Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, and reigning actress Deepika Padukone have always made headlines for the bond they share with each other. Whether its on screen or off screens, Deepika and SRK have always stood by each other. Recently, on the sidelines of an award show, Chennai Express actor, Shah Rukh Khan spoke to Deepika about her journey in Bollywood.
Shah Rukh Khan also read out a heartwarming letter to her, written by Deepika’s mother Ujjala Padukone. In that letter, Deepika’s mother said that she is extremely proud of what her daughter is today. She expressed her happiness by saying it is a proud moment for her to know that her daughter had scaled great heights in her field of work.
Her mother also said how Deepika Padukone sacrificed to achieve success in life. She also added how Deepika had been single-handedly operating and running her office and house. While Shah Rukh Khan was reading out this letter to her, Deepika Padukone was left with teary eyes. She literally broke down in front of Shah Rukh Khan. Being a gentleman he is, SRK stood up from his seat and wiped off her tears.
Apart from what Deepika’s mother said in the letter, here is what she recently said to a leading daily,
“We all inspire each other in different ways, but it’s my mother who inspires me the most. She is the backbone of our family. My father is a celebrity and my sister started her golf career, but my mother was never in the spotlight. She is happy taking a backseat. My mother is the real hero in my family.”
