New Delhi, January 5: Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone has turned 30 today completing 10 years in Bollywood film industry. One of the most paid actresses of the world, she is reaching new milestones every day.

Here are some powerful quotes by the "Bajirao Mastani" actress which proves she is not just a pretty face but a talented and hard-working woman who can identify with her soul.
"I have been through the grind where I've come home and there's no dinner. I've forgotten to order it and I've slept on an empty stomach. I can proudly say that I own my home today and I've worked bloody hard for it."
"It's good to be slightly ambitious, but I believe one shouldn't be too calculative. It's good to be on the edge, but I have never followed my mind. I have always followed my heart. And it has yielded the right results."
"I'm someone who needs to be nurtured. I need my man to be mine."
"I don't think I am a star; I consider myself like any other girl who is of my age. Others may be working in the office and doing different jobs. Similarly, I don't think I am doing something different... I am also working."
"Yes! I am a woman. I have breasts and a cleavage! You got a problem!!??"
"Yes, love is blind. I can say it from my personal experience."
"I feel ups and downs are a part of one's career, and this totally depends on how you take it. You can either be knocked down by the negative things, or you can learn from it."
"Not everyone ends up taking their life but there's a lot of people who are fighting with themselves every morning."
"When you look at a person, any person, everyone has a story. Everyone has gone through something that has changed their life. Anxiety, depression and panic attacks are not signs of weakness. They are signs of trying to remain strong for way too long."
"Correct me if I am wrong, but I personally feel that the Indian body type is not cut out to be size zero. I am not size zero and I don't believe in that either."
