Deepika Padukone has been garnering laurels from all corners of the world. The latest feather on her cap is becoming the only Indian actress to be featured on the coveted list of International Women's Impact Report done by Variety magazine.
Deepika was featured on number 33 out of the 51 leading women from across the globe who featured in the list.
Variety magazine in their online portal referred to Deepika in the following terms:
The star of the recent Bollywood blockbuster “Padmaavat” faced death threats and verbal abuse from various fringe groups with poise and elan. Padukone, whose father, Prakash, was a star badminton player, used to participate in the sport before becoming a model. She is now one of the highest-paid Indian actresses and has made the leap from Bollywood movies such as “Om Shanti Om” and “Chennai Express” to Hollywood titles including “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” last year. She is also philanthropically active, starting her own Live Love Laugh Foundation, which focuses on mental illness (sic)."
Way to go Deepika. Kudos!
