Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic was spotted living it up in Los Angeles, California, on Tuesday, attending a basketball game between the Orlando Magic and the LA Lakers, followed by a visit to an upscale bar frequented by Hollywood A-listers.
However, as per a Daily Mail report, he wasn't alone: the British tabloid described his female companion as a "leggy brunette" who was "impeccably turned-out" in a "flirty frock". It added that the duo were keen to leave the venue, called The Nice Guy, unnoticed. The report could not identify his female friend, who remained unnamed throughout.
However, as per the pictures, it should be clear to hundreds of millions of Bollywood enthusiasts across the world that the woman was none other than Deepika Padukone, who is in LA to shoot for her upcoming Hollywood debut, xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage.

Twitter reacted with amusement to the news, rather than discussing the possibilities of any romantic development between Padukone, who is dating Ranveer Singh, and Djokovic, who is happily married.
