Deepika, who is the daughter of former badminton champion Prakash Padukone, was born in Copenhagen, Denmark but grew up in Bengaluru before joining the film industry.

There were reports that the actress is a Danish passport holder hence she is not eligible to vote. However, Deepika in an interview with Ians, spoke about the rumour about her citizenship. She spoke, "I hold an Indian passport... from where do you get this information anyway. There's a lot of complication and I am very much an Indian, a proud Indian citizen."
