Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone uproar
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone talked at length about their relationship and marriage at the show. Deepika revealed she was casually dating Ranveer. She said, “I wanted to be single for a while because I had come from difficult relationships. I was going through a phase where I said 'I just don't want to be attached, don't want to be committed'. And I had fun! And then he comes along, so I didn't commit, until he proposed to me. There was no 'commitment as such. Even if we were technically allowed to see other people, we would just keep coming back to each other.”
Later in the episode, Deepika asked Ranveer who were her suitors. A seemingly annoyed Ranveer said, “Abhi toh tumne bola I was seeing other people but I would go back to him. Tumko ab yaad nahi aa raha hai (Just a few minutes ago you said you were seeing other people and now you can't remember)?” “I can’t remember the people,” Deepika responded. “I remember very clearly,” Ranveer said in a stern voice.
Besides this, the show also grabbed attention when Ranveer narrated how he met Deepika. Internet accused him of "repurposing" his own story about meeting ex-girlfriend Anushka Sharma for Deepika. Deepika and Ranveer shared their wedding video in the episode for the first time.
