Deepika Padukone reveals why she didn’t live with Ranveer before marriage


Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are happily married couple. They will complete one year of blissful marriage in November. Though the ‘Ram Leela’ co-star was in a courtship for three years before tying the knot, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone never thought to move in together to known each other better.

However, speaking to Harper’s Bazaar US magazine, Deepika opened up why she did not want to live with Ranveer Singh before marriage. “There was a lot of temptation to move away from the traditional, especially for the two of us, who are constantly travelling, but it was important to me,” she said. “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. It’s how I saw my parents do it, so I didn’t know any other way,” she shared.

She also added that not living together under one roof before marriage helped them explore each other better. “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,” she added.

She also spoke at length about battling depression. “I just couldn’t stop crying. [My mom] asked, ‘Is it your relationship? Is it your work?’ And I said, “No, no, no, none of those things.’ I just kept saying, ‘No, no, no. I don’t know. I don’t why I feel empty.” Her mother told her she needed help. “There was no conversation, there was no argument,” she said.

On the work front, the ‘Piku’ actress will be next seen in ‘Chhapaak’ and ‘83’.
