Even the Badshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan could not keep his eyes away from her as she stepped out of the car in Om Shanti Om and sang an ode to Deepika Padukone’s lovely eyes. And the audience joined him as he hummed Aankhon mein teri.. for her. So it doesn’t come as a surprise really, that the leggy beauty was awarded the Glam Debutante (Female) award at the Reebok Zoom Glam Awards 2008. First of all, she wants to thank Zoom for this award. If it’s the most glamourous debutante award, then she thinks she also need to give credit to Bharat and Doris and to Manish Malhotra that said this talented actress after receiving the award. Not only is she talented, she’s modest as well. When asked how many points would she give herself on a scale of 1-10, when it comes to her glam quotient, she said that she doesn’t think she is very glamourous, but after winning this, probably one on 10.
Deepika says that she grew up watching Sushmita Sen and Rekha and considers them very stylish. Both of them are extremely glamourous and confident in whatever they do, she added. Confidence seems to be Deepika’s middle name too. After all, before rubbing shoulders with SRK in OSO, she was already being touted as a supermodel in the modelling industry.
