Indonesian star Agnez Mo’s is no more the most followed celebrity on Twitter. Because, she has been taken over by our very own leggy lass – Deepika Padukone. Her popularity steadily increased over the years, which has led to her becoming one of the most followed actresses on social networking sites. Deepika has made 20 Million followers on Twitter and is now the most followed woman in Asia.
This achievement is an addition to her recent blockbuster movies namely – Piku, Bajirao Mastani, and her international flick XXX: Return of Xander Cage and taking a place in the Forbes’ Top 10 highest paid Bollywood actresses.
In a Twitter conversation with her fans, she spoke about her love and attachment for her family. Her favorite hero is her father, Prakash Padukone, a former Badminton player.
Deepika played strong characters in her films and is appreciated for the choice of her films. She openly spoke about her fight with depression which brought her more closely to her fans. She always finds time to connect with her fans on social media, participate in Live Chats and fulfill a die-hard fan’s request of personally wishing the fan’s father on Father’s Day.
DEEPIKA PADUKONE’S FILMY JOURNEY
The actress completed nine years in the industry after Om Shanti Om (2007), followed by major hits, including Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express, and others with stars from Shah Rukh Khan to Ranbir Kapoor.
Currently, Deepika Padukone is working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s project – Padmavati. It is rumored that she has been paid a bomb of ₹ 13 Crore for this movie. However, Bhansali denied the rumor as he never speaks about his monetary deals in front of the media.
The latest reports suggest a bigger and a fatter pay cheque that Deepika would be taking back home for her role of Queen Padmavati.
Deepika’s journey as an actress has definitely been an inspiring one for her fans and peers alike. With the 20 Million milestone, it is still to go way further.
