Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have been married since November 2018 but the actress shared the one thing that the couple needs to learn.

Deepika appeared on the cover of TIME Magazine and she opened up about her marriage.

In the interview, she admitted that she can be at her “most vulnerable” when she is around him.

Reflecting on her marriage, Deepika said that the key to a successful relationship is “patience”.

She explained: “We either grow up being influenced by the movies or the relationships and marriages around us.

“The sooner you accept that the journey two people are going to be on is going to be very different from someone else’s journey, the better it is.

“Having said that, not just with my parents but I think with that entire generation…

“Patience is probably one of the main things that I feel like couples today – I sound like some love guru but – lack.

“That’s something we can all learn from, not just Ranveer and I from our parents, but all of us from the generation before.

“Lots of other things, but patience being the main thing.”

She went on to discuss the “constant political backlash” against her.

“I don’t know if I’m supposed to feel something about it. But the truth is, I don’t feel anything about it.”

In the past, Padmaavat caused several protests and Deepika even received threats of violence.

More recently, her ‘saffron bikini’ in the Pathaan song Besharam‘ led to boycott calls. Protestors claimed the song promoted obscenity.

Deepika Padukone also opened up about the times when an actress’ career would come to an end as soon as they got married or became a mother. But this is not the case anymore.
