While Deepika Padukone had been delivering hits for a while, it was Chennai Express that sort of cemented her position as the most bankable actress in the industry. Having already delivered great performances in Cocktail and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, her Meenamma in Chennai Express took the cake.
Chennai Express did extremely well at the Box Office and also became some sort of a social media sensation. It also ensured that scripts keep coming to her. On Chennai Express’s 8th anniversary, Deepika Padukone has shared a story to celebrate the movie.
On the work front, Deepika has an exciting slate of films from Mahabharata, Nag Ashwin’s Pan-Indian next with Prabhas, The Intern remake (with Amitabh Bachchan), Pathan with Shahrukh, Shakun Batra’s next and Fighter with Hrithik Roshan.
