Deepika Padukone thanks her ‘Baba’ Amitabh Bachchan for token of appreciation

SNS | New Delhi |

Actor Deepika Padukone is on cloud nine after the mammoth success of Padmaavat and the actor has one more reason to celebrate the glorious feat.

After Ranveer Singh, Deepika received her token of appreciation from megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who sent a bouquet of flowers with a special note for the actor.

Deepika, who is on a much needed break after the release of her controversy ridden film, posted an image on Instagram where the actor thanks Big B for the apprciation.

In the shared image Deepika’s caption is a bit emotional as it reads: “There are awards, there are rewards and then there is this..thank you baba”

Those of you who don’t know that why Deepika referred to Big B as ‘Baba’ is because in Piku (2015) Amitabh played the role of Deepika’s father.

Apparently, Deepika was overwhelmed by Bachchan’s warm gesture and who wouldn’t be when the biggest star of the industry has something special to say about you.

The stunning actor was not the only who received Mr Bachchan’s special ‘award’ as Padmaavat’s bad guy Ranveer was the first one to receive Big B’s appreciation for his performance.

Ranveer was not only overwhelmed with the gift but also claims that he has got his ‘award’ from the star of the millennium.

Mujhe mera award mil gaya…😇🙏🏽 @amitabhbachchan

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Padmaavat was released worldwide on January 25 in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
