The season of award ceremonies officially began with the most sought after awards, Filmfare Awards, happening last night. Starting the year with a bang were many actors, directors, cinematographers and others, who grabbed awards in their respective categories.

The highlight of any such award ceremony is always the Best Actor and Best Actress category, with fans and nominees eagerly waiting to know the results. This year Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone won the award for their roles in Bajirao Mastani and Piku, respectively.  


While many people thank God, their directors, producers and the whole industry in their acceptance speech, our lady here chose something different and personal.

Deepika, who was nominated for her roles in Piku, Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani read out a heartwarming letter from her father, Prakash Padukone, 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.”


That was beautiful, and this is just the beginning of many more awards to come. Kudos to you, Deepika!
