Even the biggest of stars have meltdowns, and Deepika Padukone just had one recently. With all the controversy surrounding Padmavati, and deferment of the release date of the film, she perhaps had every reason to, but that was not the real reason why she broke down. Deepika broke down in front of none other than Shah Rukh Khan, during a talk show Dil Ki Baatein that King Khan was conducting.
The actress who looked stunning in a Bibhu Mohapatra gown and was in very good spirits, got very emotional when Shah Rukh read out a letter for her written by her mom, Ujwala, on the show. In the letter, Mrs Padukone writes to Deepika that she is proud and happy that her daughter has scaled great heights in her field, but also reminds Deepika how she was a tomboy in her childhood. She also reflects on Deepika’s journey and says that she has sacrificed a lot to get there. She also mentions how Deepika has been single-handed operating and running her office and home respectively.
The perfect gentleman that King Khan is, he immediately got down to console her and showered her with hugs on the show.
The superstar has been hosting some of his favourites, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Madhuri Dixit on his show, Dil Ki Baatein with the Baadshah as part of the Lux Golden Divas. The first episode had Deepika Padukone as the guest.
On another occasion, when collecting the Best Actress Award for Piku in 2016, DP had got emotional, while reading out a letter by her dad as a Thank You Note. Thank you DP for reminding us that behind the big star that you are, you still are just an ordinary girl, and we love you for that.
