Some Lesser Known Facts About Anisha Padukone
- Does Anisha Padukone smoke?: No
- Does Anisha Padukone drink alcohol?: Not Known
Anisha was born on 2nd February 1991. She is 27 years old. Of course, her genetic attributes coupled with her active role as an athlete means that she looks much younger than her age.
She is extremely fit and agile as one would expect from a professional golfer like her.
It is believed that Anisha was born in Bangalore, Karnataka, though this fact is not confirmed.
Anisha, like Deepika, completed her education at Sophia High School, Bangalore. She graduated from Mount Carmel College, Bangalore.
Anisha started participating in golf tournaments when she was only 16 years old.
In an interview to Golfing Indian, she revealed that being the daughter of Prakash Padukone, the Badminton champion, and sister of Deepika Padukone, has advantages and disadvantages.
The advantage is that she receives proper guidance from her father and sister about how to manage her career, which tournaments to accept, which to reject etc.
The disadvantage is that there are expectations placed on Anisha which are not there on her peers.
However, thankfully, Prakash Padukone and Deepika have counseled Anisha properly and ensured that she has learnt how to handle stress and expectations and not buckle under them.
Presently, Anisha plays on the junior tour and also represents India in select events.
Anisha has written an article in sportskeeda in which she has described her ‘love-hate’ relationship with golf.
“Hitting a stationary white ball towards a target, while controlling the distance and direction requires as much technical ability as any other specialist profession. Being the most technical sport that I have ever played, I set out trying to achieve the perfect swing. You eventually taught me that chasing perfection is not the ultimate goal in life. Perfection can be used as a motivator, but in the end what counts is being effective and getting the job done, while adding your own flair to it,” Anisha says.
“From elation to heartbreak, fear to frustration, anger to nirvana, you have made me experience a plethora of emotions during competitive rounds. Sometimes all, or most of them during the same round! But through this roller-coaster ride, I have learnt to manage my emotions, keenly observing without a reaction, like watching passers-by on a busy street,” she adds.
As expected, Deepika and Anisha are like best friends given that there is an age difference of only five years between them.
Thankfully, there is no jealously between them. Instead, each is protective of the other.
The deep bond between the two sisters is cemented by the fact that they are in different careers and there is no occasion for one to step on the toes of the other.
It is not known if Anisha has a boyfriend. She is quite reserved and not the flirtatious kind.
However, in the Vogue BFF show with Neha Dhupia, Deepika described Ranbir Kapoor as the “best kisser”.
Anisha candidly admitted that she aspired to go on a date with Ranbir Kapoor some day.
Anisha, being born in February, is an Aquarian.
She has all the positive qualities that people born under the Aquarius sun sign possess, namely, truthfulness, affectionate personality, frank and imaginative.
She also has positive traits of being a humanitarian and philanthropic.
