Deepika Padukone made her debut in Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om in 2007. Due to her acting skills, she became popular in no time.

Unknown to some, Deepika is currently working on her upcoming film Chhapaak. The movie is based on the life of an acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The movie is scheduled for a January 2020 release. Apart from all her spectacular performances, Deepika has also delivered extremely poor performances. Let’s look at some of her worst movies in no particular order.

Chandni Chowk To China (2009)

It is not a lesser-known fact that Chandni Chowk To China is one of the worst movies of all time. It seemed like a rip-off of The Karate Kid. From the script to the acting, the whole movie was terrible. Deepika played the love interest of Akshay Kumar in the film.

Race 2 (2013)

Race 2 is an action thriller directed by Abbas Burmawalla. It is the sequel to its first film in 2008. Although the movie did considerably well at the box office, there is no denying that the movie is still not up to the mark. Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor are both wasted talents in this movie. Deepika's performance in the film continues to induce multiple facepalms amongst many fans.

Desi Boyz (2011)

Desi Boyz is a romantic comedy starring Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh. The story is regarding two men who lose their jobs and consider stripping as a career. The repetitive boring comedy will make you want to bash your head. Deepika did not do justice to her talent and underperformed tremendously.

Lafangey Parindey (2010)

This movie was a Hindi romantic drama film. Deepika played the role of Pinky, an aspiring dancer who meets with an accident and loses her eyesight. She meets a street-fighter and they fall in love. The couple, in the movie, tried to portray strong-spirited characters but failed miserably.

Deepika has strong footing in the Indian film industry now. Despite giving a poor performance in some of her movies, the actor's list of good movies outruns her worst movies.
