Currently Deepika is the most bankable actress



The Bollywood leading actress Deepika Padukone is the queen of the box office at present after debuting in Om Shanti Om in 2007. She has taken eight years to achieve a lot which many actors in Bollywood could not achieve. She gave 21 films in eight years from which many were got admiration and she performed very well. Some went down. She has won several awards for her performances and critically admiration as well. Now she includes in top Bollywood actresses by performance and by finances. The actress who has just turned 30 has now achieved the prestigious tag of being the most bankable actress from the present generation of actresses.  Akshaye Rathi analysis on her career by saying that “I must admit that when she started off in Om Shanti Om, Chandni Chowk To China and Lafangey Parindey, going by the performances in a couple of films earlier down in her career, I never thought in my wildest imagination that she would become the actress and the star that she is. If you see her performances, then and now, you see a mark and clear difference in the efforts she has taken to raise the standards of her performance. She has now brought it to a level where she is nothing but the best.”

Her popularity doesn’t only include evolution but also her performance and her choice of films to her box office appeal. The model come actress gave ten hits from Race 2 (2013) to Bajirao Mastani (2015). The analyst continued by saying that “In terms of performance, in terms of bankability, she is the actress currently. You have to give credit to her as she has become the best superstar amongst the ladies that we have in the industry currently. There are a lot of people who are talented and there are a lot of people who work really hard and she is a combination of both. This is what makes her the true superstar that she is because every film that you see now, be it Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani or a complete contrast film like a Bajirao Mastani, to a completely different zone like Race 2 to a Finding Fanny, in that sense of her versatility and box office appeal, the combination is lethal. If she continues to tap into films like these, which are a fantastic balance of performance-driven films and box office appeal, I think she is going to maintain her position as the reigning superstar among the ladies!”

She has ruled Bollywood in 2015 and there are expectations that she with rule 2016 with plans to scale more heights.
