Mother Tongue

She is fluent in English, Hindi, Kannada, and mother tongue Konkani[1].

Devanagari script for Konkani

Deepika Padukone is a Chitrapur Saraswat which is a community of Konkani speaking Brahmins. They adhere to the Chitrapur Math in Shirali, Uttar Kanara district. All of the Math's publications use the devanagari script for Konkani. The Chitrapur Math's Swamiji's pravachans and ashirvachans are also written in Konkani using the Devanagari script. As a Chitrapur Saraswat myself, I can vouch for the fact that we do not use Kannada script to write Konkani. While it is true that other Konkani speakers around Mangalore and the Udipi district write Konkani in the Kannda script, the Chitrapur Saraswat community does not. Please read our Swamiji's Ashirvachans on the site. It is written in Konkani using the Devanagari script. --Bhanap1708 (talk) 18:13, 6 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is Deepika an Indian Dane?

Need references for Deepika's nationality as a Dane.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 12:28, 29 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Looking at the category I see that it doesn't claim to be about nationality, but in any case she doesn't fit it. Apparently it is for it is for Indian people living in Denmark or People of Indian Origin in Denmark. Deepak doesn't live in Denmark. I think it was a case of someone being over enthusiastic with categorization. -- SiobhanHansa 14:34, 29 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Personal life section

This was removed as being undue weight and out of step with our biographies of living people policy. Not for "no apparent reason" as was claimed when it was restored. The idea from that edit summary that "as an encyclopedia we have to mention who she was dating" absolutely astounds me. What encyclopedias have you been reading? This does not appear to be a long established relationship and the section is encouraging BLP violations all the time. I would add WP:RECENT and WP:NOT#NEWS to reasons against including it. There are plenty of sites people can go to if they want the latest gossip. Is it necessary for us to go running after trivia too? -- SiobhanHansa 12:53, 15 March 2008 (UTC) Deepika Pradukone broke up with Ranbir Kapoor on October 2009 not Novemeber 2009.Reply[reply]

World's sexiest woman

This claim: She is also known to be the most Sexiest and the most Beautiful Actress alive. uses a Times of India source. The wording isn't clear on who exactly has declared her the sexiest Woman. The source states she's on the Maxim Hot 100 but the Maxim Hot 100 that I know of [2] doesn't mention her. Does anyone have a better source for this claim so we can include it accurately in the article? -- SiobhanHansa 18:28, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Some peoples are mistaken saying she is from mangalore, but its not true.

Deepika's father is from Padukone village in Kundapura Taluk of Udupi District

[3] please read the second paragraph Chandanmm (talk) 03:55, 26 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Actually by Mangalore, people mean the Mangalore district or South Canara district (before 1997). And Kundapura Taluk of Udupi District is in South Canara. Hence the confusion. KensplanetTalkContributions 03:46, 26 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deepika Padukone is an ethnic Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin who are a Konkani speaking community. They had settled in coastal villages of Karnataka after they migrated from Goa in the early 16th century. Most (if not all) Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmins bear surnames that can traced to a village in coastal Karnataka. The reason CSB's have surnames like these is because most of their forefathers worked as administrators in various villages in coastal Karnataka back in the 18th century. The ruling King in those days declared that all CSB's need to bear last names that reflect the village they administer. That's how 99% of CSB last names are names of villages found in coastal Karnataka. Now, this does not mean that Deepika hails from Padukone village in Karnataka because her last name is Padukone. What it means is that one of her ancestors held an administrative position under the royal court and was assigned for duty in the Padukone village. It is not uncommon to find Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmins bearing a surname that points to village XYZ, but having nothing to do with that village in terms of a house or lineage. My very own surname points to a certain village in the Udipi district of Karnataka, but my forefathers claim lineage from a whole different village. --Bhanap1708 (talk) 20:12, 5 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pronounication of Padukone

Padukone is wrongly pronounced.its पडूकोने not पादुकोण.

--Neal007 (talk) 01:23, 14 June 2009 (UTC) She has appeared in the new version of Mile Sur Mera Tumhara —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:37, 26 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ Neal007 - The 'e' in Padukone is silent. The correct pronunciation of Padukone is पडुकोण ( IPA pəɖʊkoːɳ] ). Deepika Padukone is an ethnic Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin (CSB), who are Konkani-speaking people settled on the coastal belt of Karnataka. 'Padukone' is pronounced as पडुकोण ( IPA pəɖʊkoːɳ] ) in Konkani (specifically the Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin dialect of Konkani). The actual village of Padukone may be pronounced as 'padu-ko-nay' today, but CSB's with the Padukone surname pronounce it as 'padu-cone'. The way CSB's pronounce it today most accurately reflects the pronunciation that was in use 250 years ago. Deepika's surname indicates that one of her forefathers worked as an administrator of the Padukone village or that they were at one time settled in that village. It doesn't necessarily mean that her family hails from the Padukone village. Deepika herself confirms that the 'e' in Padukone is silent. Please see this link The very first line confirms this. --Bhanap1708 (talk) 20:12, 5 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I vouch for Bhanap1708 's correctness in this regard being the correct pronunciation of this surname in the Chitrapur Saraswat community to which Deepika belongs. AshLin (talk) 06:51, 6 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I amended the Kannada script a few days ago to reflect the correct pronunciation (padu-cone as opposed to padu-ko-nay). Since my knowledge of the Kannada script is negligible, native Kannada speakers are encouraged to double check. --Bhanap1708 (talk) 19:05, 9 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Irrespective of what her village's name is, the important thing is the way in which people commonly use it (WP:COMMONNAME) and the way in which the subject herself pronounces it. As I saw, an article mentions that the 'e' is silent in 'Padukone' (the article, which, isn't very reliable by the way). Wikipedia isn't very clear on this as a policy, so, for now, I'll leave this status quo. But, to be very very clear, it does not matter whatsoever whether she is a Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin or not as far as pronunciation of the name is concerned. MikeLynch (talk) 15:23, 18 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And, could someone please change the name in Kannada script, which currently reads 'Padukona'. Thanks. MikeLynch (talk) 15:23, 18 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As far as WP:NAME is concerned, it does not appear to have jurisdiction on pronunciation. AshLin (talk) 17:36, 18 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
MikeLynch - Feel free to correct the Kannada script to reflect Padukone (e silent). My knowledge of the Kannada script is NIL, so I assumed that removing the 'e' vowel from the script would do it. Seems like that wasn't right either. As far as the correct pronunciation is concerned, the link provided may be a blog post, but it seems to be a genuine media blog where the blog operator is involved with interviewing Bollywood personalities( Besides, there is no other place (that I know of) where Deepika Padukone or her father clarify how the surname is actually pronounced. Also, as rightly pointed out by AshLin, WP::COMMONNAME does not appear to apply to pronunciation. It applies to cases like Dilip Kumar / Yusuf Khan. --Bhanap1708 (talk) 22:16, 18 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I guess i'm having a problem with Google Transliterate, so I can't currently correct it. Anyway, yes, you are right about WP:COMMONNAME, but I don't think a blog post is admissible as a source, because it is self-published. (See WP:SPS). Yes, this name pronunciation may be difficult to verify, but for the record, it does not matter whatsoever what lineage she is from or whatever. MikeLynch (talk) 05:47, 19 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For very, very small communities of 200,000 strength or so? Of course, every famous name matters to their identity and miniscule footprint. :-) AshLin (talk) 07:16, 19 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
MikeLynch - You're absolutely right about self published sources. Anyway... I do think lineage matters when random individuals make various claims about how 'Padukone' should be pronounced. Being a Chitrapur Saraswat myself, I find it horrid that someone would tweak the pronunciation of a person from my close-knit community (a community so very small in numbers, but yet large in terms of contribution to cinema) Either way, I found a video of Prakash Padukone introducing himself. See how he pronounces his surname here. Also found a video of Deepika Padukone introducing herself... watch how she pronounces her surname here. After watching this, I sincerely hope the whole debate about pronunciation comes to rest.. and that the media will finally learn how to pronounce Deepika's surname correctly (with the 'e' silent).--Bhanap1708 (talk) 07:45, 19 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
AshLin - We're a community of less than 20 thousand ;) --Bhanap1708 (talk) 07:45, 19 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
MikeLynch - I added a virama (it's called a 'virama' in devanagari, not sure what it is called in Kannada) to the Kannada script so that the default vowel sound of the 'n' consonant in 'Padukone' is suppressed. You might wanna check it for accuracy. Google Transliterate is useless. I had to look up a Kannada script tutorial to get it ;) --Bhanap1708 (talk) 08:36, 19 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hehe, yeah I know how it feels when a name is improperly pronounced. Personally, I believe that we should maintain a status quo on this. But again, very sorry to say that Youtube videos are not usually accepted as references. However, the video does prove the name correction, and I agree that it should be Padukone without the 'e' pronounced. So I guess we should just leave it at that :) MikeLynch (talk) 12:52, 19 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I never said YouTube videos are to be used as references. You don't see a citation on the article's pronunciation section linking to YouTube videos, do you? ;-) I don't think a matter as trivial as pronunciation (which is unfortunately being made out to be an issue of conflicting views) is a topic of scholarly debate that demands a citation. No one is going to come up with an official press release clarifying the pronunciation ;-) But I'm sure there is no better 'reference' other than the subject themselves pronouncing their name. --Bhanap1708 (talk) 15:29, 19 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I really feel that Padukone is pronounced the way sreerajarasa has changed it on this article. Cheers! But there are some morons who say they have reached some concensus and decided that Padukone is pronounced as ಪಡುಕೊಣ್. This bhanap17 claims that just because Deepika said in a press conference that Padukone is pronounced as ಪಡುಕೊಣ್ and not ಪಡುಕೊಣೆ, it should be mentioned as ಪಡುಕೊಣ್ in the article. I know it is pronounced as ಪಡುಕೊಣೆ and these people are shying away from the actual facts. --Gamblatt (talk) 16:53, 11 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Okay this is going in the wrong direction. Until we see some Reliable evidence that the name is pronounced either way, I think this article should be status quo. Gamblatt, I request you not to use objectionable language. I must say that neither of the parties have any verifiable sources to support their arguments. I also have a suggestion: Instead of just squabbling, why don't we include both pronunciations until someone finds a source reliable enough? Please post comments here. Regards. MikeLynch (talk) 17:09, 11 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, after having read all the comments, I seriously fail to understand the squabble. Since I am Konkani, I can attest to the fact that ಪಡುಕೊಣ್/पडुकोण is the correct pronunciation. However, my claim is based on my own 'insider' knowledge, which means it has no justification to Wikipedia. On a similar note, I'd like to remind the protagonists of ಪಡುಕೊಣೆ/पडुकोणे that their claim is based on their own 'insider' knowledge which too has no place on Wikipedia. Wikipedia relies on reliable evidence and not any random individual's claim to be the guardian of 'truth'. I happened to watch those video links posted above and I do think they suffice to clear up the matter. Prakash and Deepika would obviously know how to pronounce their last name perfectly (as opposed to any of us). The media pronounces Padukone in a variety of ways; doesn't mean we entertain all those myriad incorrect pronunciations. I don't agree with Mike's suggestion at all. Putting both pronunciations gives the reader WRONG information that either pronunciation is acceptable. At least the ಪಡುಕೊಣ್/पडुकोण protagonists have videos to rely on. What does the ಪಡುಕೊಣೆ/पडुकोणे camp have? Nothing. All they have is a claim to 'know the truth'. So, I fail to see the justification behind Mike's recommendation. If the squabble gets out of hand, you might be better off not having any transliteration/pronunciation at all.

Relevance of scripts

I've been wondering about the relevance of scripts on BLPs. The idea is to include a transliterated version of a script which is the native language of an industry because of which the subject is notable. In the case of Deepika, it is the Hindi film industry. Technically, the transliterated script and language should be Hindi. Why are we including Konkani and Kannada? Thoughts would be welcome. Signed | Aoghac2z | 23:07, 7 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Since this is the English Wikipedia, ideally we should never use non-Roman scripts here in this Wiki. However, there are exceptions. Well, I think the native script of a person is is included because the Roman Script alone is insufficent for pronouncing the name. In many cases, the way people pronounce the name in the Roman script is a lot different from the actual name how it is pronounced. Romanization is never cent percent accurate, but is very close to the orginal pronounciation. दीपिका पडुकोण is 100% accurate, but Deepika Padukone may not be and will definitely vary from how people to people pronounce it. That's the reason to maintain the accuracy of the article and pronounciation, native scripts are always used. Xavier449 (talk) 14:58, 8 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We also have several Konkani Roman Catholic articles like George Fernandes, Freida Pinto, and Genelia D'Souza. But we will never use Devanagari or Kannada script there. Those names are English and surnames Portuguese. Only and only Roman script can be used to represent the names there. No Indian script can be used to represent them as that may lead to inaccuracy. Hope that makes sense. Xavier449 (talk) 15:02, 8 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think that was User:Aoghac2z's point. I think the point was that Deepika is active in the Hindi Film Industry, and hence, the Hindi transliteration should be provided. That is a nice point actually. Will comment on it after I look through other articles. TheMikeWassup doc? 15:08, 8 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for clarifying that point for me, Mike. Well, I've come across several BLPs where the language of notability is mentioned. One such example is Rajnikanth who is Marathi by ethnicity. His page has a mention of the Tamil script alone, which makes sense because it is the Tamil language (and the Tamil film industry) because of which he is notable. Take other examples :
* Sonam Kapoor - Born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, but it doesn't have a Marathi transliteration. Has only Hindi.
* Abhishek Bachchan - Born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, but it doesn't have a Marathi transliteration. Has only Hindi.
The idea is not to inundate the first line with multiple scripts and transliterations, but to simply include ONE (could be more than one in rare cases) script that has made the person in question NOTABLE. Signed | Aoghac2z | 22:10, 8 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I get the point. I think it has to be changed. But then, you can't give examples of Sonam Kapoor and Amitabh, as they are from North India. Anyway, I feel it has to be changed. TheMikeWassup doc? 09:24, 9 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Right! Their ethnic and ancestral origins may be from North India, but they're associated with Mumbai in terms of domicile, identity and birth. Anyway, changing it on the article per consensus. Signed | Aoghac2z | 19:28, 14 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Logically if a script has to be used; then the transliteration must be in Konkani. She is a Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin after all. So, Konkani is her native language. The Hindi transliteration shouldn't be used, because even though she is mostly associated with Bollywood, her mother tongue isn't Hindi. The Rajnikanth article might currently hold GA status, but let's not make that the reference for what example must be followed in every BLP article of an actor. Joyson Noel Holla at me! 20:12, 4 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Logically speaking, mother tongue scripts must be used. Rajinikanth's article has a Tamil script as it's a screen name (Rajinikanth is not his real name) given by a Tamil director to act in Tamil movies, although a Marathi (His mother tongue) transliteration of his original name is also there in te article.

Mentioning Caste

Dear Editors!
There has been a discussion on India Portal related to mentioning of caste of subjects. The point is that mentioning caste of people, who have nothing to do with their caste, is found to be unnecessary by few editors. Hence the caste of the subject person needs to be deleted from the biography. I am not deleting the caste as of now but am only posting this here so that the regular editors of this article are well aware of it beforehand and no edit-wars take place. For details of discussion held on the portal please refer Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics#Mentioning_caste_of_Individuals. Your views if any are welcome there or even here.
And.... as the reasons of exclusion of caste pointed out were "irrelavant to notability of subject person", "privacy of the subject person", "inclusion of caste is like branding individuals", etc. other information included in the article which also fall under these cases will also be removed after discussions. Examples of it included religion, non-notable spouse's and children's and parents' information, previous occupation, lived in places, non-notability related educational qualification, etc.

Just wondering...the heading for this section doesn't seem right to me. She had only one success out of 7 films during 2010-11 (Housefull, which was a critical failure), yet the heading is "Initial success, 2010-11". Wouldn't it be more appropriate if it were "Initial success and setbacks, 2010-11" or something along those lines?? AB01 (talk) 15:31, 4 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reviewer: Dr. Blofeld (talk · contribs) 10:00, 4 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Successful is repeated quite a few rimes, perhaps reword one or too, especially "hugely successful ".

Early life

By 2006 Padukone had established a successful career as a model with a hugely popular print campaign. Hugely again I don't like seeing, maybe "by 2006 Padukone had established a career as a model after a highly successful print campaign?

Acting career
  • "The film was hugely publicised" -again..
  • "Om Shanti Om was a hugely popular release," ditto
  • "Love Aaj Kal proved the -" proved to be the
  • "Padukone started 2011 with the hugely hyped item " ditto. = overly hyped
  • "The pairing of Padukone with Kapoor (her ex-boyfriend) led to a huge hype surrounding the film's release" -ditto
  • Padukone's next film role was opposite Shahrukh Khan in Rohit Shetty's action comedy film Chennai Express as Meenalochini Azhagu Sundaram, -when was this?
  • "She visited the Indian jawan troops in Jammu, for an Independence Day special episode of NDTV's reality show Jai Jawaan.[108] In 2010 she took part in the opening ceremony of the third season of the Indian Premier League at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.[109] Three years later, she performed alongside Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Pitbull for the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League.[110] In early 2013 she performed at the 2013 Zee Cine awards[111] and later that year performed in Macao for the 14th IIFA Awards.[11" A lot of repetition of "she", replace some with Padukone.
  • "In 2012 it was reported that Padukone had signed on for an endorsement deal worth INR60 million (US$950,000), " -who was this deal with?
Thanks Dr. Blofeld. All the points have been addressed. :) --smarojit HD 10:09, 7 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you. :) --smarojit HD 18:35, 7 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Not sure that the photo of her in the media section is a flattering one although granted it is related to her endorsements. I thought the previous photograph looked nicer. Perhaps find one which is an endorsement but which she looks nice in too? How about File:Deepika-padukone-at-the-launch-of-tanishq-iva-collection.jpg? I suppose the Wrigley photo is OK, but I don't think it is one of her more attractive photos with her hair worn down.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:14, 27 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't mind either of them. The Wringley's one is fine too. --smarojit HD 14:25, 27 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That one looks good too, though I don't think she officially endorsed Tanishq- I think it was just for Race 2 promotions.. AB01 (talk) 14:26, 27 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I guess you could change it if that ^^ doesn't matter AB01 (talk) 14:27, 27 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We could use both, and move the Wrigley photo down to the bottom right where her endorsements are mentioned? I'd rather the previous photo on the top left though and then put the Wrigley photo on the bottom right. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:30, 27 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, that sounds better :) AB01 (talk) 14:32, 27 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In the media

I reckon we should add Maybelline as one of the brands she endorse(s/d), since this was one of her most well known brands. AB01 (talk) 12:05, 29 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Missing information?

(edit conflict) According to an interview she is trained in Bharathanatyam (source 2: [5]) and also jazz ballet (source 2) . Also, another article by The Times of India states she's learned Kathak (source 2: [6]). Is it worth mentioning in the article? Also, what happened to the infobox? It's missing!? ごだい (会話) 17:01, 11 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nothing that the lead doesn't provide anyway see Wikipedia:Disinfoboxes.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:31, 28 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's untrue. An infobox provides a quick overview in a predictable position of key facts that a reader can access at a glance. It also provides both microformats and structured data that facilitates third party reuse of our content. There's plenty that the lead does not provide. --RexxS (talk) 20:33, 28 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
