Deepika Padukone Talked Her Heart Out In This Exclusive Interview With GQ Magazine

6:52 pm 4 Dec, 2018


Deepika and Ranveer are married and we have seen the beautiful pictures from their destination wedding, their airport looks, and “twinning” in Sabyasachi all over Instagram. Their movements on social media were almost in real time, as if we were there with them. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are in Mumbai now. Deepika’s first interview after the wedding is out, let’s read what she has to say.

The Lake Como wedding has given pictures which are amazing, and now Deepika is rocking GQ cover for Dec 2018 issue. She recently gave the interview and talked about many things.




Deepika was recently on the GQ cover, being ‘fearless and fabulous’.



Deepika had a great grand wedding:

“I think the pictures we shared [on social media] summed up the wedding – it was magical to have just family and friends there who mean something to you, who don’t really care about who you are professionally, but are there because they love you for who you are as a person. People who’ve seen you grow, been part of your journey and are genuinely happy for you.”


Deepika’s reaction on the year’s happening and how does she see the changes:

“I’m aware of culture, tradition, all that… I also understand what it means to be my own person. Of course, it’s exciting to take your relationship to the next level, but at no point as a woman should you forget your sense of individuality. It’s important to remain authentic and stay true to who you are. The idea is not to lose yourself in the process [of marriage].”




Deepika thinks that Ranveer is a great individual:

“With Ranveer and me, our relationship rests on the fact that we’re extremely liberal with each other, extremely supportive of each other’s professional careers and know each other’s personal needs. I think when we started dating six years ago, professionally, we were both in very different places. My career took off slightly before his, but throughout our relationship, right from 2013 – even when I was shooting for [Goliyon Ki RasleelaRam-Leelaand Chennai Express – nothing has changed.”


Deepika talked about her bachelorette, which was not shown in any pictures:

“The bachelors crashed my bachelorette! Eventually, it became one big party with all our friends. We were in Orlando for a week and the aim was to get on the scariest roller coasters, to feel that rush of adrenaline, like you’re flying. We went on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit [at Universal Studios], which Ellen DeGeneres posted about a while back. And the VR Avatar rides [at Disney’s Animal Kingdom], for which we had to stand in line for two-and-a-half to three hours, were phenomenal.”


Deepika revealed why it was the best time to get married:

“I think you just know when you want to spend the rest of your life with that one person – and he’s everything rolled into one man. He’s my best friend, playmate, companion and confidant. I can be silly in front of him, I can be stupid in front of him, I can be sick in front of him, I can be whatever I want to be.”




On will anything change for her after marriage, she said:

“Well, I’ve been running a home since I was 18, so I don’t think much is going to change in that sense. But of course, we’ll go through all the changes that happen when two people start living together. I was clear right from the start that I didn’t want to have a live-in relationship to figure out if I wanted to marry someone or not. Now [I’m expecting] everything that comes with being a newly-wed: sharing space, you know, or the bills, whatever it takes for two people to live a life together.”


Deepika said that she talks to flowers in the morning:

“Unfortunately, I live in a tiny apartment, so I don’t have the luxury of gardening, but I do what I can on my deck area. I have a tulsi plant and some orchids, which can be a bit moody. I talk to them in the mornings, ask them how they are, supervise how they’re doing. But yeah, it’s more that feeling of joy of seeing something grow and blossom.”



Deepika also talked about mental health practices:

“Massages are very important, as is exercise, sleep and staying hydrated. All of these things sound basic, but they can still take a lot of effort. And they’re crucial.”


Deepika thinks the coming year will be more challenging:

It’s going to be pretty challenging because I’ll be producing and acting in Meghna Gulzar’s next film [about acid victims]. For the first time, I’ll also be making decisions with my director – we’d started work before I took off for the wedding, and will get back to it now. Also, setting up home.
