Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone spoke about films, their equation and the #MeToo movement at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2018. And, the duo addressed the elephant in the room. “It takes a lot of courage to come out and speak about harassment, but if it has actually happened, it is wrong and I condemn it,” said the Padmaavat actor, Ranveer Singh. While Deepika Padukone said, “The #MeToo movement isn’t just about gender, it’s about right versus wrong.”
Ranveer spoke about how Deepika is a disciplinarian with a ‘sports person discipline’ and how she picked his outfit for the day, asking him to refrain from wearing anything outlandish.
While they didn’t spill the beans on their wedding, they didn’t deny it either. Deepika said that they would let the world know about their wedding.
The charismatic pair even shook a leg to Khalibali.
When they were asked, “When is the wedding?”, Ranveer took the first plunge to address the question, and said in his inimitable style: “When, where, you are reading that everyday in the news. My sherwani’s colour, the wedding itinerary, the gifts that guests are going to give… Everything is decided. So you know all about it. Our very enthusiastic friends in the media are not holding back and yeah, it’s all out there. But when there is something, you all will be the first to know.”
Just when he dodged the query, Deepika was asked in a straightforward way: “Was there a November wedding which has now been pushed to early next year?” Deepika, who looked resplendent in a sari, said: “There were many November weddings… By the way, we have as per the media, been married several times.”
Ranveer added, “What all has not happened in our lives. We have been engaged multiple times, and this has been written about with such details that I find it very fascinating… Such creative writing that someone can write a script.”
Later, in the discussion, the two, who have worked together in films like Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat, were asked what would be the things they would like to change in each other.
While Deepika pointed out Ranveer’s erratic food and sleep habits, Ranveer said he would not like to change anything about her. But as Deepika deduced, they are both “poles apart”.
