Ranveer Singh is known for his quirky fashion sense, and he recently revealed how his wardrobe has changed since marrying Deepika Padukone. After dating for several years, the couple married in 2018. Ranveer admitted that it was difficult at first to adjust to Deepika and her family.
Ranveer Singh stated on Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan Season 7, “I am still managing. I am still figuring it out. For starters, I have two wardrobes now. When I go to Bangalore, there is a special wardrobe – white T-shirts and blue jeans. I don’t want to throw them off.”
When Karan asked, “But are there difficult moments when it comes to adaptation?” To this Ranveer said, “Yes, of course. But now we have been together for 10 years. Initially, they were completely thrown away like who is this, what is this? Especially Deepika Padukone’s mom. She did not know what to make of me, honestly. We took time to warm up to each other but now she is like my mom.”
This isn’t the first time Ranveer has defied gender stereotypes while adjusting to Deepika’s life. Unlike the traditional practice of a bride moving to her husband or in-laws’ home after the wedding, Ranveer moved into Deepika’s Mumbai home. In an interview with India Today in 2019, the actor stated, “I’ve grown up seeing a marriage where the attitude is to make it work regardless of anything. A marriage is a commitment, out is not an option. So whatever you have to work through, you do.”
“The most sensible and convenient thing was for me to move into her set-up. She is comfortable there and I don’t want to displace her. I always try to give her priority,” he added.
On Thursday, the show Koffee With Karan will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar. Along with Ranveer, the first episode will also feature Alia Bhatt. This will be the first time Alia will be seen on screen since announcing her pregnancy with her husband Ranbir Kapoor.
