It’s wedding season in Bollywood. After dating nearly for six years, Deepika Padukone married her actor-boyfriend, Ranveer Singh in a lavish Italian wedding on November 14. The couple had a traditional Konkani wedding, which will be followed by a Sindhi wedding on November 15. Not just DeepVeer, there’s another power-couple whose wedding has piqued Bolly fans’ interests. It’s none other than Ranveer-Deepika’s Bajirao Mastani co-star, Priyanka Chopra and her fiancé Nick Jonas'. After a whirlwind romance, Priyanka and Nick are all set to have a royal wedding at the Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur. Apart from starting the married chapter of their lives with their respective partners around the same time, Deepika and Priyanka also had something else in common. These two also began their Hollywood journeys together with xXx: Return of Xander Cage and Baywatch in 2017. Deepika Padukone Weds Ranveer Singh: 11 Songs That Perfectly Describe Fans' Mental Condition Waiting For The Wedding Pictures!

Deepika and Priyanka have been on cordial terms and have always spoken warmly of each other. When the two appeared together for an episode of Koffee With Karan in 2014, their camaraderie was evident for all to see. Two of a kind, the actresses’ choices in their personal and professional lives also shadowed each other’s, especially with their Hollywood debut. While their relationships followed the same trajectory of success, the same cannot be said about their Hollywood venture. Let’s see how each of them fared! Deepika Padukone – Ranveer Singh Wedding Pictures Out! Here’s the First Glimpse of the Bride and the Groom From Lake Como in Italy.

Staring to the newly-wed actress, Deepika Padukone. After saying no to lucrative offers from Hollywood, the dimpled-beauty finally agreed to do D.J. Caruso’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage, the film starring Vin Diesel in the lead. Unlike stereotypical roles done by Indian stars in the past, Deepika played the role of Serena Unger, a role at par with Diesel’s Xander Cage! In 2017 action film, the 32-year-old was a part of a group of mercenaries and oh boy, she kicked some good ass.

Deepika’s character was a well-written and had depth (a rarity for non-white stars who are mostly cast for ‘exotic’ factor). However, the Indian actress changed these conventional rules with her Hollywood debut. Despite, Serena and Xander falling for each other, Deepika was not in the movie solely as Vin Diesel’s ‘love interest,’ another stereotype female stars are battling in general worldwide. But not Deepika Padukone! Director Caruso has confirmed on the sequel of xXx: Return of Xander Cage on Twitter and that all of the major cast will be back for the fourth instalment of the xXx franchise. We are waiting to see more of Deepika aka Serena Unger’s badassery!

Coming to Priyanka Chopra, the lady who started it all. Of course, we have Irrfan Khan who has a fantastic Hollywood filmography with meaty roles. But the 36-year-old truly defined ‘sky is the limit’ when she became the first South Asian to headline an American network drama series with ABC’s Quantico. After having three successful seasons, which earned her numerous awards including prestigious People's Choice Award in ‘Favorite Actress in a New TV Series’ category, Priyanka headed off to make her Hollywood debut.

If Deepika made her big debut with an action film, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Priyanka chose a crime action comedy, Baywatch with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the lead. The Indian star actress who has done close to 50 Bollywood movies opted to play a negative character of Victoria Leeds, a shrewd and scheming Colombian businesswoman. While, the focus remained on Baywatch group, Priyanka did grab a lot of eyeballs with her compelling presence. Post Baywatch, Priyanka has two more Hollywood movies - A Kid Like Jake released in 2018 and Isn't It Romantic? in 2019  to her credit.

Deeps and PeeCee are frontrunners when speaking of true-blue Indian superstars who have made a mark in the West. While Hollywood movies may not be the yardstick to measure an Indian celeb’s popularity internationally, it's is still a large achievement to headline their films, television series and award shows. And they have made a case for Indian but also for Asian actors and actresses for lead roles devoid, far from stereotypical portrayals. We wish both the girls achieve a lot of ground-breaking professional successes. And as of now, we congratulate them over their ‘happily ever after’ moments.
