IBNS: Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone and popular actor Ranveer Singh, a power couple of tinseltown, were the guests at the inaugural episode of the eighth season of filmmaker Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee With Karan’.

The episode has created ripples on social media primarily because of Deepika-Ranveer’s wedding video and how the two slipped into a committed relationship.

In the course of the episode, Deepika revealed she was in an open relationship with Ranveer until the latter proposed to her in 2015.

Deepika told Karan, “I had come out of a couple of difficult relationships. I was going through this phase where I just wanted not to be attached or committed… He (Ranveer Singh) comes along. I didn’t commit till he proposed to me. There was no real commitment as such. Even if we were technically allowed to see other people, we would keep coming back to each other.

“So I did meet other people but I wasn’t interested or excited by anyone else that I was seeing and in my mind, I was committed to him. So I would meet other people but in the back of my head, ‘I am going back to him’.”

Following the revelation, Deepika, who was in a relationship with Ranbir Kapoor in the past, was trolled by a section of netizens who accused her of double standards.

However, the leading Bollywood lady received ample support from the other half of social media.

Deepika and Ranveer, who featured together onscreen for the first time in ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, got married at Lake Como in Italy in 2018 at a private ceremony away from media glares.

Among other films where the two featured together were ‘Bajirao Mastani’, ‘Padmaavat, ’83’.
