Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone recently set a new record by becoming the first Indian actress to be featured on the cover of International luxury brand Louis Vuitton. The actress will be featured in Louis Vuitton’s 2020 pre-fall campaign.
Talking about if she felt the pressure in representing the nation with this particular achievement, the actress shares, “I didn’t think of it like that. The brand would be better equipped to answer why they thought of me. It’s not only exciting, but an absolute privilege as these opportunities don’t present themselves very often. I appreciate the fact that somewhere in my journey of authenticity and honesty, I am being able to collaborate with iconic brands.”
On the word front, Deepika was last spotted in ‘Chhapaak’ in which she donned the character of Malti, an acid attack survivor. The film also started Vikrant Massey in a pivotal role and was helmed by Meghna Gulzar. It released on January 10.
Her next role will be that of Romi Dev in 83 which is all set to release on 10th April 2020. Post this she has Shakun Batra’s untitled next in which she will star alongside Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday. She also recently announced that she will be a part of the making of ‘The Intern’.
Talking about another achievement on the long list, the actress was invited and felicitated at the prestigious World Economic Forum 2020 recently with Annual Crystal Award for her contribution towards mental health awareness.
