    Padukone, dressed in a checkered black and white dress, grey coat and green boots, features in a reimagined poster of 'Don't Turn Around'. The actress shared the news on her Instagram handle, and actor-husband Ranveer Singh was quick to leave a comment on her post.

    "I am beyond thrilled to be joining the Louis Vuitton family! To be a part of Nicholas Ghesquière's vision for the world’s most iconic brand is not only exciting but also very humbling!," the actress captioned the post.

    An impressed Singh, who stars opposite his wife in the upcoming ''83', commented "Next level" on her post.
