Bollywood's Deepika Padukone will unveil the FIFA World Cup trophy during the final to be held on December 18 at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Qatar, reported Indian publication Business Standard, citing sources close to the actor's team.

According to reports, Padukone is expected to fly to Qatar soon to participate in the event.

The 36-year-old actor will be the first Bollywood actor to be given the recognition at an international sporting event of such a magnitude. The development comes just a few months after Padukone represented India as a jury member at the Cannes Film Festival, held earlier this year.
