Deepika Padukone is my personal favourite and I biasly believe that she is the best actress of the Indian film industry today. She has delivered some of the most memorable and excellent performances in films like ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Piku’ and the recent hit blockbuster Hollywood franchise, ‘XXX’. She is winning the hearts of people both nationally and internationally.

But we all are anxious to know what Deepika was like before the dimple queen stepped into Bollywood?
Well, several fans have their interests aroused after a question on Quora asked, “How is Deepika Padukone as a person in real life?”
An anonymous Quora user who claims to be Deepika’s former classmate provided some interesting details about the actress’ college days:
“She was my classmate at Mount Carmel College for 6 months before she moved to Bombay for OSO. She used to keep bunking classes due to her professional commitments- badminton and modelling. I think she lost a lot of attendance because of that and that’s why decided to leave college. But on the days that she used to visit college — she would come straight from the baddy court at Padukone Academy that’s down the road- she would be sweaty and still in her track pants. This is quite a big deal because MCC is like a fashion capital in Bangalore and all the girls are always dressed to the nines- a lot of them used to wear 4-5 inch heels as well, and this super model would be in black track pants with jacket and zero make-up, her hair in a braid or a ponytail.
I once stood behind her in a queue to pay fees and I literally couldn’t see anything in front of me — she is that tall! I always felt she was quiet and well-mannered. Sitting on the last bench, not very studious, but a sweet girl.
That doesn’t mean she didn’t have fun! She had a lot of male attention, but then all MCC girls got a lot of male attention- guys would flock outside the gates of the college…”

Since we all are used to look at celebrities in the limelight, on screen, with special effects and brilliant make-up, it’s really very hard to humanize them once we’ve put them up on the pedestal of an icon and accept that once upon a time even they were ordinary beings like us. However, answers like these remind us that at the end of the day, they’re human too. It is much incredible though!!
