Deepika Padukone Upcoming Movies: 2013 – 2014

Deepika Padukone is on a roll. Now that’s a known fact. What is notable though is that it isn’t on account of several 100 crore earners that are primarily hero driven enterprises with a heroine being a ‘part’ of an affair. Deepika’s game has been different. Oh yes, there has been a ‘Race 2’ where she was primarily a glamorous offering. However, a quick look in the past and it reveals how she was desperately wooed back into the film incessantly after she had walked out of due to date issues. The fact that the film came in the middle of ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ lends further credibility to Deepika’s stature.

No wonder, while she is firmly placed in the Top-3 with ‘seniors’ like Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif as an elite company, she has pretty much left behind her other contemporaries miles behind. One look at the kind of repertoire that she would be boasting of in months to come and it is crystal clear that the gap is only going to widen in a major way.

Deepika Padukone Upcoming Films

Chennai Express – 8th August 2013

By far the biggest film that she has been a part of, Deepika Padukone has thrown in a good enough promise that she could well turn out to be the best part of the film. If the promo of ‘Chennai Express’ has managed a good enough recall and repeat value, a major contributor has been Deepika, her uninhibited act and a dialogue delivery that would gain further fans for her. In a true-blue romantic-comedy-action entertainer where she has a major role to play than just being someone around Shahrukh Khan, Deepika is clearly looking at a film which would challenge the commercial run of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.

Ram Leela – 29th November 2013

If performance is what one would be looking forward to from Deepika Padukone, ‘Ram Leela’ could well act as a barometer for that. Fortunately for her (and her fans), Deepika has done well to establish her credentials as an actress since the ‘Cocktail’ days. This means she would be scrutinised much lesser in this Sanjay Leela Bhansali film than what she had been if at all this would have been her first ever truly challenging assignment. With the film constantly being in news ever since it’s inception, ‘Ram Leela’ is a hardcore romantic tale (with a dose of action as well) which would feature Deepika right throughout.

Kochadaiyaan – 2013 end

Though one can’t say the same for ‘Kochadaiyaan’ (in terms of Deepika being present in the film right throughout), given the fact that it is a Rajinikanth film, one looks forward to how her presence adds on to an already heavy weight flick. The very fact that Deepika was the chosen one for this magnum opus when things didn’t work on ‘Rana’ says a lot about how she was being looked at by powers-that-be in Tamil cinema to be a part of their affair. Moreover, she is following Aishwarya Rai (Endhiran/Robot) as Rajinikanth’s next heroine from Bollywood which says a lot about her standing in the Indian cinema map.

Finding Fanny Fernandes – First half of 2014

Meanwhile Deepika is further taking strides as far as picking up varied subjects is concerned. She is doing what no other established mainstream commercial actress from the present or past has done i.e. pick an English language film which has an Indian base and setting to it. To be directed by Homi Adajania, ‘Finding Fanny Fernandes’ has Arjun Kapoor as her co-star. An oft repeated phrase of ‘This is an offbeat film made for niche audience’ could well be quashed by this road film that would go on floors this September and is expected to release in the first half of 2014.

  • she’s not in top 3! Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra n Katrina Kaif are still the top 3!! One film doesnt change everything..

  • Deepika has beaten Priyanka. The latter is getting roles in small films with small stars (except Krrish 3) like Zanjeer R, Gunday etc. Priyanka cannot work with big costars like SRK, Akshay, Salman etc.

  • When it comes to both looks and acting,she is ahead of katrina kaif . . .now my two fav actresses are deepika and anuska. .i like bebo too. . . .

  • Still not worked with Salman and Aamir.Thakur has made her star but if she want to become superstar and no 1 actress then the only option is she need to work with this 2 khans.

  • @jm
    you are mad.krrish 3 small film,zanjeer small film.ha ha ha ha ha.i will not f8 because pc and dips are best friend.But pc is more bigger.

  • i am feeling bad for deepika, after giving blockbusters like yjhd and race 2, she will have to face the bad fate of chennai express, chennai express will be her first flop in many years thanx to mr. saruk kan. saruk kan will officially retire biding godd byes to the world.

  • Deepika is smoking hot, she looked great as a wildbrat in cocktail, a geek and softie in YJHD, showing comic skills and diff accent and look in Chennai Exrpress and a totally different avatar in intense lovesaga RamLeela. This girl is showing variety and versatilty not in roles and looks but also in ACTING. She can look good, dance and act. Finally a deserving complete package as number 1. I hope Deepika continues this good run and at the same time keeps her adorable humilty intact. The girl with dimpled smile Deepika is here to rock. I am a fan now from after 2012.

  • deepika padukone has won a fan in me from her heartwarming restraint performance in yeh jawani. she has the charm and talent. this girl has a bright future i hope she picks characters well. i watched cocktail after loving her yeh jawani performance and i donno what to say she is spellbinding two opposite roles pulled to perfection by her. glad to see her working hard and winning hearts with her acting.

  • Deepika is one girl who truly deserves to be this gen’s number one actress. She can dance, look great, have the humilty and demeanour and above all can ACT. I am so bowled over by her recent performances in Cocktail, YJHD, Chennai Express promos. This girl played a wild greyish brat in Cocktail, a softie and geeky Naina in YJHD now showing another radically differnt side with south indian look and accent trying to explore Comic skills. Ram Leela another challenging and different project by her, looks like an intense love story. This girl in a short span shown tremendous variety in roles and looks and especially acting. I hope she keeps this talent, humilty, cuteness and hotness intact and continue to capture hearts. Deepia you’ve arrived and how! And Yes you’ve won a fan in me too. Oh yeah and her cute dimpled smile is also a bonus.

  • Just lv u…u r most talented nd much more beautiful thn (cat)rina…I m ur die heart fan nd soo much happy for ur back 2 back success…
