In 2004, while studying for her Bachelors of Arts degree from the Indira Gandhi National Open University, Deepika dropped out to pursue her modeling career. In 2005, she won Model of the Year at the Kingfisher Fashion Awards. A few years later, she moved to Mumbai to stay with her aunt and gained huge popularity for appearing in Himesh Reshammiya`s "Naam hai Tera" music video.

Her mother, Ujjala, is a travel agent and her sister, Anisha, is a golf player, who plans to lead a non-filmy life. The actress says that she has a great relationship with her family and visits them in Bangalore as often as she can.

One of Bollywood`s leading actresses, Deepika Padukone started dating co-star Ranbir Kapoor in 2008, during the filming of Bachna Ae Haseeno.

They, however, claim to be on good terms together and have worked on several films with one another, since.

The actress was also involved with business mogul Vijay Mallya`s son Siddharth Mallya until they broke up in early 2012. Deepika was even reportedly gifted a luxury home Prabhadevi by him, worth around 16 crores.
