Actress Deepika Padukone is on a high after her father, former badminton champion Prakash Padukone gifted her one of his prized trophies as a token of appreciation for her success. Prakash had been hearing rave reviews about his daughter Deepika's work and he himself liked her in Cocktail, so he presented her with one of his own trophies for encouragement.
Sources close to the actress claim that Deepika is over the moon and that her father gifting her his trophy was totally unexpected. Sources further added that this means a lot to her. Deepika will be next seen in Race 2, opposite Saif Ali Khan, and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, opposite Ranbir Kapoor. She is currently shooting for Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express with Shah Rukh Khan.
