Actress Deepika Padukone's performance to Malhari, which originally features her rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh, has moved the actor. He said that nothing makes him happier than Deepika, who performed at the IIFA Awards in Madrid.
The two seem to share a great bond but neither Ranveer nor Deepika have commented on their rumoured relationship.
Ranveer won Best Actor award for his performance in Bajirao Mastani. In his acceptance speech, he mentioned Deepika and said: "I was very moved by that performance. Leela to Ram, Mastani to Bajirao. I want to know which is next. Girl, you are so fine and by fine I mean a fine performer. What an actor."
"Nothing makes me happier than you, Deepika. Nothing makes me happier than receiving this award with you," he added.
There were reports that all is not well between the rumoured duo.
However, after his win, the Lootera star expressed his joy on Twitter on Sunday:
Deepika won Best Actress for her role in Shoojit Sircar's Piku.
The four-day gala (June 23-June 26) celebrates the magic of Indian cinema at an international destination every year. Madrid is the fourth European destination to host the IIFA extravaganza.
