Deepika, Kangana and Kalki Tell Us About Their 20 Year Old Selves

The super-poised celebrities you see today weren’t born this way—here’s what they were like at our age.


Deepika Padukone : “I was exactly the same, and if I could go back and change my 20-year-old self, I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s that 20-year-old Deepika’s decisions that have made me who I am today!”



Richa Chadda : “I was quite confident, actually. I was also really hard-working (but terribly insecure) and had a very Mean Girls-esque sense of humour!”



Kangana Ranaut : “Achingly vulnerable and emotionally wise. Also, I was very optimistic—I had an undying spirit about me, this sense that there was always a silver lining.” 


Nargis Fakhri : “I was free-spirited, and I had no fear. The sky was the limit. I was bartending and paying for college on my own, and living life to the fullest.”



Aditi Rao Hydari :  “Shy and quiet, but with fatter cheeks, and the propensity to get on a table and dance till sunrise.”



Kalki Koechlin : “I was shy and quiet, until I had a few drinks, then I would become the storyteller and the performer.”
