Ever since Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh tied the knots last year, fans have been eagerly waiting for the couple to become proud parents to a baby soon. However, Deepika Padukone has said that though they too would love to have babies of their own, now is not the time.
Deepika who has been a pioneer of sorts of mental health awareness in India and Bollywood has said that family plays a crucial role in helping a person overcome depression. And now, during her recent interaction with Hindustan Times, Deepika has opened up about starting her own family.
The Bajirao Mastani actress has been quoted saying, “I think it’s sad that society kind of puts itself and people in this rut that okay you are dating for so long toh shaadi kab hogi, shaadi ke baad bacche and then grandchildren. It’s almost like it’s the said expectation. I’m not surprised (by the rumours), we’re not surprised by it at all.”
She further said, “ Do we intent on having children? Of course, we do, we both love kids. But do we intend on having children anytime soon? Absolutely not! We’re too selfishly at this point focused on our careers and I don’t think it would be fair to have kids at this point. We’re not even thinking about kids.”
On the professional front, Deepika will next be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak which also features Vikrant Massay as the male lead. Apart from that, DP also has Kabir Khan’s ’83 alongside hubby Ranveer Singh in the making.
