Deepika Padukone, who recently tied the knot with Ranveer Singh, has opened up about love and marriage.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Deepika shared that she realised that Ranveer “was the one over a period of time”. “I think it’s the small things that he did and the little things that he said that made me believe and feel more and more that he really is the person I want to spend my life with. The foundation of our relationship is solid friendship and I would think that for any successful relationship that is essential. So, it was over a period of time and there was no one definitive moment,” she said.
The actor also shared that their family and friends thought they would “be forever” when she kept travelling to and fro while shooting for “Finding Fanny” as Ranveer got dengue.
Speaking about her marriage, Deepika said, “It is one of the best things I have done in my life. I can’t explain what that feeling is but you feel whole, you feel complete and grounded.”
“I think soon after the ceremony was done. The minute we held hands it was different. It was not like holding my boyfriend’s hand; he’s your man for life. Almost, instantly it happened,” she added.
When asked about the proposal, Deepika said, “Somethings are very personal and we’ll leave it at that.”
On her wedding décor and preparations, the actor said, “I have always been someone who has followed my heart and gut and that’s all we did. As a girl you want a dream wedding but I was never specific about where it should be or how it should be. It’s just going with the flow and what I felt was pure and honest.”
Deepika continued, “The other thing that keeps us going is how honest we are with each other and I wanted that to come through in the wedding as well. That’s why we kept it small and intimate.”
Summarising the year 2018, Deepika said, “Magical. Absolutely magical. I can’t think of any other word to summarise every experience and emotion we have gone through in the past. It’s been truly magical.”
On completing 10 years in the film industry, the actor said, “It has been phenomenal. I don’t think I can look back and regret anything. Even a film that hasn’t done well, I don’t think there’s a single moment I regret.”
