Badminton Legend and Deepika’s father, Prakash Padukone was recently felicitated by the Badminton Association of India (BAI) with Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was conferred by Vice-President of India, Venkaiah Naidu.
One of the most heartwarming moments during the event was when Deepika got teary eyed when she saw her father receive the award. It just goes on to show that beneath all the stardom Deepika is still Dad’s little girl.
The entire Padukone family attended the event. Prakash Padukone was the first Indian to win the All England Open Badminton Championships. Both his daughters, Deepika and Anisha have established themselves in their respective careers. Deepika has been recently receiving a lot of appreciation for her breathtaking performance in Padmaavat.
This is not the first time when Deepika got emotional. A few years back, she broke down as she received an award from her father.
“The team of Newsera would like to congratulate Mr. Prakash Padukone.”
