We all know that Deepika Padukone has a huge fan following, and we won’t be wrong if we say that she has truly earned each one of them. But what sets her apart from her contemporaries is the way she connects with her fans and reciprocates their love for her.
She has always been connected to her fans through social networking websites – Facebook and Twitter. The actress, on a regular basis, chats with her fans online and “retweets” the joy of the love she receives from her fans.
In the history of Indian Cinema, none of the actresses have taken a fan along with them at an award function. But, Deepika did it last year. And the fan was not just taken for the sake of it. The young girl, Prerna, was with Deepika on the red carpet, and also posed with the actress for shutterbugs. Later when Deepika received the award, she called Prerna on stage. The actress made Prerna feel special. The lucky fan was also sitting with Deepika throughout the award function in the first row of the audience.
Actors always thank their producers, directors and co-stars. But, you know what, Deepika also thanked her fans! She has set an example for other actors on how to show love for fans who make them the ‘popular’ stars they are today.
Deepika, you are undoubtedly a fabulously versatile actor; but these gestures also prove that you are a truly sweet person in real life.
