Actor Deepika Padukone is part of a campaign by the National Commission for Women called Men for Women. In a video, shared by their official handle, the actor spoke about how her father badminton ace Prakash Padukone and, now her husband, actor Ranveer Singh, have supported her immensely, adding that the campaign for gender equality needs the support of men.

Deepika says in a video, “I have been extremely fortunate to have received a lot of love from my father, and now, husband. Throughout my life, and in various aspects of my life. So let us not forget that men play an equally important role in empowering women.”

Deepika has often acknowledged the support her father has had in her upbringing.

Wishing her dad on his 65th birthday last year, Deepika wrote a sweet note and shared a childhood picture. A young Deepika can be seen smiling as she looks at the camera while siting in her dad’s lap in the pic. She wrote alongside the image, “To the greatest off-screen hero I could have ever had! Thank You for showing us that being a true champion is not only about one’s professional achievements, but also about being a good human being!Happy 65th Birthday, Pappa ! We love you! #pappa #padukone.”

Deepika and Ranveer got married in Italy in November 2018. The ceremony was followed by receptions in Bengaluru and Mumbai. Ranveer wrote a heartfelt note for Deepika, just months after their wedding. He wrote on her birthday in 2019, “Deepika is the most amazing person I’ve met in my life. And I’m not just saying this because she’s my wife. I find it particularly challenging to articulate all my feelings about her, and even though I find language to be a limiting means to express myself, I shall try. Deepika nurtures a universe within herself: of love, compassion, kindness, intelligence, beauty, grace and empathy. These qualities make her a true and authentic artiste- she’s one of the finest actors in the world.”

He added, “Her discipline and commitment is unparalleled. Her path-breaking achievements have changed the game time and again. A woman so righteous and full of virtue, that she commands respect. I sometimes stop and admire her, aware that she is a special soul, born for greatness. She’s born to positively impact lives through the shining beacon of her virtuous being.”
