The usually chirpy and fun loving Deepika Padukone was moved to tears during an appearance on TV reality show 'India's Raw Star' recently.
A performance by Rituraj, a contestant on the music-based show, made her emotional. He sang the melodious number "Abhi mujh mein kahin", and Deepika got so engrossed in the performance that tears welled up in her eyes, said a source from the sets.
A tad speechless, the actress said: "The performance will be on my mind for a long time. It has really moved me."
She was on the show to promote her forthcoming film "Finding Fanny" with her co-star Arjun Kapoor. While on the show, she was also told of the journey of Rituraj, who had left his home three years back and has not gone back to his place ever since.
"India's Raw Star", which features rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh as a mentor, is aired on Star Plus.
