Madrid, June 26 (IANS) Actress Deepika Padukone's performance to her rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh's song from the film "Bajirao Maastani" moved the actor. He says that nothing makes him happier than his "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela" co-star.
The two seem to share a great bond but neither Ranveer nor Deepika have officially accepted their relationship in public.
However, when Deepika hit the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards stage here on Saturday night and chose one of Ranveer's song from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial "Bajirao Maastani" to dance to, Ranveer said he was moved by the performance.
While receiving the Best Actor award for his performance in the film, he mentioned Deepika in his acceptance speech 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 then receiving this award with you," he added.
Though he simply called her a "fine performer", there were reports that the rumoured couple broke up after Deepika visited Ranveer in Paris.
However, the "Lootera" star put an end to the rumours by sharing a cryptic message on Sunday on Twitter.
"Leela to my Ram...Mastani to my Bajirao...Best Actress to my Best Actor Deepika Padukone. IIFA 2016. Koi Shaq (any doubts?)," Ranveer tweeted.
The four-day gala -- which celebrates the magic of Indian cinema at an international destination every year -- began on June 23. Madrid is the fourth European destination to host the IIFA extravaganza.
