MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone in an interview with a leading English daily opened up on her past relationship. Deepika got married to Ranveer Singh now but there was a time when she went through a lot of stress in her personal life, in a series of early relationships that included Ranbir Kapoor.
Deepika said that, "For me, sex is not just about physicality; there are emotions involved. I have never cheated or strayed when I'm in a relationship. If I'm going to be fooling around, why would I be in a relationship? It's better to be single and have fun. But not everyone thinks like that." Without mentioning anyone's name, she added: "Maybe that's why I've been hurt in the past. I was foolish enough to give him a second chance because he begged and pleaded, despite the fact that everyone around me said he was still straying. Then I actually caught him red-handed. It took me a while to get out. But having done that, nothing can make me go back. That ship has sailed."
Deepika further added that, "The first time he cheated on me, I thought there was something wrong with the relationship, or me. But when someone makes a habit of it, you know the problem lies with him. I give a lot in relationships, and don't really expect much in return. But, infidelity is the deal breaker. Once it comes in, respect goes away, trust goes away," she said, about a relationship gone wrong.
Deepika and Ranbir reportedly dated for two years before parting ways in 2009. Deepika and Ranveer tied the knot in November 2018. Ranbir is currently said to be dating actress Alia Bhatt, although the "Brahmastra" co-stars are yet to officially confirm the affair.
