The Coronavirus pandemic led to a worldwide lockdown and people were restricted inside their homes. While it affected a lot of business, celebrity couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were not complaining, as they got to spend a lot of time together.
When asked if the lockdown turned a blessing in disguise for her as she got to spend the maximum amount of time with husband, Ranveer after their marriage? “Absolutely. We were certainly not complaining (smiles)” she said.
“It (lockdown) has, of course, been a difficult time for a lot of people. And that’s why, the one thing that I absolutely feel, this year, is gratitude. Just to be able to be at home with each other, and being safe is a blessing. Thank God, we (she and Ranveer) didn’t get locked down without each other, which happened to quite a few people. So, what more can we ask for,” Deepika told Hindustan Times.
The actress also talked about completing 13 years in the Bollywood industry as she said that she does not feel like it’s 13 years but when she saw the messages and social media, she realised it had indeed been a long time.
“I do feel that it’s been an incredible journey with lots of learnings, as well as ups-and-downs. But at the end of the day, if I were to look back, there is only feeling of gratitude,” she says.
After staying indoors for a long time, Deepika has started work on Shakun Batra’s next. Speaking of working amid the pandemic, in Goa followed by schedules in Mumbai, she says “Honestly, there was a lot of enthusiasm, and a little bit of nervousness too.”
Deepika will next be seen in Kabir Khan’s ‘83, co-starring her husband, Ranveer Singh.
