Global March: Deepika Padukone On TIME Cover
India-West News Desk
NEW YORK, NY – Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has been featured on the cover of TIME Magazine.
With this, Deepika joins the elite club of global figures like Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and several other personalities who’ve featured on the noted magazine.
It was in 2022 when Deepika was named in ‘The Time100 Impact Award’ for her achievements in cinema and work in mental health advocacy.
The article on the star begins with, “Deepika Padukone never set out to take India to the world. She wanted the world to come to India,” and points to the irony of how despite not hankering for Hollywood she has become an international star nevertheless. “Indian cinema has transcended borders and Indians are everywhere, so the fame goes wherever you go,” she is quoted as saying, quietly explaining her stardom.
The magazine documents several of her international projects: Hollywood appearances, the Oscar presentation, and being the brand ambassador for several high-profile labels like LV, Levi’s, Adidas, L’Oreal, and Tissot. But it also talks about the difference she is making by being open about her mental health and working with a foundation to help others.
On the acting front, Deepika’s latest release ‘Pathaan’ with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan turned out to be a blockbuster. She is now gearing up for her next ‘Fighter’, where she will be seen starring alongside Hrithik Roshan and Anil Kapoor. She will also be seen in ‘Project K’ starring Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan.
