Deepika's mother tongue is Konkani- a language spoken in western India and parts of south India. Deepika was one of the main guests at the event and videos show Ranveer joining his wife on stage at the event. Ranveer impressed the audience, comprising people mostly from the community, with his knowledge of the Konkani language. What's more the actor also revealed the reason why he has learnt the language. "I am in a position where I can understand all of Konkani seamlessly but there is a reason behind this, it’s because when we do have children I don’t want their mother to speak to them in Konkani about me without me understanding."

Deepika laughed and corroborated Ranveer's claim and said, "He comes up to me one day and says 'You know baby, I want to learn Konkani' and I fell for it that day and said that's really sweet. I hope I start learning Sindhi. He doesn't know Sindhi and can't go to a Sindhi convention. And then it came out in conversation over a period of time that it wasn't about him wanting to learn Konkani it was about I don't turn the children against him."
