Deepika Padukone is one of the most powerful actresses of Bollywood. Along with her gorgeous looks, it is her dedication towards her work that has won her a huge fan following. Deepika had proved her mettle with her debut film, Om Shaanti Om, and since there has been no looking back for the gorgeous actress. The beautiful actress has always credited her parents for keeping her grounded despite her huge fandom. Deepika loves sharing throwback pictures and a recent one just surprised us.
On May 16, 2020, Deepika Padukone took to her Instagram handle and shared a throwback family picture. In the picture, a 13-year-old Deepika was seen sitting with her parents, Prakash and Ujjala Padukone and sister, Anisha Padukone. But what caught our eyes was the presence of actor, Aamir Khan in their family album. Aamir, who had worn a white shirt and black pant was seen sitting next to Deepika as they posed for the camera. Along with the picture, Deepika wrote, “Major throwback to 1st January, 2000. I was 13 & awkward. I still am. He was having lunch. Curd Rice to be precise. I was hungry, like I always am. But he didn’t offer and I didn’t ask.”
Deepika will be seen in Kabir Khan’s film, 83 based on the life of Kapil Dev. This is her first film with hubby, Ranveer Singh post-marriage, where Ranveer will play the role of Kapil Dev and she will be playing his wife, Romi Dev. The movie is not just about Kapil’s cricketing career but also how his wife, Romi Bhatia played an important role in his life. Commenting on the same and juxtaposing it with her family and mother, Deepika Padukone in an interview with Filmfare had stated, "Yes, I have seen it from close quarters because of my parents. A support system that a wife or family is to an athlete often goes unnoticed. It was important for me to be a part of this film to highlight the personal journey athletes go through when they are playing and performing at such a high level. The focus is usually on the professional achievements, and we tend to ignore their personal and humane aspects, and the sacrifices an athlete and his/her family have to make to support one person’s dreams and ambitions."

The 33-year-old actress further added, "I have seen that with my mother (Ujjala Padukone). I don’t think my father could have been half the champion that he was if it wasn’t for my mom. She, along with my grandparents and his siblings, have played an integral role in his success. In fact, I always have the utmost respect for homemakers, as their job is the most selfless. To be the backbone of the family, while others step out to nurture their ambitions, and to be that person who puts others’ needs before their own, is a very selfless thing to do. It was important for me to tell this story to the audience."
Prior to her wedding, in an interview with Rajdeep Sardesai on his show, India Today India Tomorrow, Deepika had shared, “I'm excited in the same way as I'm excited about signing my next film. Marriage is something that I've always looked forward to in my life, as would any other girl." Further speaking about her inspiration towards a happy marriage, the Happy New Year star stated, “I've seen my parents do it so well and so successfully and I think for me, that's the way I would like my married life to be as well. My parents have a beautiful relationship. The way they have managed their professional life as well as being together as a family. They have set such amazing benchmarks that both I and my sister (Anisha Padukone) would like to follow."
