‘Kevin Spacey was graceful in a lungi!’

‘I haven't seen a more graceful man in a lungi,’ Deepika said as she received the Entertainer of the Year trophy at a media award function 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 - Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewani, Gooliyon ki Rasleela: Ram Leela, Chennai Express and Race 2 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 awards function in the Capital, Deepika received the award from sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, who blessed her and gave her good wishes for the future. Deepika's forthcoming films include Happy New Year and Finding Fanny.
