Deepika was born to parents Prakash Padukone and Ujjala Padukone in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1986 but her parents shifted to Bengaluru within a year or so of her birth. So earlier, there was a rumor that the actress holds a Danish passport and not being an Indian citizen she won’t be able to cast her vote. But finally, the actress cleared air!
Recently in an interview, the ‘Chhapaak’ star asserted, “I have an Indian passport. There are a lot of complications but I’m a proud Indian citizen.”
