Bollywood Sibling Tales! Meet Deepika Padukone’s sister Anisha, an aspiring golfer


Apart from cricket, other sports do not get much recognition in India.

So in this FPJ special feature we bring to you some interesting facts about the aspiring golfer of India, who is also a sister of top Bollywood celebrity Deepika Padukone.
