When you love someone and are certain about taking your relationship to the next level, that of marriage, there’s nothing that can stop you. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, who have been together for almost 6 years now, will be tying the knot on November 14 and 15. The two actors had taken to their respective social media handles to announce their wedding dates and honestly, since then, only we know how we’ve contained our excitement. Of course, they weren’t public about their relationship initially but gradually, they appeared together at social events, sometimes hand in hand. But how did the #DeepVeer love story begin? Where did it all start? We’ll take you through their timeline of romance. There are going to be a lot of ‘awws’ and ‘so cute’ so brace yourself!
Love blossomed for the two actors on the set of the first film they worked together in- Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela (2013 beginning). When Ranveer was celebrating his 4 years in the industry, he had shared a picture of Deepika and himself and captioned it, “Don’t we look great together?”
At the 16th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit held in New Delhi, Deepika recalled the first impression she had of Ranveer and how she thought he was not her type after seeing his debut film. Ranveer, on the other hand, had an exact opposite reaction to it. “The first time I saw her, I almost went flat!,” he said during the Zee Cine Awards held in Macau. Ranveer was then asked by a fan on Twitter as to how he remembered the event so well, he said, “How can one possibly forget that sight?!”
In 2013, Ranveer was admitted to the hospital with dengue but with that, he mentioned he had also contracted loveria. In an interview with TOI, he had said that he wanted to marry the girl he was in love with. “I only watch Deepika when I see the monitor,” he had said. In the same year, as per reports, Ranveer had visited Deepika in Dubai where she was shooting for Happy New Year. Not only this, but he also visited Deepika on the sets of Chennai Express, Piku and her Hollywood debut film, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.
In January 2014, Farah Khan had hosted a birthday bash and a number of celebs attended it. After the party, Deepika was seen walking with Karan Johar while Ranveer followed her with a yellow flower in his hand. In the same year, Deepika was spotted in Barcelona with Ranveer where he was shooting for Dil Dhadakne Do.
Ranveer and Deepika then headed to the Maldives to ring in the new year. The new year began with them making public appearances together. In March 2015, Ranveer and Deepika arrived together for Karim Morani’s birthday. At the IIFA Awards, Ranveer went down on one knee and gave a big red heart to Deepika making everyone go ‘aww’ for them. Their second film Bajirao Mastani released in this year and post the release, Ranveer had shared a video of Deepika cutting his Bajirao moustache (which he loved) off as his next film, Befikre, needed a clean-shaven look.
Cut to 2016 and the two broke the internet! Ranveer and Deepika exited the Ambani party together holding hands. Not only this, during the Star Screen Awards 2016, Ranveer blew a kiss to Deepika and stole the show! In June the same year during the IIFA Awards, Ranveer blew kisses to Deepika who was performing on stage. This is what love is all about, right? This was the same year when the two actors attended a friend’s wedding in Sri Lanka and danced like there is no tomorrow!
The year 2017 saw the couple at a number of outings together, their third film together, Padmaavat was to release too but unfortunately, was pushed to the next year. Since Deepika’s security was important at that time because of the entire Padmaavat controversy, Ranveer made sure to escort her to the car every time they were together. Ranveer dedicated a song to Deepika on Shah Rukh Khan‘s special chat show Lux Golden Divas Baatein With Badshah and Deepika couldn’t stop blushing! Deepika then threw a house party after Ranveer wrapped his portions of Padmaavat. This year, a video of them cuddling had also gone viral. They also celebrated Ranveer’s birthday by going on a quiet dinner which was followed by a drive. We also saw Ranveer and Deepika’s social media PDA- the two couldn’t help but comment something really cute on each other’s post.
Jumping to 2018, the two went on a holiday to Florida and pictures and videos of the couple had gone viral on the internet. They also danced together on Khalibali at the HT Leadership Summit. On Koffee With Karan, when KJo mentioned that Deepika was in a relationship for 5 years, she quickly corrected him and said it was 6! Right before the episode was aired, Ranveer and Deepika put up a post on social media where they announced that they will be getting married on November 14th and 15th.
