- Deepika featured on this year's list of Time 100 Most Influential People
- "I've never really believed in self-acknowledgment," said Deepika
- "Today, I do feel a small sense of achievement," she added
"It is humbling to be acknowledged for the work that you do, and so, it's my absolute honour to be part of this prestigious list alongside such incredible achievers," she added. Deepika Padukone claimed global domination with her Hollywood debut - xXx: Return of Xander Cage last year. Vin Diesel was her co-star in the action-thriller, who played a cameo in this year's Time 100 Most Influential People. He wrote a piece for Deepika, a part of which reads: "Deepika is the best Earth has to offer. She's not just here to represent India; she's here to represent the world."
In his piece, Vin Diesel also added how he's glad to have struck a deal with Deepika before their film kicked off: "I want to do this movie, but if I do, you have to come to India," he was told.
In Bollywood, Deepika Padukone was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period piece "Padmaavat", which made over Rs 250 crores at the box office. She was next to star with Irrfan Khan in a film, which has now been postponed.
