Full Story: Here’s how Deepika fell in love with Ranbir Kapoor


Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor’s love story is an old chapter now as both Ranbir and Deepika have moved on in life and also found a new life partner. As their next film ‘Tamasha’ is about to see the light of the day, their past love story refreshes.

Deepika Padukone in an interview reveals how and when she fell in love with Ranbir, “We met while we were shooting for our respective debut films (Om Shanti Om and Saawariya). At that point of time it was very different because he hadn’t been in the limelight at all. It was a completely new thing for him whereas I was used to it, having been a model.

“We were both very involved with our films then. So we didn’t really get too much time to spend with each other. We went our separate ways after our movies were released and we just disconnected. Then we got together again when we were doing Siddharth’s (Anand, director) movie (Yash Raj Films). We were together for a month and that’s when it started”.

Deepika once said falling in love is a wonderful feeling, “It’s a fantastic feeling. He is very caring. I am glad that I am finally in a relationship where my man loves me so much and for what I am. Also, when we met again, so much had already happened in our respective lives. We came from two different spaces. But we connected. The fact that both our families are also happy about this relationship makes it easier”.

Deepika also said that she gets well with Ranbir’s parents as well, “They are wonderful. His mum (Neetu Kapoor) is very sweet. Kapoors are loving people. They are all foodies. It’s another thing common between us. He loves to see me eating the way I do, because the other women he knows are always picking on ghas phoos”, the ‘Ram Leela’ actress quips.

After 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' and 'Bachna Ae Haseeno', 'Tamasha' is Ranbir and Deepika's third film together.
