The big news of the day is that Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor are finally engaged! The beautiful newcomer chatted exclusively to HT City yesterday via telephone from Bangkok, confirming that she and Ranbir are engaged to be married.
Deepika confessed that Ranbir proposed to her at the time of their debut releases in November last year. “And I happily said yes.”
“Our parents are happy with our relationship.”
It will only be a coincidence that even Ranbir’s parents, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, met in 1975 on a film set and were married five years later. Deepika and Ranbir too met during the releases of their debut movies, Om Shanti Om and Saawariya.
While Om Shanti Om made Deepika a house-hold name overnight, Ranbir too started on a fine note in the industry, though his film bombed on the box office.
“We are on the threshold of our careers and have a long way to go,” she says, but in five years she hopes to be “Mrs Kapoor and the leading lady of Bollywood.”
Now, the only question that remains is, when will they tie the knot?
