There’s no denying the success that Deepika Padukone has seen as a Bollywood actress. The stunner has not just taken the Indian film industry by storm, but has also starred in XXX: Return of Xander Cage along with Hollywood veteran Vin Diesel. Earlier this week, she even shared the news that she was appointed as part of the jury for the 75th Cannes Film Festival. 

While Deepika is known for being fit as a fiddle, she doesn’t shy away from enjoying her food and has often taken to her Instagram account to share her passion for it. Recently, Deepika revealed that she has been holidaying in Venice with a “Venice Photo Dump”. In the photo dump are photos of a burger and crinkle-cut fries. 

There are also a few pictures from her plane journey and sites in Venice, followed by a picture of chocolate ice cream in a waffle cone with a canal in the background. We couldn’t help but notice that the photo also shows off Deepika’s impeccable manicure. 

It seemed like Deepika was on an all girls trip, during which she enjoyed these treats. Her husband Ranveer Singh left an admiring comment on her post, too. 

This isn’t the first time that Deepika has been open about her love for food. A couple of weeks ago, she had posted a photo of chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream, which she captioned “BASIC 🤤”. Before that, she had shared a photo of a pizza and captioned it “*drools*”. It’s a common perception that Bollywood stars stay away from such treats, but Deepika has often proved that it’s okay to indulge once in a while. 

Deepika has also admitted to being an enthusiastic cook and Ranveer Singh has often appreciated this about her. During an AMA on Instagram, Ranveer was once asked if he likes the food that Deepika cooks. “Love it. She's an amazing cook! My multi-talented baby,” he said. Interviews have also revealed that Deepika loves South Indian food and that rasam-rice is her favourite dish. Apart from this, the actress also likes khichdi with pickle and idli with sambar. 

Considering how much Deepika enjoys her food, we find it inspiring that she manages to balance her passion for it with staying fit. She has set a new standard for women that says there’s nothing shameful about eating what you like. It’s an important thought to consider, especially since it comes from one of the most influential women in the world.
