Bollywood star Deepika Padukone was on Saturday officially announced as a newly appointed global ambassador of beauty brand LOréal Paris, joining the likes of Jane Fonda, Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

“I’ve always believed that feeling beautiful begins with feeling confident about yourself and L’Oréal Paris with its powerful message ‘Because we’re worth it’, has always encouraged women to do that,” Deepika said in a statement, adding that she finds it a privilege to represent the brand.

Deepika’s Bollywood journey began with Om Shanti Om in 2007, and she has been on a roll ever since, showcasing her versatility as an actor in movies like Piku, Finding Fanny, Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani. She made her Hollywood debut this year with the Vin Diesel’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Alongside her acting career, Deepika is vocal about issues close to her heart and has founded ‘The Live, Love, Laugh Foundation’, to create awareness about mental health issues in India.

Deepika’s “beauty, confidence and grace” coupled with how she is “intelligent, sensitive and self-made”, have been described as reasons why she has been roped in as an ambassador for the brand, L’Oréal Paris officials said.

At an event here on Friday night, Deepika was asked if she will walk the red carpet of Cannes Film Festival as a representative of the brand. She said she won’t be able to as all her energies are currently focussed on her new project Padmavati.
