Bollywood’s hottest newlyweds Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are now married for two months. There have been rumors doing the round regarding whether Deepika Padukone is going to change her surname. Some people even think that it is Ranveer who would alter his surname.
In a recent interview, Deepika put a full-stop to all these rumours.
She said, “It’s not true. In fact, after that interview I realised that it’s a conversation Ranveer and I’ve never even had. So, we haven’t been like, ‘oh, do you think you should change your surname?’ That [chat about it in an interview] was, of course, a candid joke of sorts. It has never crossed either of our minds. When I was asked about it, I was like, ‘oh, we haven’t even thought about it’. Maybe because it’s not important. Also, I’ve worked extremely hard to create my own identity and so has he. So, my question is, ‘why would he have to do that?’ I think what people see of us is a very minuscule part of our entire being and existence. But at the core of it, we are very alike.”
Deepika even touched base on her professional life.
When she was asked if the heavy duty rolls take a toll on her, she said, “Absolutely! I think that’s why even though there was so much to celebrate post the release of Padmaavat, I think somewhere, as human being, I felt I had to recharge emotionally (smiles). I needed to live life a bit. And that’s exactly what I did last year — so I just sort of replenished, touched base with normal things and went about things in an organic manner.”
On asking whether she has cracked the code to make her life easier, she said, “Strangely, there is no science, proven formula or set pattern to it. With every new film or character, you discover it and then, things unfold on their own. I don’t think you can pre-plan such things. You kind of know what you want to do with a character and so, you can prep a lot but until one goes on the sets and actually experience it, you don’t get the hang of it,”
