It was not a film sequence but a real emotional moment one would get easily moved as Bollywood queen Deepika Padukone broke down before the camera.
The dramatic events unfurled at the TV chat show, 'Baatein with Baadshah,' hosted by Shah Rukh Khan.
Amid the chat show, Shah Rukh read out a letter from the actress' mother Ujjala Padukone. The Bajirao Mastani actress turned emotional and made futile attempts to hold back her tears.
The letter which praised the actress' achievements in her professional life went on to compliment her ability to distinguish between what is personal and professional. Tears rolled down her cheeks uncontrollably as Shah Rhukh read on.
King Khan, who is known for deftly handling critical situations, got up, walked to the actress and wiped her tears. The Instagram video of the heart touching moments has gone viral on social media.
Deepika Padukone made her Bollywood entry though the super hit Shah Rukh Khan starrer Om Shanti Om, directed by Farah Khan. There has been no looking back for Padukone since then and with a plethora of Bollywood hits the actress has risen to superstardom and became one of the highest paid actress in the Indian film industry.
