Actress Deepika Padukone has multiple reasons to celebrate. She turned a year older on Sunday and is starting the new year with the release of her special film “Chhapaak” that will launch her as a producer.

The year 2019 saw her taking up a new role — she became the chairperson of the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI), which organises the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star. In March, she unveiled her Statue of Purpose at Madame Tussauds in London. She also announced her second production — “Mahabharat”, to be made from Draupadi’s point of view.


Would she call 2019 the best year of her career, Deepika told IANS: “I don’t want to define it like that. The years 2013, 2014, 2015… I felt like those were the best years and it keeps getting better.”

She was referring to the time when she gave hit films like “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” (2013), “Chennai Express” (2013), “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” (2013), “Happy New Year” (2014), “Piku” (2015) and “Bajirao Mastani” (2015). And her films continue to create fireworks at the box office.

“If anything at all, I just want to keep growing, evolving and challenging myself. So I’d like to believe that best is yet to come,” said Deepika.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
