Bollywood's gorgeous diva, Deepika Padukone who is currently flying high over the success her last project Padmaavat, gets honoured this International Women's Day. This day is celebrated across the globe with great enthusiasm and zeal, to respect and appreciate the strong women which makes Deepika take the number 33 spot. 

Padmaavat has minted a total of Rs. 288.43 crores till now

The list honours Deepika for her outstanding performances in Bollywood over the years and emerging through several controversies prior to the release of Padmaavat gracefully. Being overwhelmed an excited Deepika took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, "Honoured & humbled joining these amazing achievers! Thank You @Variety."

There are a number of other celebrities from the entertainment industry who were featured in the list including Salma Hayek, Emma Watson, Guneet Monga, Gal Gadot, and J K Rowling.

"The star of the recent Bollywood blockbuster "Padmaavat" faced death threats and verbal abuse from various fringe groups with poise and elan. Deepika Padukone, whose father, Prakash, was a star badminton player, used to participate in the sport before becoming a model. She is now one of the highest-paid Indian actresses and has made the leap from Bollywood movies such as Om Shanti Omand Chennai Express to Hollywood titles including xXx: Return of Xander Cage last year. She is also philanthropically active, starting her own Live Laugh Love Foundation, which focuses on mental illness," Deepika's bio on variety.com reads.

Prior to the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat, the Rajpur Karni Sena protested against the movie across the nation. They accused Bhansali of distorting historical facts. However, after a lot of fracas over its controversial story line, Padmaavat finally hit the theatres on January 25, 2018. The movie also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in pivotal roles.

Talking about another Bollywood celebrity in the Variety list, Guneet Monga is one of the well-known female producers in India and had produced critically acclaimed movies like The Lunchbox and The Ashram.
