A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone)

Deepika was joined by her family and Ranveer Singh, who enjoyed his first tryst with the full-blown event that also saw an opening performance by Shankar Mahadevan.

The superstar who has been ruling Bollywood for over a decade took this opportunity to connect with her roots and the larger community and discuss her journey, the culture’s influence, her upbringing and her professional journey during her hour-long fireside chat.

What made the occasion even more special was having her family there as well as her husband Ranveer Singh who joined her on stage; as the power couple had the San Jose McEnery Convention Center echoing with thunderous applause.

As one of the biggest global Konkani icons in the world, Deepika Padukone has been a powerful influence on the community who look upon her with pride. The superstar later took to her social media to thank the Konkani Association of California. She posted, “A people without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. Thank you #KAOCA and to the people of my community for your love, warmth and blessings. I couldn’t be more proud.”
