Real inspiration is my mother – Deepika Padukone


Beautiful actress Deepika Padukone who recently played a role of caring daughter in Bollywood movie ‘PIKU’ says my mother is real hero in family. She is the one person who keeps the family together and inspires her a lot.

“We all inspire each other in different ways, but it’s my mother who inspires me the most. She is the backbone of our family. My father is a celebrity and my sister started her golf career, but my mother was never in the spotlight”, said the fit actress.

Highly inspired from her mother, Deepika’s mother is a former badminton ace Prakash Padukone and has a sister who is a golf player.

After honoured with Women of the Year award at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), the actress told the reporters that “She is happy taking a backseat. My mother is the real hero in my family.”

Doing different types of roles gave a lot of experience to her. “‘Om shanti Om’ wasn’t quintessential debut film. I played double role in the film. One was classic and the other one contemporary. I like to do films with challenging roles. I know I’ve made mistakes, but I am proud of those films as they taught me something. I don’t come from a film background and I didn’t even know how to deliver dialogues, so it has been a learning experience”, the actress added.

“’Cocktail’ is the turning point of my career and the most recent is ‘Piku’,” she further added.
