Ranveer Singh is all in awe of Deepika Padukone in person. But, he is also one of the top admirers of her work. Therefore, he feels disappointed realising he doesn’t have any project with Deepika this year. Both the actors were seen in Padmaavat, which released in January 2018. While Ranveer got Simmba releasing in December last year, Deepika has given her nod to Meghna Gulzar’s next, Chhapaak. And Ranveer is happy to see that his wife finally liked something and agreed to work upon it.

In his latest interview with DNA, Ranveer opened up on how much he likes the ‘actress’ Deepika Padukone. He mentioned that there’s so much left to explore about her and she has more potential than what the audience has seen so far. Ranveer said, “She is one of the finest actors we have and her true potential hasn’t been tapped into yet. There is so much she has brought to her roles and so much she can bring. There’s an emotional depth to her that hasn’t been explored”.

He added, “Much as I am truly, madly and deeply in love with her, I am aching to act with Deepika again. As a fan of her work, I have been waiting patiently for her to commit to a film. And, I’m truly overjoyed that she has committed to working with Meghna Gulzar on Chhapaak. In fact, when she told me that she had liked the script and would be acting as well as co-producing it, I said, ‘Hallelujah! She has finally liked something”.

Meanwhile, the couple is currently holidaying at an undisclosed location out of India. They spent New Year together and are also ringing in Deepika’s 33rd birthday together. After coming back, Ranveer will straight away get to the promotions of his upcoming, Gully Boy, with Alia Bhatt while Deepika will begin the work on Chhapaak.
