There isn’t a better feeling to be appreciated by your peers, and being recognized for the good work you’re doing! A similar moment happened at the IIFA Awards held last night in Mumbai, marking 20 years of the award ceremony. Ranveer Singh won the Best Actor award, and when he went on stage to accept it, he was all praises for host Ayushmann Khurrana. The video was shared on Twitter by singer Harshdeep Kaur, who was also present at the ceremony –

Ayushmann Khurrana was on stage with brother Aparshakti Khurrana, as the duo were hosting the award ceremony. As Ranveer Singh went on stage to accept it, he came to Ayushmann’s side, shook hands with him, and spoke about the actor and his ever-surprising body of work. Ranveer Singh said about Ayushmann-
It’s an absolute honour to be nominated alongside this wonderful artists, who just keeps surprising. You’re like the gift that keeps on giving Hindi cinema. The man of the moment, for me, Ayushmann Khurrana, ladies and gentlemen!
The audience broke into an applause, as the two actors hugged each other. Ranveer Singh did a nazar utaarna gesture towards Ayushmann, while the latter blew a flying kiss in his direction. This was not the only display of affection that Ranveer had done, as right before he went on stage to accept the award, he kissed his wife Deepika Padukone! It was a rather awkward kiss, as it almost looked as if Deepika was saying no to it, and once she had said no, Ranveer went for her cheek. Watch the video here –
When it comes to expressing love for the ones we love, we all struggle. We all could take notes from Ranveer Singh, who goes ahead and showers his affection equally as much as on Ayushmann Khurrana and Deepika Padukone!
