'Ranveer's Family is My Family in Mumbai': Deepika Padukone
The actress opens up about the comfortable relationship she shares with her Bajirao Mastani co-star and alleged boyfriend
Bollywood’s queen of the 100-crore club, Deepika Padukone couldn’t ask for a better place to be in her life. The actress’s climb to the top has been phenomenal, right for her initial days as a newbie in Bollywood when she was dating ex Ranbir Kapoor to securing the top spot among the current reigning actress and a successful love life with fellow actor Ranveer Singh.
Speaking about her relationship with her current beau in an interview with DNA, the actress says, “I am very, very close to his family. His family is my family in Mumbai.” She also adds, “I have said this before… I am very, very comfortable around him and I can just be myself in front of him. I can switch off and just be my true self with him. I remember a day after Bajirao Mastani released we were just sitting together and eating chocolates. As simple as that. Here the world is going crazy about Bajirao Mastani and Bajirao and Mastani are eating chocolates! That’s my relationship with him. I don’t like to label relationships explaining this or that. It is what it is and people can make whatever they want of it. I think what is important that we know where we stand with each other, in each other’s lives, what we mean to each other, what all we can do with each other, what all we can say to each other, how we can be in front of each other… That’s it.”
When asked about her relationship with ex Ranbir Kapoor and how their electrifying chemistry was possible, Dippy says, “You just have to forgive certain situations and moments in your life to be able to move on, if you genuinely want to be happy. I am someone who can’t hold on to negativity or hold on to grudges. I can’t do that. I might feel something at a certain point but I get tired after that. I don’t carry it with me. I forgive and forget very easily and that’s the only way to be happy and peaceful.”
