Bollywood star Deepika Padukone on Saturday treated fans to a super adorable throwback photo from her childhood days adding a quirky caption to it.

Indiranagar is a locality in Bengaluru, which is the hometown of both Padukone and Dravid.
The ‘Om Shanti Om’ star hopped on to Instagram and put out a priceless picture from her archives and wrote alongside it, “Indiranagar ki gundi hoon main!” and added a laughing with teary eyes emoticon.
The picture sees Deepika dressed up in winter clothes a hand-knitted white cap and a light brown sweater with blue stripes and peach coloured pants with pink woollen socks. The tiny tot is seen chewing on something as she keeps her hand close to her mouth. With fringes peeking out of the cap, baby Deepika who is seen sitting on the floor by her bed sports a smile as she looks at the camera.
