Ever since making her debut opposite the Badshah Khan in 'Om Shanti Om', Deepika Padukone has hardly stayed out of the limelight. Be it her professional or personal life, none has been anything less than a roller coaster ride for the stunning beauty.

Coming from a middle class with a badminton player as a father, Deepika was always inspired to take up sports as her career. However, when the teen national level shuttler expressed her desire to enter showbiz, she was supported and encouraged.

Soon she became the face of India's most-loved fashion calendar and her fresh face caught the interest of various filmmakers. Post making her debut through Farah Khan's 2007 blockbuster, the magnificent beauty became an overnight sensation.

Her determination and spirit to make it to the top touched millions of hearts and despite her films like 'Lafangey Parindey' and 'Housefull' meeting with the negative reviews, filmmaker's belief in her didn't fade and she made a big bang comeback with 'Cocktail' in 2012.

2013 proved to be another turning point in her career with the release of her three back-to-back superhits, followed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Bajirao Mastani'. With her inspiring performance in 'Piku', the actress added another feather to her cap.

The celebrated actress has gone through various health issues in life, from battling with depression to dealing with complex issues but never has she let them take over her identity. After basking in her sorrow over a little period of time, she bounced back as a much stronger personality.

Unlike the other celebrities, the charismatic beauty has not only talked about her mental state of mind but also came forward to raise awareness about the same. Deepika has come a long way in her decade-long acting career and nothing can snatch her success from her now.

Padukone is currently vacationing with her alleged beau Ranveer Singh in Vienna where the loved-up couple rang in New Year together. Both have never admitted their relationship publically but admiration for each other is evident through their public appearances.
