The B-town diva Deepika Padukone is set to be among the presenters at the BAFTA Film Awards 2024. The actress who made her debut at the Oscars last year this time will join David Beckham, Cate Blanchett, Dua Lipa, and many more global stars to hand over the coveted golden mask on February 18.

Deepika on Tuesday morning, sharing the list of presenters on her Instagram story, wrote, “Gratitude”. And this is not the first time the actress has made India proud on a global stage. She was the only Indian to be on the Cannes Jury, to unveil the FIFA World Cup trophy, and also to become the first face of the world’s luxury brands.

The BAFTA Film Awards 2024 are happening on Sunday night at the Royal Festival Hall in London. This year, Christopher Nolen’s film Oppenheimer leads the nomination which has secured 13 nods.
