Deepika’s character in Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani have already set a benchmark and looking at the rave reviews, Malti has only added to the list. This only goes on to prove how the actress takes every nuance of the character she portrays and portrays it on screens- Malti being one of the finest examples. Some are calling it her career-best while the others are calling it unbelievable.
