Although she is known to be a thorough professional, Deepika Padukone’s health recently played havoc with her work schedule. The actor, who seems to have pushed herself a bit too much, fell ill over the weekend due to exhaustion.

As a result, her professional commitments had to be rescheduled. “Last week, Deepika worked for 30 hours straight.

After shooting for Farah’s film for 16 odd hours, she rushed to a dance performance she had at an award function,” says a source. Not only did she perform at the event, but she also went through a rehearsal with the team before she hit the stage. The source adds, “She was working till late on Friday (February 14) when she almost fainted. After resting for a bit, when she woke up, she had a high fever and was feeling extremely weak.” Her doctor, who rushed to see her the next day, has advised her complete bed rest for a few days. 

Deepika had a hectic weekend ahead with a magazine shoot and a brand commitment scheduled, but because she was so weak, she had no option but to stay home and rest. She doesn’t want to jeopardise any more work, which is why she is concentrating on recuperating soon,” says the source.

The actor’s spokesperson confirmed the news.
