Deepika Padukone Drops A Truth Bomb: I Was Advised To Get A Boob Job

Deepika Padukone is one of the world's top-paid actresses, she's delivered back-to-back Bollywood hits with Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani. She has established her fashionista credentials on the international red carpet- she arrived at the MET Gala looking resplendent in a red Prabal Gurung gown and who could forget her pink ensemble at Cannes?

To those looking at her career from outside, it's been a dream run but the misogyny that runs deep in Bollywood did not spare even Deepika Padukone. In an interview with an British publication, the star revealed that she was advised to get breast implants to boost her career.

"There were lots of things I was advised [to do]. To get a boob job, do the beauty pageants. They felt it was the right way to be recognised or picked up by a Bollywood director or producer. It might be an easier way to achieve what you want to achieve. But I haven't been that person; I've always followed my gut," said Deepika.

She went on to state that Bollywood was not always part of her plan:

"For a large part of my life I was an athlete - I don't think anyone thought I would become a model and then an actor. [But] I always knew that was what I'd end up doing. It was really weird. It just felt really familiar. I made the decision when I was 17 or 18. At that age you just want to pursue your dreams and move away from home. You think that it's really cool. But I think the decision, the largeness of that decision - I only realise that now."

She also opened about her depression - she was one of the first Bollywood stars who openly spoke about her mental illness, stating: "There was a lot happening (in 2014) - people thought professionally it was one of the best years of my life. I was on a career high but that's the thing about depression - there are no warning signs. It just comes and it has nothing to do with how much money you have or how successful you are... It can affect literally anyone."

Kudos to Deepika for speaking her mind!
