Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh
Throwing light on unknown facts about the actress, the magazine quotes some of the closest people in Deepika's life. Decoding the career and the personal life of the actress, the magazine also highlights the journey of Deepika Padukone and mentions quotes of Ranveer Singh.
Ranveer Singh, who has known her for years now, remembers a girl who would once stretch herself to a limit that almost broke her. "She is immensely hardworking, but now she has learned to choose the job she does and balance them out," he says. "There was a point she was clocking in three shifts a day. She was promoting Chennai Express, then shooting scenes with me for Ram-Leela and then rehearsing for a song at night, till she could barely stand. When things are going for you and you have to take your foot off the pedal, it's not an easy decision to make. But she did that."
Within six months of this, Deepika came out with her experience of battling depression. This was at a point in her career where she was already way ahead of her peers and being hailed at the top of her game. But it didn't stop her from talking about an issue that, even today, is in dire need of de-stigmatization. "She isn't afraid of exposing her weaknesses. It took her a while, but she is someone who will ask for help if needed. It's a very humane quality, and that makes her real," says Ranveer Singh, who has known her through her toughest times.
"She runs her own show!" Ranveer Singh says, summing her up beautifully.
