Deepika PadukoneBy Archit Mishra

With a few exceptions, Bollywood has mostly been a male dominated industry. Of late Vidya Balan has surprised one and all with her Boxoffice ‘Kahaani’ comprising of  her ‘The Dirty Picture’ act. With a huge fan base, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have always been the front-runners for the Top 3 after Vidya. Then there is Sonakshi Sinha and Asin who have given importance to commercial success and thus have been mostly part of hero oriented scripts. In between all this, there is an actress who has really managed to maintain balance between performance and glamour quotient in her roles. We are talking about Deepika Padukone who’s riding high on success since last year.

In this write up we analyze – Is Deepika Padukone really a threat to the Top 3 spot for actresses in Bollywood.

Deepika Padukone Movies in 2013

1. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani: One of the most talked about off screen pair in B-town has been Ranbir-Deepika, who were last seen together in Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008). Well, we don’t know about their real life equation but this hot jodi is coming back again on reel post their so called break up. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is directed by Ayan Mukherji (Wake Up Sid fame) and produced by Karan Johar. Music Director Pritam is composing for the first time for Dharma Productions and the first look poster of the film has only increased expectations. The icing on the cake is that this film is hitting the screens on the first Friday post IPL season on 31st May, the release date which has given two blockbusters (Ready [2011] and Rowdy Rathore [2012]) to the industry.

2. Chennai Express: Deepika gets back to reprise the Jodi of her debut film with King Khan ‘SRK’ in Chennai Express and the man at the helm of affairs is none other than Rohit Shetty. This masala outing is touted by trade pundits as SRK’s biggest commercial success in the recent times. Not only the film, but even its release date is generating tremendous curiosity. 27th July, 8th Aug (Eid), 15th Aug (Independence Day) and the list goes on. It would be interesting to see which date is locked but by the looks of it, Chennai Express is a sure shot winner in the making.

3. Ram Leela: Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ram Leela is an adaption of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with Ranveer Singh and Deepika in lead roles. Recently the first look poster was launched which hinted this movie will have love and violence as its theme. The film will release on 29th Nov, two weeks after the hurricane Krrish 3 on Diwali.

4. Kochadaiyaan: With Kochadaiyaan, Deepika will share screen space for the very first time with Tamil superstar Rajnikanth. The film will be directed by Rajnikanth’s daughter Soundarya R Ashwin. A. R. Rahman will compose the music for this mega budget film. Release date has not been officially announced yet.

Other than these confirmed projects, rumours say that she has also bagged leading roles in Singham 2 and Kick opposite Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan respectively. Also, there is an unconfirmed project to be directed by Prabhudeva with Ajay Devgn.

  • If Deepika is doing “Singham 2” and “Kick” then next year she will be in top 3 for sure maybe no.1 bcoz both these movies will become sureshot blockbusters.

  • Most anticipated Deepika Padukone 2013 movie is
    1)Kochadaiyaan bcoz of Rajnikanth
    2)Ram Leela bcoz of Bhansali
    3)Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani bcoz of Ranbir Kapoor

  • I think it’s not the right time to say that she’s in top-3, not yet. She has given some successful movies as you listed above but she has also starred in some unsuccessful movies. Therefore, I think she lacks consistency but that’s understandable because most of the movies today are Hero oriented and Heroines does not have much to offer.
    In my opinion, she’s in top-5 at the moment if you consider some of the qualities like Acting skills and consistency.
    I would rank her behind; Vidya Balan, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, and Katrina Kaif overall.
    However, she may come in top-3 soon.

  • Kochadaiyaan,Ram Leela and YJHD are looking like good content movies while Chennai exp is looking cartoonish

  • who cares, looking forward to katrina and vidya’s forthcoming movies only – one the most beautiful, the other most talented. ;)

  • Race 2 domestic collection not 94 cr its boxoffice collection is 106 cr. Deepika join 100 cr club with race 2 while she will be join 200 cr club with chennai express and kochadiayaan. Srk deepika jodi will create the magic in chennai express like om santi om.

  • Deepika will be surely in top3 after release of C.E
    she will definately go down after kick;
    as deepika and salman both will win ghanta

  • Deepika Padu is neither a “good actress” nor is she “good looking”….so my question is what the hell is this woman doing in Bollywood????

  • @sachin11

    Jealous of SRK.

    I Agree for Kochadiyan because of Rajni.
    But ramleela coz of sajay & yeh…coz of ranbir blah blah.
    Seriously?they are much behind than SRK.
    Jealous eh?

  • Except for Ram Leela I’m waiting for all the other movies. Not just because Deepika is there;but because of the other interesting facts about those movies.

    One more thing to be added. Saif-Deepika Jodi has a flop for their name-Aarakshan.

  • 100% true @ outlander……i agree with u …..she a very ugly n most overrated star even though she come with srk or salman or ajay she will remain a flopsta freva….wht is she doin in bollywood
