Athens International Airport featured Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone’s bust as part of their latest exhibition.

‘The Authentic Smiles of People of the World’ exhibition was put together when the airport resumed welcoming guests after Covid-19.

The initiative was done to give the travellers a warm welcome.

The bust is in a dark stone and shows her wearing a large choker necklace and her hair is seen tied in a bun.

The actress is seen smiling very slightly in the replica of an ethnic look Deepika sported during a photoshoot for designer Sabyasachi.

The description plaque read:

“Indian Bollywood Actress smiles at Athens International Airport. Grey Marble, 2020 A.D.”

Fans of the actress captured the image and posted it on social media.

Next to her, a bust of a ‘Grammy-winning American singer’ is seen.
