Chennai Express Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone has shared BTS images of one of the most memorable characters of Meenamma from ‘Chennai Express’ marking its 7 years anniversary.

Remember the time when ‘Chennai Express’ released and the character of Meenamma had ruled our minds, especially for the quirk and fun that Meenamma brought to the screens. The film was a huge hit, commercially and everyone could not stop raving about Deepika’s character and her brilliant performance.


Deepika Padukone had played the character of Meenamma who was the daughter of a don and with all of that heavy south accent the name had, we are sure you pronounced it right in your head. It was one of the most difficult roles that Deepika had to essay and she did a phenomenal job with the same. The connection the character had made with the audience is so strong that even today, whenever we think about her there is always nothing but a good smile and the most memorable scene of the movie, is the one when Meenamma kicked Shahrukh Khan out of the bed.

“Unforgettable!❤️#7YearsOfChennaiExpress#Meenamma@itsrohitshetty@iamsrk@redchilliesent@utvfilms,” she captioned the pics.

Directed by Rohit Shetty, the film was a massive hit.
