Deepika Padukone flaunts her love for sports – Here’s how

Mumbai: Deepika Padukone hails from a family of sportspersons. The dimpled beauty of Bollywood, who is now one of the most sought after actresses in India, was into sports in her growing up years.

Daughter of badminton champion Prakash Padukone, Deepika has always flaunted her love for sports proudly. And now, she has gone a step further to express her passion for sports.

Dippy dear, who is now an internationally acclaimed actress - thanks to her debut Hollywood flick xXx: Return of Xander Cage, took to Instagram to share a glimpse of “customised NIKEiDs, DP5” that are a reminder of everything sport has given to her.

The ‘Piku’ actress’s Instagram post read: “I was born into sport. My father played for the country. I played through my growing years. And so quite naturally my childhood as an athlete set the tone for the rest of my life. Sport has seen me through my toughest times, helped me handle my victories and kept my feet firmly rooted to the ground. It has influenced my life in unimaginable ways. Which is why my customised NIKEiDs, DP5, are a reminder of everything sport has given me...

Deepika had displayed her love for badminton in her film ‘Piku’ where she’s seen playing the sport with her co-star Irrfan Khan.
