When she was cross-questioned about having been born in Denmark, Deepika said: “But I still have an Indian passport. There’s a lot of complication and I am very much an Indian, a proud Indian citizen.”

For casting her vote on Monday, Deepika chose a casual look in a pair of jeans and a loose shirt.

Her husband, actor Ranveer Singh also cast his vote and took to social media to share a picture of his inked finger.
