It's a proud moment for India as Deepika Padukone has been announced as a presenter at the Oscars 2023.

On Thursday night, Deepika took to Instagram and shared a post with the names of all the presenters.

The list also includes Dwayne Johnson, Michael B Jordan, Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Troy Kotsur, Jennifer Connelly, Samuel L Jackson, Melissa McCarthy, Zoe Saldana, Donnie Yen, Jonathan Majors and Questlove.

Sharing the post, Deepika simply wrote, '#oscars#oscars95'.

In no time, netizens flooded Deepika's comment section with congratulatory wishes.

'Can't wait to watch you Deepu,' Neha Dhupia commented.

'Boom', Deepika's sister Anisha Padukone commented.

Deepika's husband Ranveer Singh dropped clapping emojis in the comment section.

The Academy Awards will be held on March 12 (March 13 in India) at the Dolly Theater in Los Angeles.

It's a special year for India at the Oscars. This time around, not just one, but three significant Indian movies are competing for the coveted Oscars Awards 2023 nominations.

RRR is on the shortlist for Best Original Song for the dance song Naatu Naatu, which won the Golden Globe Award in the same category earlier this year.

Shaunak Sen's All That Breathes has been nominated for Best Documentary Feature Film and Guneet Monga's The Elephant Whisperers for Best Documentary Short.

Deepika will be the third Indian to present an Oscar -- fresh from her appearance in Star Trek, Persis Khambhatta was the first to do so in 1980, followed by Priyanka Chopra 36 years later, in 2016.
