Deepika Padukone made her debut with one of the most thoughprovoking movies ever – Om Shanti Om, and that too opposite Shah Rukh Khan. That movie was a supernatural thriller that took a ghostly turn at the climax. Since then, Padukone, daughter of badminton champion Prakash Padukone, has gone from strength to strength. She has been paired opposite the greatest and the latest in Bollywood. Here, we look at the five incredibly successful Bollywood movies starring Deepika Padukone.
Top Deepika Padukone Movies
- Om Shanti Om
Of course this movie makes the list. Om Shanti Om was an incredibly successful movie, especially for a debutante actress. It was also the darling of the award ceremonies. Deepika Padukone truly made a splash with this one. In the movie, she plays a double role – that of a young woman trying to get a break and one of an actress who’s spurned by her actor-lover and things take a nasty turn.
- Love Aaj Kal
Deepika Padukone is the perfect person to play the urban, headstrong character – though she has also played the headstrong rural character opposite now husband Goliyon ki Raasleela -Raamleela. But it is movies like Love Aaj Kal that broke the bonds for her. She does an amazing job opposite Saif Ali Khan in the Imtiaz Ali movie. Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal was the story of two couples who live in different centuries. Saif Ali Khan portrayed the roles of both the men, and Deepika played the role of the modern lover.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is one of the many highest grossing Indian movies. It tells the story of a quartet who are looking for love and trying to live life on their own terms. It pairs Ranbir Kapoor with Deepika Padukone and stars Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur. Deepika Padukone is at her raucuous best with this movie.
