In an adorable gesture, Deepika shared a throwback photograph on Instagram where she is seen as a toddler posing for the camera along with her young dad.

The actor captioned the picture as, “Happy Birthday Pappa…I Love You!” Within an hour of sharing, the picture scored around 50k likes. Deepika, who was herself a national-level badminton player, often gives credit to her sports background for inculcating discipline and never-say-die spirit in her professional acting career. Both Deepika and Prakash have also been featured in several ads. While accepting Best Actress Award for her performance in Piku, Deepika made an emotional acceptance speech by reading a letter from her father.

“As you stand on the threshold of life’s journey, I want to share with you some lessons that life has taught me…. Looking back, I realise that the most important thing about my childhood and adolescent years was my refusal to complain about my lot in life…there is no substitute for perseverance, hard work, determination, and passion for what you choose to do. If you love what you do, nothing else matters — not awards, nor compensation, not even the gratification of seeing your face in newspapers or television,” a teary-eyed Deepika read from the letter.

        Best way to gift her father for the birthday - package herself with the most vulgar cr commercial offer from a magazine to sell off your curves for money and fame! Wonder what Padukone Sr. had to say about her daughters behind plastered for the public to adore? Did he find them.... beautiful? OR did he then think - meri beti ki marzi woh apna jo jisko jaise dikhana chahati hai waisa hi karegi! ... In either scenario shows very poor upbringing.

          @Pronut. Ur thinking sucks. When Deeps was a model, she wore less clothings for her ads. Come on dude, grow up. This is 2017. Her dad is very proud of her.

              Protonut grow up. Smell coffee. Proto is fossilised state of nut. You are not even a nut yet. Unmask first.
