As the year comes to an end, and a new year is just around the corner, the month of January for the film industry is devoted primarily to all kinds of award functions, as it is the barometer of the success that the fraternity has attained during the past year, and recognition of the same at the public fora. But 2014 could indeed be an interesting year for cinema with reference to the award function as Deepika Padukone is at the cusp of breaking the record in award functions held by Meena Kumari and if it happens this feat would be repeated after more than 60 years.
As a matter of fact it would not be repeat of the feat; rather Deepika could become the star who would have overhauled the record held by Meena Kumari for more than 60 years. Meena Kumari in the year 1962 became the first actor who was nominated for three films MAIN CHUP RAHUNGI, AARTI and SAHIB BIBI AUR GHULAM, eventually she went on to sweep all the awards for SAHIB BIBI AUR GHULAM.
For Deepika Padukone there are four super successful films that would be vying against each other to facilitate her to have a shot at the best female actor award and the films include, CHENNAI EXPRESS, COCKTAIL, GOSLIYON KI RASSLEELA RAM-LEELA and YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI. Each of the four roles are as different as chalk and cheese and the jury indeed is going to have the tough time in choosing the film to confer the award on Deepika.
All these four roles are celebration of the independent mind that characterizes the woman of the present times, even though she might have been living in a rural landscape as in CHENNAI EXPRESS, in a megapolis like London as in COCKTAIL, in a rustic surrounding like in RAM- LEELA or as student trying to balance career and love as in YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI.
One thing is for sure, in 2014 Deepika Padukone is going to sweep all the awards as all the four roles that she has enacted have given her ample scope to perform and underline the fact that she is here for a long haul and is going to redefine the contours of cinema as also the roles that are written for female actors in the Hindi film industry.
