Deepika Padukone is too busy for love
Speculation is rife that Deepika Padukone and her Ram Leela co-star Ranveer Singh are seeing each other. There have been reports of them spending a lot of time together on and off the sets of the film.
But Deepika brushes aside the rumour saying that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a perfectionist and they (Ranveer and she) are doing a lot of workshops together to prepare for their roles. “It’s weird that people are making more out of it. I guess when you are doing a love story, and you are seen spending time together, one would naturally assume that there’s something more to that,” she says, adding that currently she is completely focussed on work. “I am busy with three projects and I have no time for anything else,” she says, flashing her dimples.
The actress, however, is more forthcoming about her relationship with ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor, who is now her “perfect friend”. “Ranbir and I have always been good friends. It’s the media that assumed there would be awkwardness between us (after the break-up),” says Deepika, who is paired with him in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. “After Bachna Ae Haseeno, I felt incomplete. I thought we needed to do a full film with each other. Ayan (director Ayan Mukherji) knows us really well, and I couldn’t have asked for a better film for Ranbir and me to come together,” smiles Deepika.
She is also excited about Race 2, which will see her in an action mode. She’s especially proud of a major car chase sequence which has her at the wheel with Saif Ali Khan by her side. “Saif has to get out of the car in the middle of the scene for some reason, which I cannot reveal now. So, I was responsible for not only my life but someone else’s life too.
Besides being physically fit, I had to mentally also be all there,” reveals the leggy beauty. However, since she’s been an athlete, who digs into adventurous and sporty things, she didn’t need to prep much.
As for reports of her angling for a role opposite Salman Khan in his forthcoming film Kick, Deepika says that though she would love to work with the Dabangg star, currently she is concentrating on films that she is committed to. “My hands are full till June,” she clarifies.
Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection, to the simplest pleasure. An example of this range of meanings is that the love of a mother differs from the love of a spouse, which differs from the love of food. Most commonly, love refers to a feeling of strong attraction and emotional attachment.
Love is considered to be both positive and negative, with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another” and its vice representing human moral flaw, akin to vanity, selfishness, amour-propre, and egotism, as potentially leading people into a type of mania, obsessiveness or codependency. It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals. In its various forms, love acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts. Love has been postulated to be a function that keeps human beings together against menaces and to facilitate the continuation of the species.
