She is the latest actor to join the cast of Kabir Khan’s ’83 and is all set to appear on screen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak; early next year. She was recently spotted at Mumbai with her father, Prakash Padukone, after a video surfaced in which she is being asked for ID by a member of the airport security team. The video has since gone viral and DP has been lauded for the way she handled the situation.
Clad in all black, Deepika was seen heading to Bengaluru with her father and the two were all smiles as they posed for the paparazzi. As she proceeded to enter the airport, a member of the CISF personnel shouted, “ID, ID?” By this time, the Piku star had entered the airport with her father who was headed to the security check-in. In response, Deepika turned aroun and asked, “chahiye kya? (You want it?).” She then reaches inside her bag for her ID card and hands it over to the security staff. After a quick check of her document, DP returned to join her father inside.
