Continuing with the Box Office Report Card trend, this week we analyze the rising star Deepika Padukone. From her debut in 2007 with Om Shanti Om to her latest release Chennai Express, this model turned actress has time and again proved her mettle.

In this edition of the report card, we analyze Deepika's career graph that boasts of her being the only actress to cross the Rs. 500 crore mark in a single year. In fact this year, the actress had three big releases till now, namely Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express. She also has another biggie, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela up for release.

Interestingly, with the release of just three films, the actress is expected to aggregate a total of Rs. 500 cr+ becoming the first actress in a calendar year to reach the unheard of mark. If that wasn't enough, with Ram Leela she might clock Rs. 550 or even Rs. 600 cr.

Making it a first, Deepika surpasses her competitors, Sonakshi Sinha who had four releases in 2012 grossed Rs. 415.79 crore at second place followed by Katrina Kaif, at third with Rs. 319.63 crores in 2012 (Ek Tha Tiger and Jab Tak Hai Jaan) and Kareena Kapoor at fourth, whose movies collected Rs. 263.15 crores in 2011 (Bodyguard and Ra.One).
