Happy Birthday, Deepika Padukone! 13 lesser known facts about the leggy lass

Bollywood hottie Deepika Padukone stepped into glamour world at the age of 17. The actress who was born with silver spoon and luck by her side, didn't have it easy in the tinsel-town.

After a long spell of bad films and bad decisions, Deepika hit back with Love Aaj Kal in 2009. Since then, there has been no looking back for her. Here are few lesser know facts about the current Bollywood queen Deepika Padukone.
