Ranveer Singh professes his love for Deepika Padukone at IIFA

From Ranbir Kapoor to Aamir Khan, nobody was safe when Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh took the stage at IIFA in Malaysia. Ranveer also took out time to dance a jig and flirt with girlfriend Deepika Padukone.

From making fun of Aamir Khan's stand against the controversial comedy show AIB Roast and breaking down into impromptu jigs to flirting with actor Deepika Padukone, IIFA 2015 hosts Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor did not leave any stone unturned to make the ceremony entertaining.

Deepika and Ranveer are together but have not yet accepted the relationship publically. However, that has never stopped Ranveer from dropping a few helpful hints. At the awards night too, Arjun pointed out the Piku actor to Ranveer, to which he replied, "Tab se wahi toh dekh raha hoon".

When Deepika came to receive the ‘Woman of the Year’ award, Ranveer got down on his knees and recited a few romantic lines for her. He also sang the song 'Ram chahe Leela' from their film Ram Leela.

The Gunday stars did not spare any Bollywood actor or issues pertaining to the Hindi film industry during their high-octane hosting debut at the jampacked Putra stadium here.

Ranveer and Arjun kicked off their act by apologising for their stint on the expletive-laden AIB Roast, which had resulted in FIRs against both the actors.

Arjun and Ranveer faced a lot of heat for participating in the AIB Roast along with Karan Johar.

"We did something which offended many people. The gig involved us and a very famous director (Karan Johar). Many people said many things about it and FIR was also lodged against us. Politicians were angry," the duo said before jokingly adding, "We are very sorry about 'Gunday'."

They sang a parody on Aamir, who had called the roast 'violent' rather than 'funny'.

"Hume maaf karna, O Aamir Khan. Hum kabhi nhi lenge Reema Lagoo and Farida Jalal ka naam," they sang.

The actors, both 29, even turned rappers on stage with Baba Sehgal's song "Mere baatein sun ke tum hasna nahi", where they poked fun at politicians and Aamir's reaction to the infamous show.

Aamir's reaction to AIB Roast was lampooned by Arjun and Ranveer at the event.

The actors, who made a grand entry on the stage with a pun on the film Karan Arjun, greeted the host country Malaysia with mentions of Bollywood films shot in the South-East Asian nation like Don, Fanaa, Humraaz and the more recent Roy.

The 2 States star took a jibe at the Arjun Rampal-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer, which saw Ranbir Kapoor in a guest appearance, saying, "The film should be called Destroy and not Roy."

Another Ranbir-starrer, Bombay Velvet, was also at the receiving end of the mockery as the hosts narrated the nursery poem "Johnny Johnny" referring to the Barfi! star's character name Johnny Balraj in the film.

"Ranbir should be named Roti in the film because his co-star Anushka was called Rosie and that makes Rosie-Roti. And they both took the Rosie-Roti away from Anurag Kashyap's pocket," they said.
