Deepika Padukone is clearly riding high on success. After her Hollywood debut, she is back with Bhansali's epic Padmavati, that promises to be another blockbuster. 

While at the launch of Hema Malini's biography Hema Malini: Beyond the Dream Girl, Deepika Padukone got candid about her own life and struggles, and how lonely it gets at the top.

As reported by PTI, the usually tight-lipped actor spoke her heart out during the media interaction.

She talked about the struggles of keeping a romantic relationship, for someone in her position. How relationships often suffer, when you are finding your own path and creating a name for yourself. 

How fame has changed her equation with friends and relatives.

 How people disconnected because she was now 'famous.'

And then finally she spoke about how she has to live with being a '12th pass' and how it initially irked her parents. 

Deepika Padukone is today, one of the highest paid actors in Bollywood. Last year, she made her Hollywood debut alongside Vin Diesel in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage

And if the trailer of her latest film is any indication, the actor is going nowhere from the dizzying heights of success.
