Deepika featured in Variety’s International Women’s Impact Report 2018.

Deepika Padukone was in the top 50 women of the entertainment industry to be 'leading the way for women's rights'. The list included female celebrities from all over such as Salma Hayek, Emma Watson, Guneet Monga, Gal Gadot, and J K Rowling.

Deepika's introduction at the event was extremely humbling. The wrote, "The star of the recent Bollywood blockbuster 'Padmaavat' faced death threats and verbal abuse from various fringe groups with poise and elan. Padukone, whose father, Prakash, was a star badminton player, used to participate in the sport before becoming a model. She is now one of the highest-paid Indian actresses and has made the leap from Bollywood movies such as 'Om Shanti Om' and 'Chennai Express' to Hollywood titles including 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' last year. She is also philanthropically active, starting her own Live Laugh Love Foundation, which focuses on mental illness."

Deepika was overwhelmed by this and took to twitter to speak about her feelings. Check out the tweet right here.
