One of the most anticipated weddings of the year was of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The couple, who were together for six years, had the fairytale wedding of their dreams at Lake Como in Italy. The couple got hitched following Konkani rituals on November 14 at Lake Como in Italy. Their Konkani style wedding was followed by Anand Karaj ceremony on November 15. Since then, it has been a month filled with parties and receptions for friends and family. Now, Deepika Padukone has opened up about her relationship and marriage on the December issue of GQ India.
Deepika is the cover star of GQ India magazine in which she opened up about her bachelorette and how Ranveer Singh and gang crashed. “The bachelors crashed my bachelorette! Eventually, it became one big party with all our friends. We were in Orlando for a week and the aim was to get on the scariest roller coasters, to feel that rush of adrenaline like you’re flying. We went on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit [at Universal Studios], which Ellen DeGeneres posted about a while back. And the VR Avatar rides [at Disney’s Animal Kingdom], for which we had to stand in line for two-and-a-half to three hours, were phenomenal,” she said.
Deepika further talked about her relationship with Ranveer Singh that spans over six years. She said, “With Ranveer and me, our relationship rests on the fact that we’re extremely liberal with each other, extremely supportive of each other’s professional careers and know each other’s personal needs. I think when we started dating six years ago, professionally, we were both in very different places. My career took off slightly before his, but throughout our relationship, right from 2013 – even when I was shooting for [Goliyon Ki Rasleela] Ram-Leela and Chennai Express – nothing has changed.”
During an interview, Ranveer admitted that he was ready to tie the knot with Deepika three years ago. Speaking about why now was the right now to get hitched, Deepika said, “I think you just know when you want to spend the rest of your life with that one person – and he’s everything rolled into one man. He’s my best friend, playmate, companion and confidant. I can be silly in front of him, I can be stupid in front of him, I can be sick in front of him, I can be whatever I want to be.”
Deepika also gave an insight into Ranveer Singh and how he is off camera. “He is vulnerable, extremely emotional, very intelligent; childlike at times. That’s not to say that his irrepressible energy isn’t him, it’s very him. He’s a real people’s person, but there’s a quiet side to him too. Emotionally, I think I’m the more intuitive one. I’d say IQ is more him. But at the same time, he’s not all like, “I’m a man, I can’t show my emotions.” He’s sensitive, and so am I, and it makes it easier to share a life with someone who understands that,” she said.
The Padmaavat actress, who dated Ranveer Singh for six years, said that she did not want to have a live-in relationship to make up her mind on marriage. “Well, I’ve been running a home since I was 18, so I don’t think much is going to change in that sense. But of course, we’ll go through all the changes that happen when two people start living together. I was clear right from the start that I didn’t want to have a live-in relationship to figure out if I wanted to marry someone or not. Now [I’m expecting] everything that comes with being a newly-wed: sharing space, you know, or the bills, whatever it takes for two people to live a life together,” she added.
