London: Actress Deepika Padukone made heads turn at the 77th British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) where she graced the stage as a presenter, eschewing the typical gown for a stunning saree.

Presenting filmmaker Jonathan Glazer with the Bafta for the 'Film Not in English' category at the ceremony on Sunday, the 38-year-old star highlighted the profound impact of the nominated films, stating, "The incredible stories nominated in this category depict the real and imagined world that stay with us long after the credits roll. From the Alps to the Andes, South Poland to Seoul and to Ukraine…" before announcing Glazer's The Zone of Interest as the winner. Deepika's ensemble for the event included a couture saree and custom jewelry by Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

The actress, known for her roles in Hindi cinema, had previously introduced the performance of the song "Naatu Naatu" at the Oscars last year, which went on to win an Academy Award.

Hosted by actor David Tennant, the ceremony saw Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer scoop multiple awards, including best film, Best Director for Nolan, Leading Actor for Cillian Murphy, Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr, as well as trophies for original score, editing, and cinematography.

Emma Stone secured the leading actress trophy for her portrayal in "Poor Things," which also received recognition for makeup, production design, costume design, and special visual effects. Alongside Deepika, the event featured presenters such as David Beckham, singer Dua Lipa, Cate Blanchett, Hugh Grant, and Lily Collins.
