Meanwhile, during the same conclave, Deepika Padukone opened up about her relationship status with then-boyfriend and now-husband Ranveer Singh. She had said at the event, “I’m at a stage when I don’t want to rush into anything. For a young girl, I should have the option of knowing a person and to be sure about the person you land up with. I understand the scrutiny of people, wanting to know about us.”
While speaking about success, she said, “I don’t think success or winning has a particular formula. Success comes from believing in yourself and not being someone you are expected to be.”
