Deepika-Ranveer engagement in February next year

Even as Ranbir Kapoor is evading the question of his marriage with live-in partner Katrina Kaif, his former girlfriend Deepika Padukone and her alleged beau Ranveer Singh seems to have decided to settle down.

Speculations are rife that the rumoured couple would be getting engaged in February next year. It is being heard that the lovebirds have got approval from their respective families and will make their relationship official early 2016.

Although neither of the actors has come clear about their relationship, their off-screen chemistry is evident and shows ample signs of being in a romantic affair.

At the recently held IIFA Awards hosted by Ranveer and Arjun Kapoor, the former had gone down on his knee with a heart-shaped balloon when his lady love Deepika came on the stage to receive her award for ‘Woman of The Year’. While returning from the event, they were also seen together at the airport holding hand-in-hand.

The ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ star had also flown down to Bangaluru to attend ace shuttler and Deepika’s father Prakash Padukone’s birthday, before leaving for Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur for the IIFA Awards gala.

Ranveer had earlier remarked that he is “non-commital and does not believe in the institution of marriage and also explained that he did not plan to get married for ten years from now.” However, recently the actor said the opposite. “I’ll turn 30 in July and I have a different take on marriage, family and relationships,” he said and added that some experiences in the past three have changed his outlook.

“Previously, there were too many divorces happening among the people I know. So I was sceptical of getting married. Now, I want to just settle down and be a family man,” the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ star added.

Deepika and Ranveer who scorched the silver screen with their crackling chemistry in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’ will be seen once again in the director’s historical drama film ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
