Sisters are the best thing that can happen to any woman in this world. Only a sister can help you with your deepest and darkest secrets, and you guys can share anything and everything with each other. Many of our Tinseltown siblings have been giving us #sistergoals, to name a few- Shilpa Shetty-Shamita Shetty, Malaika Arora-Amrita Arora, among others.

One such sibling pair is Deepika Padukone and Anisha Padukone, and the two have always spoken reverently about each other at various platforms. In fact, in an interview with News 18, Anisha Padukone had once called Deepika Padukone a 'global social influencer'. She had 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.”
Deepika Padukone is in Cannes these days attending the Cannes Film Festival 2019. And guess what? Even during her busy schedule, she didn't forget to reply to her darling sister, Anisha's tweet. Anisha Padukone took to Twitter to write, "It’s that time of the year when I google how to pronounce #Cannes @Festival_Cannes #CannesFilmFestival2019." The elder sister, Deepika Padukone wittily replied, "Come with me smallie...il teach you! @anishapadukone."
Deepika and Anisha's social media banter is always adorable. For instance, on May 22, 2018, Deepika had posted the picture as her Instagram story and a post which she captioned as, “after a hard day at work, this is what my little sister sends me!!! love you AP! @anishapadukone.” (Recommended Read: Alaia Furniturewala's Unique Way To Reunite Mom Pooja Bedi And Her Father Kabir Bedi, Details Inside)
Anisha Padukone has always been candid about her equation with Deepika Padukone. When Deepika was battling depression, Anisha had shared with a media portal, “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.”
In a throwback interview, Anisha had shared how she and her family were clear on the two sisters' career path. The former had said, “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. 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."
Talking about her family and her sister, Anisha, Deepika once shared with the Indian Express, “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.” (Don't Miss: Arjun Kapoor's BF, Malaika Arora And Sister, Anshula Together At 'India's Most Wanted' Screening)
