Her wedding to actor Ranveer Singh created headlines and dominated social media for weeks. And now Deepika Padukone has opened up for the first time about her relationship with Ranveer, the qualities that she likes of his, and why she never wanted to be in a live-in relationship with him. 

"I think you just know when you want to spend the rest of your life with that one person and he's everything rolled into one man. He’s my best friend, playmate, companion and confidant. I can be silly in front of him, I can be stupid in front of him, I can be sick in front of him, I can be whatever I want to be," said Deepika to a magazine in her first interview post marriage. 

Ranveer earlier had said that six months into the relationship he knew Deepika was the one but the actress took her time to get convinced about the wedding. 

The actress who has been living alone since she was 18 years old, said that managing a house was not new but sharing that space with someone else was something she was looking forward to. "I’ve been running a home since I was 18, so I don’t think much is going to change in that sense. But of course, we’ll go through all the changes that happen when two people start living together.” Deepika though was clear that a live-in relationship was not an option for her, “I was clear right from the start that I didn’t want to have a live-in relationship to figure out if I wanted to marry someone or not. Now [I’m expecting] everything that comes with being a newly-wed: sharing space, you know, or the bills, whatever it takes for two people to live a life together.”

Calling her relationship liberal, Deepika said, "With Ranveer and me, our relationship rests on the fact that we’re extremely liberal with each other, extremely supportive of each other’s professional careers and know each other’s personal needs. I think when we started dating six years ago, professionally, we were both in very different places. My career took off slightly before his, but throughout our relationship, right from 2013 – even when I was shooting for [Goliyon Ki Rasleela] Ram-Leela and Chennai Express – nothing has changed.”

The couple got married in Lake Como, Italy on 14th and 15th November. They later hosted three receptions in Mumbai and one in Bengaluru for friends, family and Bollywood. 

Ranveer will be next seen in Rohit Shetty's 'Simmba' and Deepika will soon start shooting for Meghna Gulzar's next which Deepika is producing as well.
