Deepika Padukone: Being in a relationship is very important for me

The Chennai Express actor recently said that she feels complete when she is in a relationship

Deepika Padukone might be keeping mum about her relationship status, but the B-town babe has confessed that she is completely ruled by her heart. Dippy, who is reportedly dating her Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela co-star, Ranveer Singh, said being in a relationship is the most important thing for her.  “I am completely ruled by my heart, not just relationship wise but choosing films comes straight form my heart. For me being in a relationship is I think very important. I think I can speak on behalf of most of the women that they feel complete when they are in a relationship.

“But it has to be a beautiful relationship. A relationship that encourages you and makes you a better person. If it pulls you down or you start becoming someone that you are not it not a place to be in. And I have been in both,” Padukone said at an event recently.

When asked to comment on her relationship with Ranveer, the leggy lass said, “I think I am in a stage where I don’t want to rush into something. For a young girl like me it’s very important to get to know someone, may be it also comes from the fact that I didn’t want to go through heart ache again and you want to be sure about the person that you eventually land up with.”

The ‘Cocktail’ star was in a serious relationship with Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor and the couple split after dating for one year.  Despite her personal life, Padukone has acquired the ‘flavour of the season’ tag after giving back-to-back hits with Cocktail, Race 2, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Ram-Leela.

She does not think she has got any formula but she follows her heart while choosing a script.  “I don’t think success for me has a particular formula. I think success comes from following your heart, believing in yourself and being the person you want to be V/s being someone that you are expected to be, and I don’t think you are living an honest life if you are doing that,” she added.
