Did you know that Deepika Padukone studied Jiu-Jitsu?

Considering Deepika Padukone's badminton career at the national level and her propensity for sports, her inclusion on this list shouldn't come as a surprise.

In addition to being one of Bollywood's highest-paid performers, Padukone studied Jiu Jitsu for her dual role in the 2009 action comedy Chandni Chowk To China. She reportedly received assistance from her co-star Akshay Kumar, who has Muay Thai training.

Interestingly, she is not the only Bollywood star that has trained in combat sports. Tiger Shroff, who is also the founder of Matrix Fight Night (MFN) which is one of the premier MMA promotions in the country, is also an avid martial artist.

Vidyut Jammwal, Rajkummar Rao and Shilpa Shetty are some other names that have tried their hand at combat sports.

Deepika Padukone is one of the highest-paid actresses in India and is considered one of the country's most popular and attractive celebrities. Padukone has received several awards, including three Filmfare Awards, and has established herself as one of the leading actresses of Indian cinema.

She made her acting debut in 2006 with the Kannada film Aishwarya and later appeared in successful Hindi films such as Om Shanti Om, Cocktail, and Bajirao Mastani.

Her next film, Pathaan, will feature her alongside Shah Rukh Khan and is planned for release in January 2023. The film will see Shah Rukh Khan playing a RAW agent and alongside Deepika, will also have John Abraham.
