Deepika Padukone becomes the only Indian actress to get featured in the Variety International Women’s Impact Report 2021, second time in the row
Deepika Padukone features in Variety’s list of women who made an impact on the world’s entertainment scene. Excitement and greetings are galore for Dippy, as the actress is getting lauded, for her contribution to the cinema and for partaking in philanthropic efforts in the Variety International Women’s Impact Report of 2021. The actress is also one of the only two Indians to have graced the list.
The actor-producer posted, “Humbled and honoured to be featured in Variety’s International Women’s Impact Report 2021.” The list mentions her film Chhapaak (2020) and quotes her as saying, “I’ve never had to make decisions based on the budget of a film or for various other reasons. It also depends on where I am emotionally in my life. A lot of my choices are dictated by that.”
Over the years, Deepika has made her voice heard, which has created a global impact, be it with her movies choices or her foundation ‘Live Laugh Love’, via which she began the dialogue around mental health back in 2015. Being one of the most loved and revered actors of the industry, Deepika has always made the country proud in some way or the other. Be it her sartorial, philanthropic or movie choices, the actress’ steps are considered one of the most sought after.
Over the last 14 years since her debut, Deepika has emerged as one of the most bankable faces globally. From featuring on such a revered global list to becoming the most valued actress according to the report by Duff and Phelps, Deepika has raised the bar only higher. The report honoured 50 women across the globe for their impact on their respective fields. The recognition came in time to mark International Women’s Day which fell on March 08.
