Ranveer Singh reveals he connected with Deepika Padukone over similar experiences
In an interview with Esquire Singapore, Ranveer Singh talked about the people around him who keep him grounded. He said that he has a close-knit circle, which includes his family and friends. He further added that Deepika is also grounded, and that her family stays away from the limelight. “They’re like, as you said, a very simple middle-class to upper middle-class family, and they’re centred and grounded people,” he shared. He further added that just like him, Deepika Padukone has also come ‘from the outside’ and doesn’t belong to a family of actors. They both went through similar struggles and experiences, and thus connected over it.
“She’s also had to work her way up in the entertainment business. She’s that classic story of packing a suitcase and coming to the big, bad city. We’ve both connected over the rejections, the humiliations, the struggle, the reliance on one’s supportive family, etc,” he said. Ranveer added that his support system of friends and family is a huge reason why he is so grounded.
