Actor Ranveer Singh is a people's person with "irrepressible energy", but there's a quiet side to his persona as well, says his actress wife Deepika Padukone after their "magical" wedding celebrations.

In her first interview post their wedding, Deepika spoke to GQ magazine about the month gone by, Ranveer, her wedding looks and what the future holds for her.

Deepika is one of the few people in the world that gets to see Ranveer without the cameras, the hyperbole and the flamboyance. What is he like?

"He is vulnerable, extremely emotional, very intelligent; childlike at times. That's not to say that his irrepressible energy isn't him, it's very him. He's a real people's person, but there's a quiet side to him too," Deepika said, according to excerpts shared with IANS.

"Emotionally, I think I'm the more intuitive one. I'd say IQ is more him. But at the same time, he's not all like, 'I'm a man, I can't show my emotions.' He is sensitive, and so am I, and it makes it easier to share a life with someone who understands that," she added.

Deepika and Ranveer kept the paparazzi waiting by keeping their wedding looks a secret until they shared it themselves on social media from their exotic venue, Lake Como, Italy.

"I think the pictures we shared summed up the wedding - it was magical to have just family and friends there who mean something to you, who don't really care about who you are professionally, but are there because they love you for who you are as a person," Deepika said of the Lake Como festivities, which included only about 40 of their guests.

While the actress sported a Sabyasachi Mukherjee creation for her north Indian style wedding, for GQ's December cover, she has gone all bold.

"I'm aware of culture, tradition, all that… I also understand what it means to be my own person. Of course, it's exciting to take your relationship to the next level, but at no point as a woman should you forget your sense of individuality. It's important to remain authentic and stay true to who you are. The idea is not to lose yourself in the process (of marriage)," said the actress, who has had a whirlwind 2018.

She kicked things off with a raging controversy around "Padmaavat", a Time 100 name-check, followed by red carpet appearances at the Met Gala and Cannes, and ended the year by marrying Ranveer, whom she had been dating for six years.

What does 2019 look like for her?

"It's going to be pretty challenging because I'll be producing and acting in Meghna Gulzar's next ­film (about acid victims). For the ­first time, I'll also be taking decisions with my director -- we would've started work before I took off for the wedding, and will get back to it now. Also, setting up home," she said.


Emotional and deepika? Lol she married RS for settlement sake...she spent years hoping RK would get back just to be Mrs kapoor ! She was still into RK till tamasha when she was in a relationship with RS...she is clever and calculative. If she was emotional she would never skip guys after every year ....I'm worried for RS...hope deepika gives him more respect!

I feel you but they all have moved on. Lets accept it. Growing up i was reading so many cute stories and found rk dp a cute couple. But i also love srk kajol onscreen and i was very young and naive to believe they will be together. Reality is not always cute. RK DP looked all love and cute on screen they are not meant to be together ever.

LOL of course he is a “real people’s person” .. have you seen what he says in interviews? It’s always so what people “want” to hear rather than him actually speaking his mind ... sometimes he seems too good to be true

All the best, both of you be faithful to each other, don't end up being like other married stars like Akshay,Ajay,Aamir,srk

You guys are so lucky to find each other! As Anu said, "Rab ne bana de jodi". Stay happy and blessed!

he is super sharp. im surprised ppl dont notice it behind all the jokes and bluster. you dont get to the top of your game in such a competitive industry by being a joker.

Every time she talks about him, she seems to be justifying to herself and world why she chose Ranveer Singh.

Ranveer is clearly very intelligent, but im not sure she is the more emotionally intelligent one. To be as good of an actor as he is, one has to have a keen emotional IQ and be very empathetic as to understand the characters and embody them. That is something DP has not shown she is able to do-her acting is superficially fine but doesn't hit that deep cord that his does. I think she has amazing looks and an introverted personality, but introverted does not necessarily mean more emotionally intelligent. She's just probably more reluctant to trust and interact than he is, but I think hes better able to separate superficial relationships from genuine ones...hes just more...complex. Just watching them and listening to what they say, this is evident.

Deepika repeating the same quote over and over again. For the hundredth time I guess.

I was wondering where Ive heard that before from Deepu. Almost every time.

"Because they love you for who you are as a person" so right and no doubt PC too had only her very close friends and family only at the wedding. Thats how you celebrate the most important day in your life.

I love her.....

Best wishes to Deepika and Ranveer. Wonderful couple
