Actor Deepika Padukone has made a stunning feature on the cover of yet another magazine this month. She will be the cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar US, which has called her ‘the woman who became one of the world’s biggest stars while you were sleeping.’
In her interview to the magazine, Deepika at length opened up about becoming a Bollywood star, dealing with depression and also marrying Ranveer Singh. The couple got married in November last year and are soon to celebrate their first anniversary. When asked about why the couple decided not to live together before getting married, Deepika said that it was important to her.
“There was a lot of temptation to move away from the tradition, especially for the two of us, who are constantly travelling, but it was important to me,” she said. “Ranveer has always been okay with whatever. He’s always said, ‘Whatever makes you happy makes me happy.’ But for me, it’s about wanting to do everything at the right time. It’s how I saw my parents do it, so I didn’t know any other way,” she said.
“If we had started living together earlier, then what would we be discovering later on? That’s what this year has been - living together and discovering each other. I like to say we made the best decision of our lives. I know people are cynical about marriage, but that hasn’t been our experience. We believe in the institution, and we’re enjoying every bit of it,” she added.
