Deepika touching emotional speech !!
After slaying the box-office with a stupendous performance in Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer won Best Actor for the film. Padukone, who was nominated for both Piku and Bajirao Mastani, won it for playing the perfect daughter to a constipated nagging old man in Shoojit Sircar's Piku. We aren’t surprised, are we?
After sweeping the most prestigious award of the season, the evening turned overwhelming for Deepika. And why not? When an actor gets validated for the efforts that are put in, it's bound to feel good. This is the second Best Actress trophy for Deepika after she won for Raam Leela in 2013.
While many actors thank the entire cast and crew, family and co-stars, Deepika dedicated the trophy to her parents. Unlike other actors, DeePee read out an old letter her father had written to her, years back, as her acceptance speech. She read:
"If you love what you do nothing else matters, not even awards. Follow your heart and live your dream. You are our daughter and then an actress."
Deepika hugged her dad Prakash Padukone and this sight left the audience teary-eyed. Another high point for Deepika was receiving the trophy from none other than Rekha.
