Twinkle Khanna was the first celebrity to support Deepika Padukone while she faced widespread criticism for admitting that “she dated other men while dating Ranveer Singh.” After admitting on the program Koffee With Karan 8 that she had casually dated a few while dating Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone faced intense backlash from people of all ages. When she did, Twinkle Khanna opened up about the matter.
Deepika Padukone’s casual dating remark was supported by Twinkle Khanna, who made fun of marriages
The well-known “Mrs Funnybones,” Twinkle Khanna, is renowned for speaking candidly about subjects close to her heart. Twinkle recently shared her opinions about Deepika Padukone’s statement on Koffee With Karan 8, which sparked a lot of controversy. The actress-turned-writer discussed Deepika’s casual dating remark while opening up about same-sex marriage.
Deepika’s admission that “she didn’t fall in love with Ranveer at first sight” infuriated her uncles, aunts, and a number of eligible bachelors, according to Twinkle. Rather, she chose to date Ranveer Singh in addition to other men. On stage, she also discussed how her dating life was impacted by Banaras Hindu University students. Twinkle penned:
“On Koffee with Karan, Deepika managed to outrage uncles, aunties, and an entire lot of India’s not-so-eligible bachelors by confessing that unlike her real self, she did not swoon and fall at the feet of the first moustached suitor hanging around her. Instead, she had dated other men while also dating her future husband. The trolling she has received because of her admission is baffling. In fact, it has gone as far as students at Banaras Hindu University reportedly putting on a play where a girl plays Deepika and male students act as her past boyfriends.”
Twinkle praised Deepika’s method for finding a suitable partner, calling it “logical.” Giving an illustration, Twinkle Khanna wrote: “Her approach to finding a suitable partner though is rather logical. Suppose you want to buy a couch, wouldn’t you go to the store to figure out which one feels nice and bouncy, which has a comfortable backrest and which fabric doesn’t make your skin itch? But when it comes to the couch potato whom you have to snuggle against, you are expected to just pick one without testing out alternatives.”
Deepika discussed the beginnings of their relationship in one of the Koffee With Karan segments. She went on to say that she didn’t commit to Ranveer because she wanted to be free of obligations after being in challenging relationships in the past. They would return to each other even though they were free to see other people. According to quotes, she said:
“I wanted to be single for a while because I had come from difficult relationships. I was going through a phase where I said ‘I just don’t want to be attached, don’t want to be committed’. And I had fun! And then he came along so I didn’t commit until he proposed to me. There was no ‘commitment’ as such. Even if we were technically to see other people, we would just keep coming back to each other.”
Deepika further shared that she would meet other people, but in her mind, she was committed to Ranveer. The actress was quoted as saying: “I did meet other people. I wasn’t interested or excited by anyone else that I was seeing. In my mind, I was committed to him. I would meet other people, but in the back of my head, it was like, “I am going back to him.”
