She impressed us as a ramp model and soon made her Bollywood debut opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan, in his production Om Shanti Om (2007). Over the years, she has become one of the most sought after B-town stars. She is Deepika Padukone. The actress has maintained a different avatar and style in all her films so far, and has shown that she can carry off the traditional as well as the modern look with ease. In real life, too, Deepika is as cool and stylish as on celluloid. In her forthcoming film Piku, the very hip Deepika sports seven different avatars.
But at an event for Piku at Film City in Mumbai, Deepika spoke about identifying with her style in Piku. She said, “Piku tries to keep her look stylish and functional at the same time. She believes in looking presentable, stylish and at the same time be comfortable at work. The style in the film is also like that – Piku works during the day, runs the house and also takes care of her father.” Take a look at Deepika Padukone’s seven avatars in Piku that you will love:
The independent-working-woman look of Deepika Padukone in Piku
Deepika has had this architect look in Love Aaj Kal, remember? That was more an on-the-field, restoration artist kind of look since she was a conservation architect. But Deepika’s architect look in Piku is more professional, and a very powerful image of the independent working woman.
Deepika teams up a traditional fabric kurta with palazzo pants and mojris. Her accessories carried off casually complete the look – bags, sunglasses, earrings and a scarf. We love this everyday office look of Deepika!
The traditional look of Deepika Padukone in Piku
Wooh, didn’t we like her in Chennai Express? But Deepika’s traditional look in a saree is much better because it’s simpler and more urban. Her red and black striped saree with a gold border, gold earrings and super minimal but visible make-up gets wow from us!
The going-out-for-groceries look of Deepika Padukone in Piku
Don’t we just love ’em Hollywood stars in their paparazzi pictures of going shopping at Wal-mart or picking up an ice-cream on the way? With their toddlers in shopping carts sometimes? We smile at those pics because they remind us of our basic style when we go out for buying groceries at the neighbourhood mom-and-pop store. Deepika Padukone keeps her grocery shopping look in Piku just as basic, in a pair of jeans and a navy blue shirt. We LIKE!
The babysitter look of Deepika Padukone in Piku
While babysitting her friend’s daughter in Piku, Deepika becomes a little girl herself. So she sports a denim jacket and pink top, and clips and scrunchies in her hair. Dips looks like a happy-go-lucky teenager away from the worries of looking after her father (played by Amitabh Bachchan).
The taking-care-of-Baba look of Deepika Padukone in Piku
As for when she is taking care of her father (or Baba) in Piku, Deepika Padukone sports a casual checked shirt and tank top in Piku, as she drives him around. This is a great casual western avatar that most girls will identify with!
The kurta-clad girl-next-door look of Deepika Padukone in Piku
This is the absolute single girl-next-door look in India! A cotton kurta can be both casual and formal, and Deepika Padukone rocks it, with a simple matching bindi and little make up.
The cleaning-up-the-house look of Deepika Padukone in Piku
This is you and me during spring cleaning in the house! Hair tied up, old T-shirt and extended jhaadu or broom in hand – Deepika Padukone effortlessly becomes the homely girl here, cleaning the house without any help, just like most of us. Do you like these seven everyday looks of Deepika Padukone?
