Ever wondered how your favorite celebrities are behind that face of glamor? Well, several fans have aroused this question on Quora about Deepika Padukone. Well, hail all the Padukone fans, here are a few tidbits of Deepika Padukone for you.
Here’s what his ex-classmate says,
She was my classmate at Mount Carmel College for 6 months before she moved to Bombay for OSO. She used to keep bunking classes due to her professional commitments- badminton and modeling. I think she lost a lot of attendance because of that and that’s why decided to leave college…
But on the days that she used to visit college- she would come straight from the baddy court at Padukone Academy that’s down the road- she would be sweaty and still in her track pants. This is quite a big deal because MCC is like a fashion capital in Bangalore and all the girls are always dressed to the nines- a lot of them used to wear 4-5 inch heels as well, and this super model would be in black track pants with jacket and zero make-up, her hair in a braid or a ponytail.
I once stood behind her in a queue to pay fees and I literally couldn’t see anything in front of me- she is that tall!
I always felt she was quiet and well-mannered. Sitting on the last bench, not very studious, but a sweet girl.
That doesn’t mean she didn’t have fun! She had a lot of male attention, but then all MCC girls got a lot of male attention- guys would flock outside the gates of the college…
This wasn’t all, here’s another thread from Quora which describes her best.
I was once working as a freelance waiter(that’s how I call it) for a catering company. I got this job to work at the premier of a shitty Indian movie called Shaadi No. 1. Now, this was November 2005 – Way before Deepika Padukone was a known name. But she was amongst the top Indian models at that time.
I remember I was serving some starters when I passed by her. Recalling only her last name from mostly page-3s of Bombay Times (where she’s be heavily featured in those days), I turned around and asked “Ms. Padukone?!” She smiled and nodded. Such a beautiful face, I tell you! And she was wearing traditional attire – a simple churidar dress – quite unusual for a model. I told her that she was my favorite model. She thanked me and asked if we had any cold coffee.
For the next 10-15 minutes, I was running around and searching for a glass of the desired beverage. Unfortunately, it was not on the menu. Dejected, I returned and informed her. Seeing my sorry face, she patted my shoulder and said that it was okay and that she would buy it later on. I was surprised by the lack of tantrums I expected from a top model like her. She smiled, thanked me again, and went to watch the movie.
When we see celebrities on the screen, it is hard to imagine how they’d be in real life, right? However such responses remind us that they are humans too. Right?
