Days after hospitalization and divorce rumors, Deepika Padukone attended The Business of Fashion event in Paris along with several prominent celebrities including Kylie Jenner, Jared Leto, Jaden Smith, Natasha Poonawalla, Charli XCX and Ellie Goulding among many others. Fan accounts shared numerous photos of the Bollywood star posing with the guests, along with photos from the Business of Fashion main page. Other celebrities included FKA Twigs, social media influencer Khaby Lame, Ashley Graham, Coco Rocha, Hari Nef, Jasmine Tookes, Jordan Barrett, Georgia May Jagger and Jourdan Dunn.
Deepika, who looked ravishing in a gold top and black heels, shared how her work has tried to break the glass ceiling.
In response to a question about raising the profile of Indian actors abroad, she said, “I’ve always started doing what I do with a purpose and always try to do things differently the way they’ve always been done. I’ve always wondered why there hasn’t been enough representation, why casting has always been a certain way, why we don’t see enough. I don’t think I’ve been bitter about it.” She added that she would like to achieve a goal in her profession. “I wake up every morning with a purpose and want to make a difference in the lives of millions of girls like me,” she said, also mentioning her appearance at Cannes 2022, where she served as a jury and said she was grateful.
On the work front, Deepika Pathaan has lined up with Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham in 2023, along with Fighter, starring Hrithik Roshan. The actor was last seen in the movie Gehraiyaan, directed by Shakun Batra.
