Not just India’s two historic wins at the recently concluded Oscars, even Deepika Padukone’s presence at the coveted event has made the nation proud.
The actress, who was one of the presenters at the 95th Academy Awards, looked ravishing in a classic off-shoulder Louis Vuitton velvet gown and matching gloves. As for her jewelry, DP opted for Cartier statement neckpiece and finished the look with rings on both hands and a pair of diamond bracelets. Deepika tied her hair in a messy bun and went for a clean, barely there make-up.
India won Oscars under the Best Documentary Short Film (The Elephant Whisperers) and Best Original Song (Naatu Naatu from the movie RRR) categories, while Deepika Padukone became the third Indian celebrity to present at the Oscars.
For their special win, filmmaker SS Rajamouli, along with lead actors Ram Charan and Jr NTR, represented RRR and were joined by their families and other members of the film's crew.
At the event, Deepika and Ram Charan were seen hobnobbing with stars from the Western world, such as Mindy Kaling.
