Bollywood’s ‘Mastani’ Deepika Padukone was star-struck after meeting Rafael Nadal here, and thanked the Spanish tennis legend for giving her “memories” to cherish for a lifetime.

The actress is in the national capital to promote her forthcoming film “Bajirao Mastani”, but she made the most of her visit by going ahead and meeting Nadal, who was here for his International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) match.

“Thank you Rafa for some wonderful memories… @RafaelNadal,” Deepika tweeted along with a photograph which showed the two striking a happy pose.

He tweeted: “Con la increíble @DeepikaPadukone en #Delhi :) With the incredible Deepika Padukone in #Delhi! #Bollywood”.
