Deepika parties with Novak Djokovic in LA

Los Angeles (PTI): Indian actress Deepika Padukone was spotted exiting from a club here along with tennis star Novak Djokovic.

The 30-year-old daughter of Badminton player Prakash Padukone, who is shooting her debut Hollywood outing “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” in LA for quite sometime, met the tennis ace in the dark evening hours of March 8.

British tabloid The Daily Mail, which broke the story, however, called her a “female companion” of the tennis star.

The online site faced flak from fans for not doing their homework and failing to recognise the popular Indian star.

Deepika, who is a self-confessed fan of Djokovic’s staunch competitor Rafael Nadal, had earlier met Jelena Ristic, wife of defending champion Novak Djokovic on July 10 last year when the Serbian top seed reached his fourth Wimbledon final.

  1. Deepika Padukone is seen exiting a Club with Novak Djokovik and the Daily Mail just reports this news item by saying that he was accompanied by a female companion. In short, outside Hindi film world, many people in the world do not know about them. However, if it was a Hollywood or English actress, the Daily Mail would have given detailed coverage.

    Leaving aside the few cricketing playing countries, if one were to ask who is Virat Kohli in Argentina, I wonder if ppeope would know who he is.
