Days after hospitalization and separation rumors, Deepika Padukone attended The Business of Fashion event held in Paris along with several prominent celebrities including Kylie Jenner, Jared Leto, Jaden Smith, Natasha Poonawalla, Charli XCX, and Ellie Goulding among many others.
Deepika, who looked ravishing in a gold top and black heels, talked about how she has tried to break the glass ceiling with her work.
Responding to a question about raising the profile of Indian actors abroad, she said, “I have always set out to do what I do with purpose and always trying to do things differently in the way that they have always been done. I’ve always questioned why there has not been enough representation, why casting has always been a certain way, and why we are not seeing enough. I don’t think I’ve been bitter about it.”
She added that she would like to bring about a purpose in her craft. “I wake up every morning with purpose and want to make a difference in the lives of millions of girls like me.”
On the work front, Deepika has ‘Pathaan’ with Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham lined up in 2023, along with ‘Fighter’, starring Hrithik Roshan. The actor was last seen in the film ‘Gehraiyaan’.
