16 by a 32-year-old man who stalked her and then threw acid at her after she rejected his advances.
Earlier, Laxmi reacted to Deepika’s first look from the film and said, “I was happy to see Deepika’s first look from the film. I was feeling good that a celebrity has come in that look.” Laxmi further added, “A lot of make-up artistes changed a natural face to acid distorted face. And I felt, see, they are finding beauty in an acid-burnt face”.
Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is slated to release on January 10, 2020. Chhapaak will be clashing with Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior at the Box Office.
