Even though Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh never admitted to being in a relationship, theirs was touted as one of the most strong and stable relationships in Bollywood. But, just like any other two people in love, this power couple too had their own share of hiccups. The six-year long relationship, that has now cumulated into a beautiful marriage began as casual dating. In an interview, the new bride, Deepika revealed how her past relationships had exhausted her, which is why she just wanted to date Ranveer casually.
She said, “It was not about him. It was about whether I was ready to commit to a relationship. Because I’d been in several relationships before and many times my trust was broken. When I met Ranveer, I was exhausted. I had been constantly in and out of relationships. I just wanted to be alone for some time. I’ve never casually dated anyone. I’ve been in relationships since I was 13. Now that I’m married I can say this. Whether it was one year, two years or three years, they were always proper relationships. It was always if you like someone you give it your hundred per cent.”
“So when this relationship, which I was in, ended in 2012, I was like 'I’m done.' I wanted to try out this concept of casual dating. I just did not want to be answerable to anyone. When Ranveer and I met in 2012, I told him I realise there’s a connection between us. I really like you but I want to keep it open. I don’t want to commit. If I get attracted to different people I’m going to do my thing. But nothing happened. I couldn’t get myself to do any of that. At the same time, I did not emotionally invest in this relationship,” Deepika added.
We totally relate to what DP is saying, and we're super glad that it all worked out in the end!
