Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey a.k.a. the world's favourite breakout dancer busted some moves with Bollywood star Deepika Padukone onstage at the International Indian Film Academy Awards.

Alongside co-hosts Farhan Akhtar and Shahid Kapoor, Kevin enthusiastically followed Deepika's lead as they did the Lungi Dance made popular by 2013 Indian action-comedy film Chennai Express.

He even sportingly tied a lungi (sarong) around his tuxedo-wearing self, to overwhelming cheers – more like screams, really – from the audience. On that note, lower the volume before you hit play. Seriously.

This is the first time the IIFA Awards were held in the US, with Kevin presenting the Entertainer of the Year award to Deepika. John Travolta (actor and actual dancer) was also present and did not deny the crowd his signature Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction moves as he went onstage to accept the award for Most Popular All Time International Star in India.
