Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh Are Too Focused On Their Careers To Think About Kids
Deepika Padukone opened up on her plans of having kids with husband Ranveer Singh, to which she said that the two of them are too busy to think about it right now
Deepika Padukone is undoubtedly one of the finest actresses in Bollywood right now. She started her career in 2007 with Om Shanti Om and then went on to star in several hit films such as Love Aaj Kal, Housefull, Cocktail, Piku and many others. She has worked with some of the big guns of Bollywood and in 2013, she also worked opposite Ranveer Singh in Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela, which was helmed by ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It was on the sets of the film that Deepika and Ranveer fell in love. The couple went on to work in two more films with Sanjay, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. And putting all rumours to rest, the two finally tied the knot late last year in an intimate ceremony in Italy.
But much like any other South Asian couple, people are always speculating when they would plan to have a baby. Ever since their marriage, Deepika and Ranveer have also been a target of such questions. In a recent interview, Deepika finally opened up on the couple's plans on having kids. She said, "I think it’s sad that society kind of puts itself and people in this rut that, 'Okay, you are dating for so long tau shaadi kab hogi? Shaadi ke baad bacche and then grandchildren?'."
Expressing disappointment over the constant intrusion, the actress continued, "It’s almost like it’s the said expectation. I’m not surprised by the rumours, we’re not surprised by it at all. Do we intend on having children? Of course we do, we both love kids. But do we intend on having children anytime soon? Absolutely not! We’re too selfishly, at this point, focused on our careers and I don’t think it would be fair to have kids at this point . We’re not even thinking about kids." On the work front, Deepika and Ranveer have got a number of films lined up. Deepika just finished filming Chhapaak and '83, in which she will be seen sharing screen space with Ranveer.
