Ranveer Singh was at his gracious best at the recently held Star Screen awards function in Mumbai,and made an open declaration of gratitude and love for his wife, Deepika Padukone. Ranveer’s speech brought tears to Deepika’s eyes.

He said: “In the film, may be I didn’t get my queen but in real life, I have got my queen. Baby, I love you. In the past six years, if I have achieved anything, it is because you have kept me grounded and centred. So thank you for everything and I love you.”


Ranveer received the best actor award for Padmaavat.

If one has ever noticed, Ranveer’s tagline on his social media pages reads ‘living the dream’. Quite naturally, he understands the perils of letting stardom ruin is life and helping him in the process has been Deepika.

Which brings us to the actor--perhaps sometime after the release of the film Piku. She had won an award for the role in the said film. At an awards function, she had read a letter given to her sister and her by their father, the legendary shuttler, Prakash Padukone. It had the most important life lessons a father could have given to his children. It advised them to give their 100% in whatever they did, to do so with passion and always be humble in life.


As Deepika read, tears rolled down her cheeks and she did little to hold them back. It was time to do so for husband Ranveer too.

It is adorable how the two never fail to thank each other. Speaking at a recent function in Mumbai, Ranveer had said that post his marriage to Deepika, he was feeling like a superhero and recommended marriage to all. Similarly, at the recently held Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice awards, Deepika addressed herself as the wife of Ranveer Singh Padukone.

These are interesting times when either of the spouses is willing to make and break rules at will.
