Deepika Padukone as Tissot - Swiss Watch Maker's Brand Ambassador
Deepika Padukone's partnership with Tissot began in December 2007, shortly after the worldwide release of the major Bollywood film "Om Shanti Om", in which she had an important role. Both ventures have been bathed in success. "Om Shanti Om" was a hit with audiences around the world and now ranks as the second highest grossing Hindi movie ever.. Deepika's performance brought her a string of awards, including the Filmfare Award for the best female debut, the Star Screen Award for the most promising newcomer and the IIFA Award for the best female debutante. Since then her film career has taken off and her latest filmography features "Bachna Ae Haseeno" (2008), "Kartik Calling Kartik" (2009), "Love Aaj Kal" (2009)and "Chandni Chowk to China" (2009).
Her Tissot ambassadorship has also reaped many rewards and the diversity of the collection, rooted in its reliable Swiss heritage, has proved to be just the ticket for her multi-faceted lifestyle. She loves being able to find just the right watch for the occasion and mood, every time. Deepika loves the Tissot T-Touch models, although since diamonds are traditionally a girl's best friend, she admits to having a real soft-spot for the Tissot Classic Prince Diamonds and the Generosi-T. Deepika reflects on the similarities between her personality and the Tissot brand, "We are both adventurous, sophisticated and classy, yet very approachable."
Daughter of a former badminton world champion, Deepika at one stage looked set to follow in her father's footsteps. But then a passion for modelling stole the show. Deepika is still keen to point out that sport remains a vital ingredient for keeping a balance between her professional and private lives, and yoga and swimming have joined her established repertoire of sports disciplines. When asked for her personal perspective on what success is made of, Deepika has a clear response - "To love and enjoy everything you do. And to be happy with the smaller things in life."
