Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone and Ola's co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal have made it to Time's list of 2018's 100 most influential people. In 2016, Priyanka Chopra bagged a place in Time magazine's 100 most influential people's list. From just hailing from the world of modelling to becoming the top female actor in the Hindi film industry and even landing with an worldwide project like "XxX: The Return of Xander Cage", Deepika has come a long way.
About Padukone, her co-star Diesel wrote, "As soon as she entered the room, there was a synchronicity, a synergy, a chemistry-it promised great things to come". After having given Bollywood many of its firsts with the release of Padmaavat this year, Deepika has also earned her name in the 100 Most Influential People in the World.
Mumbai: Virat Kohli is arguably one of the best batsman in the world right now across all formats.
"When Deepika Padukone came in to read for one of the Fast and the Furious films, I knew instantly I was in the presence of someone very special".
"Anyone could talk about how handsome she is, and anyone could tell you about her unmatched comedic timing".
While the marriage rumors of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are still afloat in the air, new revelations have been unearthed to the surface.
"For those who meet Bhavish Aggarwal for the first time, his polite, soft-spoken demeanor is impossible to forget. She's not just here to represent India; she's here to represent the world". "She's an actor's actor, dedicated to the craft", Diesel wrote.
Nadella, meanwhile, was profiled by Walter Isaacson, a professor of history at Tulane University and a former managing editor of TIME.
