Deepika Padukone: Journey of Balancing Dreams and Sacrifices

Deepika Padukone, a prominent name in the realm of Bollywood, has established herself as a top-tier actress, an international brand ambassador, and even a producer. Her meteoric rise to stardom, however, came at a cost – a sacrifice she candidly shared in an old video that has resurfaced on social media. In the video, from the 2017 book launch of Hema Malini’s biography “Beyond The Dream Girl,” Deepika reflects on her educational journey and how she traded college for her career ambitions.

Dressed elegantly in a red Banarasi saree, Deepika exudes a timeless grace as she discusses the essence of success. She emphasizes that achieving success invariably demands sacrifices and unwavering dedication. In a candid admission, she reveals, “You know, like I said there are sacrifices. You have to be extremely dedicated. For example, I haven’t gone to college.” This statement encapsulates a significant juncture in her life – a decision that would eventually shape her trajectory in the entertainment industry.

As she traces her path, Deepika recalls her foray into the world of modeling, a journey that overlapped with her education. She managed to complete her 11th and 12th grades, but the demands of a burgeoning modeling career, coupled with frequent travel to Mumbai and Delhi, posed an arduous challenge. The pursuit of two parallel dreams, education and modeling, proved to be a Herculean task. “I finished my 11th and 12th. And even during my 11th and 12th, I just about managed to finish because I was already a very successful model by that time and I was based in Bangalore. But I used to keep traveling to Mumbai and Delhi for work. And I couldn’t keep up,” she reminisces.

Deepika’s tenacity shines as she details her attempts to continue her education through alternative means. Distance education was a viable option, yet it too proved to be elusive. She acknowledges her parents’ concerns, as they held firm to the belief that a foundational degree was essential. “I tried to do one year of my degree through college. I couldn’t do that. Then I tried to do distance education. I couldn’t complete that as well. So, I am just a 12th pass,” she admits with a hint of introspection.

Amidst the struggle to balance her aspirations, Deepika’s parents played a pivotal role. Their unwavering support became a cornerstone in her journey to success. Initially hesitant about her unconventional choices, they gradually recognized her passion and determination. Deepika acknowledges their evolution, noting, “My parents had a big issue with that; they always wanted me to start working only after a basic degree. But along the way, they realized how passionate I was about what I wanted to do. And I think I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I did without their support,” she shares, her smile radiating gratitude.
