Deepika Padukone has proved, with her recent choice of films, that she is well versed at her craft and will stay 'in the business' for a long time. The gorgeous actress and diva was recently chosen as the "Sexiest Actress" in a Bollywood magazine (Filmfare) poll. She won the poll with a smashing 31% of the votes while Katrina Kaif came second with 26%, followed by Priyanka Chopra with 18%, Kareena Kapoor Khan with 11%, Anushka Sharma with 7% and all the others with 7%. She was not only voted as the "Sexiest Bollywood Actress" but also coveted the title of "Best Actress" leaving behind high voltage contemporaries like Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut or Jacqueline Fernandez.

Considering her past image, Deepika was always seen as a good actress but never a sexy one until Cocktail arrived. It changed the game for Deepika and she upped her sexy act in Race 2. This started to create the image of a sexy and talented actress. Since then, not only has she maintained a standard of style in her movies but her off screen appearances have been nothing less than sexy too.

Not only did Deepika secure the top Bollywood actress poll, she also came close to winning the title of "Potential to Rock Hollywood". She came second to only Hrithik Roshan in this category.

It's well known that Deepika has pushed the envelope with her last Bollywood movie "Piku" which not only broke records at the box office but also proved that good scripts do work in Bollywood.

The movie has worked wonders for Deepika especially considering that many fans have gone ahead and named their kids after Deepika's character in the movie i.e. Piku.

Speaking about her future endeavours, Deepika currently has two movies in hand, one of which is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historic magnum opus "Bajirao Mastani" opposite Ranveer Singh and the other is Imtiaz Ali's "Tamasha" opposite heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor. Looking at the projects she now has in hand, we can surely say that she is here to rule for a long time and entertain her audiences like never before.
