Enough has been said about Deepika Padukone’s dance moves and her chemistry with her co-star Ranveer Singh in Ram-Leela. The actors made it to the sets of The Front Row with Anupama Chopra (for the Diwali episode) when the film critic got them to talk about their alleged relationship. An exclusive excerpt:
Anupama: There is a lot of buzz and speculation around all this steam, all this passion. And you are fueling it by saying things like ‘I have lovaria…’ when you (Deepika) are not saying anything. What is going on?
Ranveer: That was a day after I got out of the hospital with dengue. I was on a lot of medication that day. I would advise any responsible professional to not give public interviews when you are on those many drugs that will make you rather loopy.
Anupama: Do you get mad when he does things like that?
Deepika: No, it’s amazing the way he is. He is so unique. And I think what I admire about him is he is so unapologetic about the way he is.
Anupama: Okay. So officially are you or are you not seeing each other?
Deepika: What (sic) you looking at me for? You gave that loopy interview.
Ranveer: I am the irresponsible one. Do you really want me answering this question?
Deepika: Yes, she is asking you.
Anupama: No, I am asking both of you. Your answer is no?
Anupama: And your answer is?
Deepika: I have always said no. I think it’s amazing that there is so much speculation about this alleged romance between the two of us… I appreciate that people see this chemistry between the two of us and eventually I think what is the most important, is that it translates onscreen and we have that going for us.
The Front Row with Anupama Chopra will air today on Star World at 8.30 pm
