The dimpled beauty made her Bollywood debut in 2007 film Om Shanti Om co-starring Shah Rukh Khan. However, that was not her first break as she got her first big break in Himesh Reshammiya's music video Naam Hai Tere Tera. It was with that video that Farah Khan and SRK noticed her and cast her for her first film.
Deepika is currently on a promotional spree for her upcoming film Chhapaak, and recently made an appearance on the sets of Indian Idol. The singing reality show has Vishal Dadlani, Himesh Reshammiya, and Neha Kakkar as the judges.
Deepika reunited with Himesh on the sets of Indian Idol and also thanked him for giving her her first break and revealed that it was only after the music video of Naam Hai Tera Tera that Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan noticed her and cast her for Om Shanti Om.
Besides, Himesh posted a picture with DP and stated that she will win the National Award for Chhapaak as well. Sharing a picture on his Instagram, Himesh wrote: “Deepika is going to take the national award and every award of the country for chhapaak , she is historic, from naam hai tera to chapaak , so proud of her, super talent she is , truely blessed , Hats of to Meghna Gulzar , loved the trailer , looking forward to the film , Watch Indian idol sat sunday , amazing talent , amazing show , cheers.”

He also shared another picture and wrote, “It was fun to perform naam hai tera again with Deepika , she is such an incredible talent , so proud of her , chhapaak is mindblowing , what a performer she is , looking forward to the film , lots of love.”
Speaking of Chhapaak, the story is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the movie stars Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey in lead roles.
Meanwhile, Chhapaak received a U certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification with no cuts. Meghna said getting a U certificate is an “immense validation”, especially for a film like Chhapaak which could have been perceived as “difficult and graphic” due to its storyline. “This validation by the CBFC, that everyone should be able to see this film, is a valuable encouragement for Chhapaak,” the filmmaker said in a statement.
Chhapaak is set to hit theatres on January 10, 2020.
