Deepika Padukone Reveals Why She Didn’t Live With Ranveer Singh Before Marriage
Deepika Padukone shared that she is very old-school when it comes to things like marriage, adding that she thought living separately was the right thing to do
Deepika Padukone is one of the best actresses in Bollywood right now. The actress started her career back in 2007 with Om Shanti Om, starring opposite Shah Rukh Khan and has come a long way ever since. Throughout the span of her career, she's done numerous films, most of them churning big numbers at the box office. Deepika's personal life has also often been under the radar. Late last year, she tied the knot with beau Ranveer Singh and two seem to be having a very happy married life.
Deepika and Ranveer will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary next month and in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar US, the actress spoke about her marriage. She shared, “Ranveer has always been okay with whatever. He’s always said, ‘Whatever makes you happy makes me happy.’ But for me, it’s about wanting to do everything at the right time. If we had started living together earlier, then what would we be discovering later on? That’s what this year has been - living together and discovering each other. I like to say we made the best decision of our lives. I know people are cynical about marriage, but that hasn’t been our experience. We believe in the institution, and we’re enjoying every bit of it.”
The actress also shed light on her depression, adding that her mother was the first one who found out about it. Deepika said, “One day, I broke down in front of her. I just couldn’t stop crying. My mom asked me if it was my relationship or my work and I told her that it was none of those things. I just told her, ‘I don’t why I feel empty.’ Then she told me that I needed help. There was no conversation and there was no argument.” Now, Deepika is one of the biggest mental health advocates in India. On the work front, she is gearing up for the release of her next film Chhapaak and ’83 - in which she stars with her husband.
