Deepika Padukone is one of the leading actresses of Bollywood. Her recent roles in some of the movies have helped her claim the top positions in the industry. In the 61st Filmfare Awards of 2016, Deepika won the Award of the Best Actress for her role in Piku.
Listen to her whole speech here.
Her acceptance speech for the award was one of the most moving things ever. She read out a letter that her father had written to her and her sister and it indeed had some pearls of wisdom. The letter perfectly captured the close bond that she shares with her father and how they have been an instrument for her success in life.
The life lessons that Prakash Padukone shared with his daughters made everyone in the audience cry. Teary eyed Deepika also mentioned this- “If you occasionally wonder why we refuse to treat you like a star it’s because you are our daughter first and a film star later. The camera that follows you everywhere and the arc-lights will eventually fade. What will remain is the real world.”
