Ranveer Singh with Deepika Padukone

--- Personal Quotes ---

"I am usually a fun loving person and I say most of the things in a jest. Sometimes I get in trouble,
but over a period of time, I think people now realise that most of the things I say are in jest. They
are used to it."

"My relationship with my father has gone through different phases but what's remained constant is
my bond with my mother. I am a mama's boy. My dad was deeply involved in work when I was a
child. Plus, my teenage years were full of distractions. I was into all kinds of badmashis. Surprisingly,
my work has brought me closer to dad. Now, I seek his advice on a lot of things. I have become
mature. My work is very demanding but I make sure I have some quality family time. I am so close
to my family that they know my whereabouts by default. When we talk, there are no barriers.
Nothing's hidden."

"When the doctors first told me that I had dengue, all I could say was: 'F***, why me?' I don't like
hospitals and I don't like needles. They are my least favourite part of the treatment process. As many
pricks as one has to deal with, one never really gets used to them."

"I am an amazing boyfriend…the best boyfriend ever. I am an awesome boyfriend. I haven’t always
been an awesome boyfriend. I have been an idiot, but I have learnt, matured, improved and become
very, very good."

"I love being in love. It's the best feeling in the world. I have never felt like this before."

"I feel it is love. Dekhiye mujhe ho gaya hai lovaria (Look, I've got Lovaria)."

"All my ex-girlfriends have been gifted one special t-shirt. Sometimes they return after we break-up,
sometimes they don’t. The most special was the light blue Super Mario t-shirt that I gifted a very
special girlfriend."

"I have felt like this in the past also, but it's a strong feeling this time. When you feel so strongly then
you can say I guess I am in love. I don't know what is love, but what I am feeling is quite strong and
cannot explain it.

"I want to (get married), but I am not ready. I need to have some financial stability, settle down in
my career and give a few blockbusters before I can shift my focus to building a family."

"I am fiercely loyal and over- possessive, but I am learning to control my being possessive. I have
become quite mature though not as much as I would like to be, but have still improved tremendously.
I can't hide my feelings and it takes a lot of effort to be closed about things I feel for."

"To get attention in the frame, I had to take off my shirt, put in all this energy, change my look, but
I used to tell her (Deepika Padukone) when we watched the scenes on the monitor that she is so
visually stunning that the eye keeps going only to her. I can keep doing whatever hell I want, but
when I watch it, I don't look at myself, I only look at her."

"Such chemistry is only destiny. Our energies from the beginning were in tandem. I knew she
(Deepika Padukone) will be easy to work with, but you can't get your eyes off the screen when you
are looking at her. I love what I see. I only watch Deepika when I see the monitor. In the past, I
would only watch myself. It's the first time that I can't help but watch her."

"I don't have any inhibitions in life, either as a person or as a performer, which works to my advantage.
When you are doing a passionate love story, what drives the narrative forward is the palpable chemistry
between the two lead characters. You don't have to gear yourself to make that happen... it's either
there or not there."

"I get nervous and anxious about audience response but I distract myself by playing a sport, or a video
game, or by doing some workout. I also start responding to several messages coming in and that keeps
me busy. Basically, I see to it that I get occupied to stay off stress."

"I love everything about the opposite sex. Women are the most beautiful creation of nature. I am
getting a lot of attention from women these days. There is a marked difference from the way ladies used
to react towards me. If most women think you're hot, what more do you need?"

"I am a full-on romantic. I am naturally wired that way. I was born to be an aashiq. If I am in love, it's
aar ya paar. I will do everything for that person. Whether it's sharing my feelings through messaging or
showing physical affection. I am very expressive. I am a superb boyfriend. I'd give myself an A ++ and
a golden star."(Winks)

"When I revealed to the media that I'm in love, I was recovering from dengue and completely drugged
out. I was feeling really loopy. I didn't want to reveal so much but I have no regrets. At least, I spoke
the truth. I wasn't falsifying anything. I do think it was a little irresponsible of me. I shouldn't have
given an interview in that state. I guess I got caught in a weak moment."

"I don't expect much out of a relationship. My needs are very basic. I just need to be spoken to sweetly
and given a lot of warmth and affection. If things like advice, support and security come from it, it's a
wholesome and fantastic relationship."

"Till two years ago, I had no faith in the institution of marriage. I thought it was a defunct institution
and that it didn't work for modern society. But I don't know what's happened to me in the past two
years. My thoughts have taken a U-turn. I am not commitment phobic anymore. Now, I feel that one
can be committed to one person for his whole life. I can't wait to start a family. But I feel I am not
ready yet. Since marriage is a huge responsibility, I want to achieve a few things professionally before
I take the plunge." (said in 2013.)

"The term 'fun-loving' describes me best. There should always be humour and masti in the air. I don't
take myself or life too seriously. In fact, I feel great ridiculing people who do. The truth is I am very
sensitive and tend to get emotional about the smallest things. Since I over-extend myself in being
emotionally-attached, I stay away from all things serious. It works as a defence mechanism for me. I
express joy very freely but not sadness. I keep my lows to myself."

"I don’t like the preppy look. I’m not a preppy dresser. I hate the American tea party look. Where
you’re dressed in pink and light-blue sweaters. In America eight out of 10 people look the same.
Everyone’s wearing the same jeans, same brands and same shoes. Girls wear the same black colour
leggings with same side ponytails and side-shouldered top. Also I hate skinny jeans."

"There is no greater security than the love of your parents. Make it a point to spend time with your
family even if you have a busy schedule."

"When in love, let yourself go. There's no greater feeling than being in love. Everyone should fall madly
in love once in life, or you won't get to know life."

"I love good clothes. For me what is in trend or what is latest is not important. In fact, retro is a big
part of the way I dress. But I love to see fashion magazines and say, ‘Waah kya look hai’. I love clothes."

"Be a great boyfriend. Make your partner feel she is the queen of the world because women truly are the
best thing to have happened to this world."

"Don't discuss your disappointments with everyone. Learn from them. Have the courage to move on."

"Most of us often fail to value the simple pleasures of life. There's a certain joy in doing things like
walking up to a bhelwala and eating his sukha bhel, or watching a movie in a theatre instead of at home."

"I'm a cryer."
