Deepika Padukone spoke at length about her marriage plans, relationship with Ranveer and low points in her life.
Bollywood’s wild child Ranveer Singh and the beautiful Deepika Padukone seem to be the perfect example of how opposites attract. Ranveer’s public display of affection can make any guy seriously envious. Women love him, and men want to be like him. Unlike his contemporaries, who keep their private life under wraps, the 32-year-old Ranveer has always remained vocal about his love for Deepika.
The love which began on the sets of the 2013 film Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela has only grown stronger by the day. However, rumours of break-up made headlines recently, however, Ranveer and Deepika shut their detractors when they hosted Padmavati’s trailer success party recently.
And now Deepika in an interview to Filmfare spoke at length about her marriage plans, relationship with Ranveer and low points in her life.
Here’s what she said:
On beau Ranveer Singh
Their love story is one of the favourites among Bollywood fans. They fell in love on the sets of a film, and four years down the line, their bond is still strong. Talking about her equation with Ranveer, Deepika told the magazine, “When we’re with each other, we don’t need anything or anyone else. We’re comfortable in each other’s presence. Sometimes it’s intelligent conversation, sometimes just silence, sometimes there’s a childlike innocence. We keep each other grounded. We are good in that sense.”
Bollywood fans have been awaiting Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding. The two have been going steady for a while, and everyone is waiting for them to take the next step. But Deepika is in no hurry. “Hmmm…and what would the next level be? It’s not obvious. I don’t know if marriage per se… Because I believe every relationship has its natural progression. I’m discovering that myself,” she added.
On plans to settle down in 2018
Deepika revealed that she wants to become a homemaker and start her family, but when, she has no idea. “I can’t put a year to it. Honestly, I’ve never been able to do anything that is time bound. I believe relationships have their way of unfolding. As far as my equation with him is concerned, I am sure that will unfold in its own manner. I can’t wait to be a homemaker. Because from the time I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to be that. I’ve always wanted to start a family,” said Bajirao Mastani actor.
On low points in her life
She is one of the few Bollywood actors who spoke openly about her battle with depression in 2015. Talking about the low points in her life, Deepika said, “A broken relationship and depression.”
She added that it took her a lot of time get over that low phase. “Well, time and a lot of work on myself helped me overcome it. It came with an amazing support system, my friends and family. My friends and family keep me grounded. They keep me rooted. They anchor me. Also, today my work is everything. My work is me. I have created it. I am responsible for my success and failure. No one else can take that away from me. That’s on what I have focussed all my energies and efforts. It’s my baby,” added the 31-year-old actor.
