B-towners impressed as Junior Mallya plays the attentive escort to Deepika's dad Prakash Padukone at premiere of her film Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey
Deepika Padukone is yet to publicly admit to her relationship with Siddharth Mallya, but actions speak louder than words, especially a guy's actions towards his girlfriend's father.
And that's what happened at the premiere of Dippy's latest film Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey at a suburban theatre on Thursday night.

Dippy and Sid came together with her father Prakash Padukone in a car. While the badminton ace occupied the seat next to the driver, the couple enjoyed the comfort of each other and the relatively roomy back seat.
The Mallya scion was by her side throughout the evening, except when he was busy helping his girlfriend's father.
Siddharth, who is more used to jostling crowds than the senior Padukone, escorted him amid the onlookers to relative safety.
His attentiveness towards Deepika's dad did not go unnoticed and quite a few B-Towners present at the event were impressed by Siddharth's actions.
Deepika was earlier seeing Ranbir Kapoor. They broke up after Ranbir's fidelity came under a scanner. Deepika and Siddharth were spotted getting cosy during the third edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year.
She was the celeb supporter for Royal Challengers Bangalore, the IPL team owned by the senior Mallya. During her modelling days, the actress has also featured in calendars brought out by the Mallyas.
