While, Deepika hinted at a special someone while accepting her best actress award for Piku, in which she played a cranky daughter, who lives with her hypochondriac father.

She thanked several people including writers and the unsung heroes of the film industry like the technicians. But before leaving the stage she did not forget to take a moment and thank the “special person” in her life.

“I want to thank Juhi (Chaturvedi, Piku writer) who made my performance worthwhile. I thank all spot boys, light men who work so hard behind the scenes. I also thank my team and that special person, you know who you are,” the actress said.
