When she stepped in to play the role of 'Shantipriya' in her debut Bollywood blockbuster film, Om Shaanti Om, she probably would not have even dreamt of the milestones which she has achieved today. From bagging a role in Hollywood, to now being nominated for the same—she sure has proven her mettle, and given everybody a darn good reason to fan-girl over her!
Deepika Padukone played the role of 'Serena Unger' in her Hollywood debut, xXx: Return of Xander Cage opposite Vin Diesel and recently got nominated for it at the Teen's Choice Awards 2017 in the Choice Action Actress category. Whoa!
The board announced the same on their official Twitter account , and Deepika's fans went crazy.
Deepika is up against the much-loved and critically acclaimed 'Wonder Woman'— Gal Gadot, who also got nominated in the same category and it sure looks like a tough fight!
Others competing in the category are Michelle Rodriguez for Fate of the Furious and Kaya Scodelario for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, amongst others.
Her counterpart, Priyanka Chopra on the other hand has not been nominated under any category for her role as the antagonist, 'Victoria Leeds' in Baywatch. PeeCee fans will surely be disappointed with that.
It is indeed a big accolade to own, if someone is not just breaking records in their home-ground, but also being appreciated abroad in competition with established International stars!
Deepika will also be a part of the fourth installment of the xXx franchise, as announced by the director, DJ Caruso and all we can do is hope she bags the esteemed title, and continue to enthral us with her kick*ss performances!
You go, girl.
