LONDON (IANS) – Indian actress Deepika Padukone presented the honor of Best Film not in the English language to Jonathan Glazer for ‘The Zone of Interest’ at the BAFTA Awards.

The actress looked gorgeous as she took the spotlight dressed in a silver shimmery sequined saree with a matching blouse by ace couturier Sabyasachi.

Deepika made heads turn with her dewy makeup and kohl-rimmed eyes. Her messy hair bun and statement earrings accentuated her look.

Just last year, she was seen at the Oscars, when she introduced the song ‘Nattu Nattu’ from the movie ‘RRR’. This time she went fully Indian and received great praise from netzines.

At BAFTA, she was on the list of presenters including football superstar David Beckham, singer Dua Lipa, Cate Blanchett, Adjoa Andoh of ‘Bridgerton’ fame, ‘Wonka’ Oompa Loompa Hugh Grant, and ‘Emily in Paris’ Lily Collins. In the audience was Prince William.

‘The Zone of Interest’, a UK-Polish historical drama was contending alongside films such as “20 Days in Mariupol”, “Anatomy of a Fall”, “Past Lives” and “Society of the Snow”. The film is based on the 2014 novel by Martin Amis and has also been nominated for Oscars.

It focuses on the family of the camp commandant, Rudolf Höss, his wife Hedwig, and their five children living a regular life next door to the chamber of horrors.

Hoss ran Auschwitz between 1940 and 1943 and used the poisonous insecticide Zyklon B to gas prisoners. An estimated 1.1 million were murdered at Auschwitz, one million of whom were Jews. Yet, just meters away, his family enjoyed their spacious house, plentiful food, and manicured garden — separated from the camp by a concrete wall, notes BBC.
