Deepika Padukone recently unveiled her wax statue at Madame Tussauds London and shared glimpses from the same on her Instagram handle. One look at the statue and its uncanny resemblance with the Padmaavat star will make it difficult for you to decipher which one is the real Deepika! The Bhanvanis and Padukones had flown off to London for the event and the superstar shared pictures from the same on her Instagram handle. Checkout a picture from the same here:
And now, sister, Anisha Padukone whom we couldn’t spot at the launch, took to her Instagram and posted something which every sister duo will resonate to! Sharing the picture, Anisha wrote, “As if one of her was not enough. Double trouble #madametussauds #waxstatue #london PC : @madametussauds.” To which, Deepika replied back with three cheeky emojis. Checkout a snapshot of the same here:
This is not the first time when Anisha Padukone took a dig at her sister, Deepika Padukone. Last year, the Cocktail star took to Instagram and shared a funny sister joke, which she captioned as, “After a hard day at work, this is what my little sister sends me!!! love you AP! @anishapadukone.” But Deepika was not spared by Anisha with just this! Anisha wrote a hilarious comment on Deepika’s post which could be read as, “True story! Don’t be fooled by all that grace and poise.” What followed was a series of ‘hahaha’ comments from stars such as Kriti Sanon, Nikitin Dheer, Nimrat Kaur and American supermodel and entrepreneur, Karlie Kloss.

How hilarious could this be! Deepika Padukone is 5 years elder to Anisha and is extremely protective about her younger sibling. In a throwback interview, Anisha had shared about her equation with Deepika, “We have a five-year age gap, so she is both like a friend and a mother to me. She is very protective of me, like a typical big sister. Though we are close, we only get to meet once every two-three months because of our schedules and how much we travel.” (Don't Miss: Esha Deol's Lovely Birthday Wish For Big Brother Abhay Deol, Shares An Unseen Throwback Picture)
Deepika Padukone had further added, “Though we don't discuss our work much, I'm a big critic when it comes to her films. I watch all of them and from her initial days, I would tell her what I liked and what I didn't. I would tell her, 'You could have done this much better' or 'I didn't really like that at all'. Of course, all this is from the point of view of an audience member, since I'm no expert on acting or cinema. However, I can be very critical and she always takes that very positively."
While we already know the Bollywood superstar, Deepika Padukone, her sister, Anisha is a golfer. In an interview with The Indian Express, Deepika had shared, “We made our own career choices because our parents gave us wings to fly. They did not burden us with their expectations. That’s what my grandparents did with my parents. My parents have given us a normal and disciplined childhood without much luxury, like any other middle-class family. My sister and I are different from each other. My parents could see that and encouraged it. I was inclined to the creative world. My sister, on other hand, is extremely calm and intelligent. She has become her own beautiful person today. A large part of my success is because my parents have been so supportive”. (Insteresting Read: Dear Sister!

Deepika Padukone has time and again shared in interviews what a great support system her sister, Anisha Padukone has been to her throughout her journey. The Bajirao Mastani actress, at one point in time had a tough time dealing with depression. In an interview with News 18, Anisha opened up for the first time about the same. She shared, “In her role as a global social influencer, she felt it was critical to share her story and thereby contribute to sparking (and sustaining) conversations on this key topic.” (You May Like: Priyanka Chopra Gets Hilariously Trolled On Pic With Mom-In-Law, Trolls Say She Looks Old As Her)
Anisha Padukone also spoke about how she and her parents coped with Deepika Padukone being diagnosed with clinical depression and shared, “Honestly, it was difficult for me as I had very little idea about mental illness and the role of a caregiver. Coping with mental illness affects both the individuals and members of their immediate family. There was not much information available where I could learn and equip myself to be of help. There were times when I felt helpless. Fortunately for us, my mother noticed something was wrong. We then approached a counsellor who is also a very close family friend and things worked out.” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt's Parents, Mahesh And Soni Post Heartfelt Wishes For Their 'Sunshine' On Her Birthday)
