In an interview with Filmfare, Deepika disclosed how she wanted to be in a casual relationship with Ranveer, although it ended up with their marriage. She said, "When Ranveer and I met in 2012, I told him, "I realize there’s a connection between us. I really like you but I want to keep it open. I don’t want to commit. If I get attracted to different people I’m going to do my thing."
