Deepika looked gorgeous in an off-shoulder black gown as she walked on the stage and presented the performance on the now Academy Award winning song Naatu Naatu from Telugu film RRR.
Presenting the song, Deepika said, "In addition to being sung in Telugu and illustrating the film's anti-colonial themes, it's also a total banger..."
"Do you know Naatu? Because if you don't, you're about to. From the film RRR, this is Naatu Naatu," she added.
