Over the years, Rashmika has emerged as one of the leading actresses with her sheer dedication and commitment. She has never let her personal life overshadow her career, rather her personal trials have led her to become more focused on her work and achieve the highest success.    

Adding another feather to her hat, Rashmika is now gearing up for her Bollywood debut also opposite Siddhart Malhotra in Mission Majnu. She also has another Bollywood movie 'Goodbye' with Amitabh Bachchan. 

Apart from these, Rashmika is also part of one most anticipated film of the year 'Pushpa' alongside Stylish Star Allu Arjun. 

Similarly, Deepika Padukone had a dream debut in Bollywood with SRK starrer Om Shanti Om. After that, she did Bachna Ae Haseeno and met Ranbir Kapoor. During the shoot of the movie, love bloomed between them and the two started painting the town red.

Deepika spoke openly about her relationship and sported a tattoo of his initials on the nape of her neck. However, in 2009, they broke up and she went into depression. 

Post her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor, she completely focussed on her craft and worked hard to put her best foot forward.

She also ventured into Hollywood with xXx: Return of Xander Cage opposite Vin Diesel and become one of the top Indian artists to collaborate in many projects with many foreign brands. 

Deepika, who is the reigning queen of Bollywood with movies like Padmavaat, Bajirao Mastaani, Tamasha, Piku to her credit, also tried to dabble her hand in production. She is the producer of Chhapaak in which she played the lead character - an acid-attack victim-survivor.

Deepika, who is now happily married, had also once admitted that her break-up with Ranbir badly affected her but she didn't let it affect her professional life and emerged stronger post the break-up.
