Break Ke Baad: Deepika’s Journey From A Heartbreak To Her Wedding Card

We’ve been humming ‘here come’s the bride!’ for a while now, and it’s finally happening, as Deepika and Ranveer or #DeepVeer are going to be bound in holy matrimony on November 14-15.

From the moment the bride-to-be made her wedding announcement on Sunday, October 21 – the internet was on the verge of a breakdown, fans heaved a sigh of relief,  and so did members of the media, since the speculation of the wedding date was killing us all.

Come November 15, the couple will finally exchange their wedding wows, far away from the maddening crowd, in Lake Como, Italy.

The Love ‘Cocktail’

Let’s rewind to the autumn of 2013, as Deepika-Ranveer promoted their first on-screen outing Ram Leela. Sparks were in the air, but were shortly extinguished as just a “PR stunt”. As the film rocked the box office , Deepika and Ranveer’s new found connect was warming its  way into our hearts.

But the ‘RK’ tattoo still inked on the nape of her neck, told another story. As Deepika reunited with former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor in the super hit Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, it was clear that the “reunion” was only on screen; reel would not translate into real.

During the 2010 outburst on a talk show, when she suggested that former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor should ideally be endorsing condoms, a hurt Deepika had admitted that she had been cheated upon.

She cattily even asked to see her former flame, Ranbir’s then girlfriend, Katrina’s passport.

‘Return Of’ Deepika

With her personal and professional lives in the doldrums in 2010, the actress resurrected herself with Imtiaz Ali’s Cocktail, in 2012; and as they say, there’s been no looking back, since. One success after the other saw Deepika on top of her game. The unsure, conscious girl had given away to a super-confident actress, who measured her words and struck us with her poise and candor.

As she continued to fan the flames of fame with multiple hits together, it was her public admission on suffering from depression in 2015, that brought her closer to people.

Ranveer Singh’s constant presence by her side, was there for all to see, the actress even admitted, she could ‘be emotionally naked in front of him’.

A direct admission of a ‘deeper’ connect, however, the two were not confirming.

2015 saw Deepika reunite with Ranbir for Tamasha, and it seemed the tables had turned. An unsure, anxious Ranbir, who had recently split from Katrina Kaif seemed to be in awe of Deepika’s growth as an actor and a person.

The same year, she and Ranveer gave another hit, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baji Rao Mastani – their crackling on-screen chemistry was apparent – the lines between reel and real had indeed merged.

From going on family outings and getaways, to attending filmi gatherings together – the two were the ‘joined at the hip’ couple.  As Deepika dipped her toes in International waters, making her Hollywood debut with Fast and Furious 7 , the grapevine was abuzz that the couple were heading towards splitsville. But far from it, pictures of them celebrating a friend’s wedding, to being snapped hand-in-hand at various do’s, spoke otherwise.

Social media became their platform, as the two took to commenting on each other’s Instagram posts with cute emoji’s and monosyllabic terms of endearment. The writing was indeed clear on the “wall”.

2018’s blockbuster hit, Padmaavat, once again proved why they were magic even when not ‘together’ on screen.

Their comfort with the other was clear when they struck a happy pose with Deepika’s ex, Ranbir and his current girlfriend, Alia Bhatt.

The actress’ warmth and maturity was apparent on a recent talk show, as she admitted being good friends with ex, Ranbir, and her fondness for Alia spoke volumes of a woman, who had sailed away from the turbulent tides of time!
