Koffee With Karan Season 8: From Secret Engagement to Film Industry Struggles; Deepika and Ranveer Reveal Secrets on Karan Johar's Show
Season 8 of the popular talk show, 'Koffee With Karan,' kicked off with a bang as Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh graced the stage together for the very first time as a couple. This dynamic duo shared some intriguing insights, making it an exciting episode and a significant improvement over the previous season.
To the delight of DeepVeer fans, the couple also unveiled their long-awaited wedding video, five years after their marriage.
Here are five intriguing secrets about Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's courtship, marriage, and their lives that were revealed on Koffee With Karan 8.
A Secret Engagement Lasting Three Years
Deepika and Ranveer's love story began during the filming of "Ram Leela" in 2012, culminating in their marriage in 2018. However, what took everyone by surprise was Ranveer's revelation that they were secretly engaged for three years before tying the knot. This revelation left host Karan Johar visibly astonished. "I proposed in 2015, and we were secretly engaged for three years," Ranveer disclosed, shedding light on their well-kept secret.
A Priceless Engagement Ring
Ranveer Singh's proposal to Deepika Padukone took place during a romantic getaway in the Maldives in 2015. He admitted that he bought her engagement ring before embarking on the trip, and it was a piece that exceeded his financial means at the time. When asked if he had presented her with a dazzling diamond ring, he responded, "Yes sir, beyond my resources at the time, perhaps, but even so, a very impressive one." He further explained that he sought advice from his sister and mother before making the purchase.
Deepika's Mother's Initial Reaction
Following Ranveer's proposal, the couple flew to Bangalore to meet Deepika's family, who were unaware of the engagement. When Deepika broke the news during a dinner with close family friends, her family was taken aback. However, Deepika's mother, Ujjala, had reservations that she expressed once they returned home. She asked, "Who is this guy? He's proposed marriage, and you've said yes also?" It took Ujjala several years to warm up to Ranveer, but he is now one of her "favorite" people.
Dealing with Film Industry Setbacks
Ranveer Singh candidly discussed coping with failure in the film industry during the interview. He confessed to feeling disheartened after a series of box office disappointments, beginning with "83." The film's release coincided with the emergence of the Omicron variant, leading to the loss of key markets. This unfortunate timing burdened "83" with the label of a commercial underperformer. Subsequently, "Jayeshbhai Jordaar" and "Cirkus" also failed to meet audience expectations. Ranveer admitted that experiencing three consecutive film flops was a new and challenging experience for him.
Deepika's Advice on Confidence
Ranveer Singh's once flamboyant fashion sense has mellowed, and Deepika played a role in this transformation. She told him, "You come off as supremely confident, but you are under-confident. Stop distracting people from who you are with all these flashy clothes." Ranveer acknowledged that he did not want his extravagant attire to become his defining feature.
Deepika and Ranveer continue to captivate not only on screen but also with their candid and endearing off-screen moments.
