Deepika Padukone has been slaying the red carpet for the last three days. Beginning with the Met Gala in the US to her two appearances at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday and Friday, she is ensuring that India does not forget about her even though she is far away. While this year her choice of dresses has been widely appreciated, what has surprised everyone is her missing ‘RK’ tattoo.

Deepika was sporting a high bun for this particular look, so the nape of her neck was visible in some of the pictures.
“Few days ago Deepika had posted her pictures of working out with her instructor and her RK tattoo was visible. However, during her walk on the red carpet in pink attire, which was designed by Ashi Studio, her tattoo was nowhere to be seen. The pictures of her bare back was posted online, and the tattoo seems to be missing. It is not clear Deepika actually got the tattoo removed or has just hidden it with makeup,” a source said.

The actress got inked while she was dating Ranbir Kapoor. Later when their relationship ended, Deepika kept the R but modified the K to look like a flower. This is not the first time that the actor has appeared without the tattoo. Earlier, she hid it with makeup. In 2017, she flaunted the tattoo at Cannes festival.
In an episode of Koffee with Karan, Deepika answered if she plans to permanently have the tattoo erased now that she has moved on. She said, “It’s something that I felt was correct, and even today, I don’t regret it. I have never thought about taking it off. I know the media is constantly saying ‘she has taken it off’, ‘she has lasered it’, ‘she has changed it’ and all kinds of things. It’s very much there and I have no plans of taking it off.”
Deepika is in a relationship with actor Ranveer Singh. While the duo is yet to accept it publicly, their PDAs are proof enough.
Here’s us hoping that the tattoo is still there and it’s just the makeup!
