  1. 1

    Stand up straight. Keep your head up and your shoulders drawn back. Deepika is quite tall and has excellent posture; although you may not be her equal in height, standing up straight makes you look taller.

  2. 2

    Tone your body. Maintain a daily schedule of cardiovascular exercise; take up weight training to sculpt toned arms and shoulders like Deepika's. Take a dance class to improve flexibility and coordination.

  3. 3

    Dye your hair. Select a colour that compliments your skin tone; keep in mind that Deepika is Indian and has very dark hair. Choose black hair dye if your skin tone is medium to dark. Go for a dark brown dye if your skin tone is fair or pale. Carefully follow the directions that come with the dye to ensure proper application and coverage.

  4. 4

    Learn to create an up-do. When appearing at awards functions and other public events, Deepika often wears her hair in a classic up-do. Curl the ends of your hair, then fasten your hair in a low ponytail. Pinch a lock of hair between the ponytail and the end; bring it up to the ponytail holder. Fasten with a hair clip. Repeat until all the hair has been fastened, then apply hairspray.

  5. 5

    Put on a sari. Drape it by tying it around your waist; wrap it around twice more. Take the loose end and pull it over your chest diagonally, allowing several feet of fabric to fall over your shoulder. Pull any slack material at your waist away from your stomach and pleat the material, tucking the pleat into the waist. Use pins to hold the pleat.

  6. 6

    Put on dramatic make-up. Deepika is fond of a smoky-eye effect. To create the effect, apply a dark eyeshadow onto your eyelids, using a slightly darker colour in the crease. Use a brush to blend the two colours. Finish the look by applying several layers of dark mascara. To finish Deepika's look, apply a deep red lipstick.
