Deepika was a successful airhostess for 3 years before the glamour industry beckoned. She acted in a couple of shows before landing the lead role as Simar in Sasural Simar Ka. Many people aspire to to leave their careers and become actors, but Deepika is one of the few who has made it big.
2.She fits the role of Simar to the T
We've been watching Sasural Simar Ka for more than a year now, and the lines between Deepika and Simar are starting to blur. Deepika is perfect for the role of Simar, and emotes perfectly as the caring sister, loving wife and dutiful bahu. Her tears are the cause of our collective eyes tearing up, and her smile, though rare, is cause enough for celebration.
3. She has a great relationship with Avika Gor
On screen, Simar and Roli are the perfect sisters. But off screen too, she is great friends with Avika Gor, who plays Roli on screen. In an industry where parallel leads and main leads are known for the bad blood between them, the more than cordial relationship between Simar and Roli is a welcome change.
4. She is a delight on the sets
On the sets of Sasural Simar Ka, Deepika is not just friends with Avika, but the rest of the cast and crew as well. She is great friends with Shoaib Ibrahim, who plays Prem and Abhishek Sharma (Sankalp). Shoaib calls Deepika 'Annapurna' as she can always be found with some or the other thing to eat.This trio can be seen hanging out and having fun on the sets together, sharing their lunches with each other. We love how she has gone beyond professional ties to make personal bonds.
5.Deepika is like Simar in real life
Simar is a simple, sorted girl who loves her family. And Deepika, by her own admission, is no different. Deepika is also very close to her family, and has loving sisters in real life too. And just like Simar, Deepika loves to dance. No wonder she does such a good job of playing Simar!
