Padukone made her Bollywood debut in 2007 opposite SRK in ‘Om Shanti Om’. The blockbuster revolves around a struggling actor, played by Shah Rukh, who falls in love with a successful actress Shantipriya (played by Deepika). But before his love could blossom and his career flourish, he dies in an accident.

Thirty years later, he’s reborn and avenges Shantipriya’s death. After ‘Om Shanti Om’, SRK and Deepika reunited in films like ‘ Chennai Express’ (2013) and ‘Happy New Year’ (2014).
