Deepika Padukone recently won the Best Actress award at the Filmfare Awards for her stellar act in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku. An emotional Deepika thanked her parents on her big day. The smiling queen of Bollywood was covered in tears, as she read out a special letter. Deepika’s thank you speech at the award ceremony was exceptional. Imagine our excitement when we spotted a video of Deepika’s speech.
Deepika said, “I want to dedicate this award to my parents. There is a little letter that my father wrote to me and my sister Anisha, which I felt it is apt to read out now, specially since the award is for my movie PIKU.” She read, “Dear Deepika and Anisha, As you stand on the threshold of life’s journey, I want to share with you some lessons that life has taught me. Decades ago as a little boy growing in Bangalore I started my tryst with Badminton. In those days, there were no stadiums and no courts. The Badminton court was a wedding hall near our house and it is there that I learnt everything about the game…”
Deepika went on to read the thought-provoking letter with such pride and emotion that the whole scene is really heart-warming and touching.
Watch it for yourselves as the dimpled beauty of Bollywood reads out some pearls of wisdom in between sobs.
Isn’t that adorable?
