DEEPIKA PADUKONE WEARS A SMILE AS SHE TAKES OFF TO THE US FOR THE OSCARS
Actor Deepika Padukone, who will present an award at the 95th Academy Awards, flew out of Mumbai on Friday night. In a video shared by a paparazzo account on Instagram, Deepika was seen getting off from her car at Mumbai airport. The actor smiled as she posed for the paparazzi before she headed inside the airport gate.
Deepika posed for the photographers stationed at the airport and said, "Thank you." For her travel, Deepika opted for a black turtleneck sweater under a matching blazer and paired it with denims and heels. She also carried a bag with her and wore glasses.
Deepika's presence at the Oscars 2023 will be at a time when India is nominated in three categories of the awards-- Original Song, Documentary Feature and Documentary Short. She will join Emily Blunt, Samuel L Jackson, Glenn Close, Dwayne Johnson, Michael B Jordan, Janelle Monae, Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Connelly, Riz Ahmed, and Melissa McCarthy among others at the event.
The 95th Academy Awards will be held on March 12 at Los Angeles' Dolly Theatre. This year is significant for India at the Oscars as Naatu Naatu, the hit dance track from SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster RRR, is the frontrunner in the Original Song category. Shaunak Sen's All That Breathes is nominated for the Documentary Feature award, while Guneet Monga-backed Elephant Whisperers is competing in the Documentary Short category.
