Deepika takes a break.
Deepika takes a break.

She is being lauded for her portrayal of the radical Veronica in Cocktail, and in the news every other day for her films, including Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwaani- opposite ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, but Deepika Padukone's health is taking a toll as she's on her toes all the time.

“On Thursday, Deepika was shooting for a song with Ranbir Kapoor in Mehboob Studios. She had been feeling very low and weak since the past couple of days. She underwent a check-up and was advised to take complete rest for the next five days at least,” says a close friend of the actress. Though she's at the top of her game, the athletic girl knows that to maintain status quo, she'll need her bit of rest as well.

The actress has taken a break from her hectic schedule and has headed to Bangalore, to be with her parents, who are worried for their daughter too. Confirms Dippy's spokesperson, “It was a case of sheer exhaustion. Doctors advised Deepika to take rest. She has gone to Bangalore to be with her mum and dad.”

The actress's friend adds, “Her shoot of Karan Johar's Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani directed by Ayan Mukerji was taking at least 11-12 hours every day. Add to this her other meetings, which involved post-release promotions of Cocktail and meetings with filmmakers over fresh offers.”

Karan and Ayan have paused the shoots for a bit, till she's okay to resume her schedule. We only hope that Dippy's back on top of her game post-hiatus!
