In less than years Deepika Padukone has simply raced into the list of top five actresses. Her career graph shows an amazing ascent with a hit to flop ratio that many of the other actresses (from the same list!) can only dream of.
Out of her already released films, she has had three big successes in OM SHANTI OM, LOVE AAJ KAL and HOUSEFULL and an average grosser in BACHNA AE HASEENO. The only failure or blot is CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA. This data is enough to substantiate our claim that Deepika has indeed climbed into the top five position and will soon be threatening the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor and even Katrina Kaif the unquestionable numero uno.
With other top heroines like Kajol, Rani Mukerjee and Preity Zinta into semi-retirement by choice and doing very few films, the rat race for the top is open and Deepika is a serious contender with more potential hits like Ashutosh Gowariker's KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SE, Yash Raj Films' forthcoming film LAFANGEY PARINDEY and Big Pictures' BREAK KE BAAD .
As of now we can only wish Deepika all the best and wait and watch if she dislodges the reigning queens of Bollywood.
