Be­ing tra­di­tional is the coolest thing for this duo

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tors Ran­veer Singh and Deepika Padukone are set to play his­tor­i­cal char­ac­ters in their next. And the now-gen ac­tors say that hold­ing on to tra­di­tion is a re­ally cool thing to do. “No mat­ter how much we’ve pro­gressed over the years, we’ve (young In­di­ans) re­tained our cul­ture and tra­di­tion. For me that’s the coolest at­tribute and it gets even more pro­nounced when I travel abroad,” says Dippy. The ac­tor, who along with ru­moured boyfriend ac­tor Ran­veer Singh, is fea­tured in Vogue In­dia’s Oc­to­ber 2015 edi­tion, finds a sup­porter of her views in Ran­veer. “The fact that we can re­main rooted in tra­di­tion and yet evolve with the times (that is the coolest thing about young In­dia),” adds Singh. In fact, for Dippy, her coolest pick from her de­sign­er­wear-stuffed wardrobe is “A mauve and gold coloured kan­jee­varam my mother gave me”.

Talk­ing about cool icons, Deepika says that for her, crick­eter Rahul Dravid and In­fosys co-founder Narayan Murthy are the coolest In­di­ans alive. For Ran­veer how­ever, the choice is sin­gu­lar, and with­out a doubt, ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan. “For a true-blue Hindi movie fa­natic like me, it’s Amitabh Bachchan,” he says.
