India thinks of Bollywood when it thinks of romance. From songs to those special moments, we have a film equivalent for it all. On-screen romantic couples give us larger-than-life expectations as we watch their chemistry in rose-tinted glasses. And often refuse to believe that the cackling electricity they create was only for the camera. Sometimes these real life couples cross paths in real life and it’s every movie fan’s dream come true.
The romance and marriage of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone holds that special place in the hearts of Bollywood fans. On Tuesday, on the occasion of Ranveer Singh’s birthday, we recap his love affair with Deepika Padukone. As Deepika said, she fell in love with Ranveer when they were filming for Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela. For Ranveer, however, it was “love at first sight”.
Even before Ram-Leela, Ranveer-Deepika first met at the Zee Cine Awards in Macau. Once, when Ranveer was asked about his first encounter with Deepika, he said: “The first time I saw her I almost fell flat.” He also recalled that Deepika was wearing a silver dress that day. One fan asked Ranveer on Twitter, “How can you remember something that happened so long ago, so well?” and Ranveer replied, “How can we forget this sight?”
In an interview, Deepika explained how Ranveer started flirting with her when they met at Yash Raj Studios. She said: “I was at Yash Raj and he was there and he was flirting like nobody’s business and he was dating someone else at this point and I was smiling at myself and said : “You are flirting with me”. “
Deepika-Ranveer’s chemistry on the sets of Ram-Leela, which was their first movie together, made everyone believe they were a couple. Ang Laga De’s choreographer Terence Lewis confirmed this in an interview in which he said: “They were dating. It was very clear. “
Ram-Leela was released in November 2013. The same year, Deepika Padukone revealed that she wanted a big family. Deepika said in a conversation with journalist Rajeev Masand: “If I hadn’t been an actor, I don’t know what I would have done. But I hope with some children around. Three little kids, rushing over. I hope you will work hard enough to take them on the set. Have a happy family. And at the same time, I still do what I do.
After Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Ranveer made an appearance in Deepika’s film Finding Fanny where he played the role of Deepika’s husband.
Deepika and Ranveer got engaged four years before their wedding. During an interview with Filmfare, Deepika shared that she and Ranveer got engaged four years before their wedding. She said: “We got engaged four years ago. Nobody knows. We got engaged four years ago. Only his parents and my parents and our respective sisters knew about it.
A year before they were married, rumors were circulating that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh had separated. Canceling the reports, Deepika had said, “He (Ranveer) is someone who has always been and always will be an extremely important part of my life. It will never change.
Almost after five years of dating, Deepika and Ranveer got married in Italy in 2018. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh got married in a private at Villa del Balbianello on Lake Como, Italy.
After the wedding, Deepika revealed her fondest memory of the ceremony. “Everything was perfect. Once the ceremony was over, there was a boat to take Ranveer and me back to the hotel from the venue. The sun was setting… it was the first time after our wedding that we were alone. listened to our favorite song at full volume and literally drove until sunset, ”said Deepika.
She also added, “There are so many memorable moments. My mom is doing kanyadaan. Also that moment on November 13, when I was doing my mehendi and the sun came out. Ranveer and I have a connection with the sun, we love the sun Everything was perfect Not a bag was lost, no one missed a flight, everything was in place.
After their wedding, Ranveer told Filmfare, “I’ve been seriously thinking about marriage for almost three years now. I was just waiting, I told him the minute you say it, we will, ”he said. “I’ve been ready for a while. I was just waiting for Deepika to be ready. It would happen whenever she decided. I was totally ready and eager to go.
“I knew too well that this was the woman I was going to marry. It was the woman who would become the mother of my children, “he added.
Deepika has already been asked why she hasn’t opted for a home relationship with Ranveer. “If we had started living together sooner, what would we find out later? This is what this year has been: living together and discovering each other. I like to say that we made the best decision of our life. I know people are cynical about marriage, but it hasn’t been our experience. We believe in the institution and we appreciate every moment of it, ”said Deepika in her interview with Harper’s Bazaar US.
Deepika also mentioned that she and Ranveer had “many temptations” to move away from the traditional configuration of being a couple. Stating how Ranveer intertwined with her thoughts and beliefs, she shared, “Ranveer has always been okay with everything. He always said, “Anything that makes you happy makes me happy. But for me, it’s about wanting to do everything at the right time. This is how I saw my parents do it, so I didn’t know any other way.
