Ranveer Singh On Spending Lockdown With Wife Deepika Padukone: ‘It’s Given Time To Re-Discover Each Other In A Different Way’
After dating each other for almost 6 years, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh decided to take the plunge in 2018. Following Konkani and Sindhi traditions, the adorable duo tied the knot on November 14 and 15, 2018 respectively at Lake Como, Italy. Their wedding was a close-knit affair which saw their close buddies and family in attendance. Later, the couple hosted a lavish reception for their Bollywood friends. Deepika and Ranveer are currently making the utmost use of quarantine in lockdown due to Coronavirus.

During the latest interview with IANS, when the Gully Boy actor was asked about spending lockdown with wife and actress, he said that the lockdown is giving them time to re-discover and bond with each other in a different way. He said, “In a way, this lockdown period has been well-timed for me. I get this time to introspect, to focus on myself. As actors you say you are the player and you are the instrument - this body that we have, this mortal vessel that we have - we are the players and this is our instrument. So, to able to focus on myself, to be able to get time with my wife has been really good. After we got married, it was crazy busy for both of us. So it’s given time to re-discover each other in a different way, bond with each other.”

When he was asked about connecting with his followers virtually, like his colleagues, he said, “You know what the world is facing, this global crisis, that it really weighs down on you. So, I was going through my own process to - wrapping my head around it in a way that it has an effect on you emotionally, mentally. I don’t think I was prepared to engage anyone or anything in public.”

Sharing his thoughts on COVID-19 he said, “In the first 2 weeks, it felt like something, then in the first month, then month and a half and now it’s been 2 months. So, I have been going through various phases. Every time you wake up in the morning and read the news, read what is happening and it’s a very grim scenario. It’s disturbing, it’s actually devastating to witness what is happening in this unprecedented pandemic to all our brothers and sisters not just in our country but across the world.” (ALSO READ: Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh Dance Like No One’s Watching; Singh Steals A Chance To Rap At Friend’s Sangeet Ceremony)

He went on to say that his life before the lockdown was moving at a very frenetic, at a very hectic pace. He said that he felt he was a hamster on a wheel especially after Padmaavat, Simmba, Gully Boy. “My workload in the past year, year and a half increased to a level where I was teetering to a level of burnout. I have lived this period being under the radar, off the grid as they say.”


Since the actor is staying home, he’s making sure that he is using this time in an as positive way as possible. He’s trying to be positive and optimistic. He also said he’s trying to find the silver lining, trying to see the brighter side of things as grim a scenario that it is. He concluded saying that he has used this time to kind of hibernate and experience the joy of doing nothing. “There is a charm to that as well.”
