Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Ac­tor Deepika Padukone (left) says that when she pro­fesses her love for Ran­bir Kapoor (inset), it of­ten gets mis­con­strued.

“I don’t think you can de­fine love... He said he loves me, I said I love him, it’s mis­con­strued and it’s stated very dif­fer­ently be­cause love is not just one feel­ing. It’s a very lay­ered emo­tion and feel­ing. It’s some­thing which de­vel­ops over time,” she says.

The 29-year-old ac­tor, who was ear­lier in a re­la­tion­ship with Ran­bir, adds, “It’s not one di­men­sional that ‘Oh, I love him!’ means only one thing. It comes from a place of hon­esty, re­spect and be­ing pro­tec­tive of one an­other.”

Ran­bir, 33, said the two have made their in­di­vid­ual iden­tity and are not try­ing to sell their per­sonal history.

“Deepika and I started our jour­ney in the film in­dus­try eight years ago. I think we have worked hard to make our in­di­vid­ual iden­ti­ties... We try that in­di­vid­ual peo­ple like our work. We are not try­ing to sell our per­sonal life or history,” he says.

“We try to do our best on screen and hope the au­di­ences like our work. It doesn’t af­fect our per­sonal re­la­tion­ship,” he adds.

Deepika, who has worked with Ran­bir in Yeh Jawaani Hai Dee­wani (2013) and Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008), said she re­spects the gen­uine friend­ship she has with the star.

“There’s much more that goes into a re­la­tion­ship than just chem­istry. What we value and ap­pre­ci­ate more is that we have a gen­uine friend­ship for life. That’s what we re­spect about each other the most.”
