Deepika Padukone

Bollywood’s popular entertainer Deepika Padukone, who was recently seen doing the “Lungi dance” with Hollywood ace Kevin Spacey at an awards event, says he looked graceful like no other man in a lungi.

“I haven’t seen a more graceful man in a lungi,” Deepika Padukone said as she received the Entertainer of the Year trophy at the NDTV Indian of the Year Awards here Tuesday.

At the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend and Awards, which took place in Tampa Bay, Florida last week, Deepika won a similar title – given her four back-to-back hits in 2013.

Her moment of sheer happiness came when Spacey not just handed over her IIFA trophy to her, but also agreed to wrap a lungi and do the “Lungi dance”, a unique style popularised by Deepika and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer “Chennai Express”.

At the NDTV Indian of the Year Awards, Deepika received the award from sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, who blessed her and gave her good wishes for the future.
