Deepika Padukone and Virat Kohli have a reason to smile.
The celebrities have featured on Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2018
As soon as the list was out, global star Priyanka Chopra congratulated her dear friends Deepika Padukone, who became the only Indian actress to make it to the list, and Indian Cricket team captain, Virat Kohli.
Priyanka took to Twitter and congratulated both of them.
Her tweet read, “So happy and proud to see my friends @deepikapadukone and @imVkohli on the #Time100 list.. Big congratulations and so well deserved #DesiPower #Represent”
While breaking the good news to fans, Deepika posted a
picture on social media and captioned it, “forever grateful! @vindiesel #TIME100 @time”
“what an absolute honour!#TIME100 @time”
While praising her xXx: Return Of Xander Cage co-star
Deepika, Vin Diesel said, “When Deepika Padukone came in to read for one of the
Fast and the Furious films, I knew instantly I was in the presence of someone
very special. As soon as she entered the room, there was a synchronicity, a
synergy, a chemistry—it promised great things to come. Her schedule didn’t work
for that movie, but I never gave up. She was the first role we cast in xXx:
Return of Xander Cage. She said, ‘I want to do this movie, but if I do, you
have to come to India.’ Thank God I made that deal.”
Sachin Tendulkar wrote, “The U-19 World Cup in 2008 was very important for India, as it would define the next bunch of youngsters who would go on to represent the nation. That was the first time I watched this young, passionate player lead India. Today Virat Kohli is a household name and a champion in cricket. Even back then, his hunger for runs and consistency was remarkable, something that has become the hallmark of his game."
Virat took to Twitter to thank Sachin Tendulkar.
His tweet read, "Thank you @sachin_rt paaji for such warm and encouraging words. Truly honored for being able to make it to the @Time's 100 list. #Times100 #grateful 🙏😇"
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra has completed shooting for Quantico season 3. Now, she will return to India and make a Bollywood comeback with Salman Khan’s Bharat.
