Deepika Padukone began the year with a bang with the magnum opus ‘Padmaavat’. The actress not only won the hearts of the audience but also garnered rave reviews for her apt portrayal of Rani Padmini. Termed as the Queen of 100 crores club, Deepika Padukone holds the most number of 7 100 crores films, while her last outing Padmaavat clocking 300 crores at the box office. With this Deepika was titled the first actress to have entered the 300 crore club with a woman led film. However, apart from being a successful actress, she is also a doting daughter. Today, on the occasion of Father’s Day, Deepika shares on how her dad has been one of her strongest pillars throughout her life journey.
While talking about the things that Deepika has learnt from her father, the actress shares, “The most important thing for us and for them in bringing us up then is being a good human being. I remember he said that you can have all the stardom and success in the world but if you are not a good human being you will never be remembered. If you are a good person then it trickles in everything else that you do”.
When asked about how she has been a contributor to her family, Deepika shares, “Yes, especially my father. In some ways he is quite fixated about doing things a certain way. But if Anisha and I have a different perspective, dad doesn’t dismiss it. He is more than happy to have a conversation with us. His keenness to learn is amazing!”
When asked about what her father’s take on her films are, she shares, “He is ‘I love everything my daughter does’ or let’s put it this way ‘The excitement is always there. I hope I haven’t disappointed him in the last couple of years, in terms of my film choices but I don’t think that he will ever see wrong in something that I have done. He’ll always see something good only in what I have done. Like Ohh this was entertaining. The critics in the house are my mum and my sister.”
As Deepika’s family is Bangalore based, the actress has always made sure to take off time from her busy schedule to spend time with her family. When asked about the one special thing Deepika and her dad love doing together, the actress shares, “One thing that brings immense joy to him is to see me relaxed– no work tension, no telephone calls. Our idea of a special outing is to just sit and talk. Those moments are precious because gems come out of that. Sometimes, there is financial advice, most times, it is about catching up on what is happening in my life”. Deepika who has time and again proven to be a daddy’ girl wishes peace of mind and good health for him and nothing more than this.
