Ranveer Singh carries Deepika Padukone’s veil at IIFA, gets wax statue beside her at Madame Tussauds: ‘Wife’s putla is sexiest’
Actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh attended the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards on Wednesday and made sure all eyes were on them. From turning up in their most glamourous avatars to sitting together hand in hand, the couple stole the spotlight at the event in more ways than one.
Deepika sizzled in a shimmery lavender gown with a long veil. Though she managed the long veil on the green carpet, Ranveer was seen lifting it as she walked ahead of him at one point of time.
The couple was also seen chatting continuously as they sat in the front row with Alia Bhatt and Daisy Shah on each side. While Alia sat near Deepika in a skin-tone gown, Daisy Shah was seen sitting besides Ranveer in a shimmery black and silver gown.
Ranveer won the IIFA Best Leading Actor (Male) award for his performance in the film Padmaavat. While he played the antagonist Alauddin Khilji, Deepika played the female lead -- Rani Padmavati in the film. He even praised Deepika in his speech and said, “It’s a miracle and a blessing I made it as an actor. To do what I love to do for a living is a gift.”
