The gorgeous lady, made her Bollywood debut on this day, ten years back with Shah Rukh Khan- starrer, Om Shanti Om (2007) and left viewers and the industry awestruck with her beauty.

2008- ROMANCE WITH EX-BOYFREIND RANBIR KAPOOR 

After Om Shanti Om, which was a hit at the box-office, Deepika signed Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) with her then boyfriend- Ranbir Kapoor. The film was not a great win at the ticket windows but Deepika was appreciated for her glam avatar and potential. This was the time when Deepika also grabbed limelight for her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor. The duo made their affair quite public after the release of the film.

2009- ROADBLOCKS AHEAD

Then came a few roadblocks in Deepika’s career and personal life, like Chandani Chowk To China with Akshay Kumar, where she tried experimenting with a double role yet again (post Om Shanti Om) but failed.  She also broke up with Ranbir in 2009.

Although, Deepika was still nursing a broken heart, the turning points in her professional life were awaiting her. It was Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal (2009) and Cocktail in 2012 which changed people’s perspective towards Deepika. In both the films, she starred opposite Saif Ali Khan. Imtiaz Ali brought out the real actress in Deepika and the world by now knew that this woman is not just a face but talent too.
