A legend in the world of sports, Prakash Padukone is no stranger to the limelight. However, he admitted that he found it “difficult” when he first read about his daughter Deepika Padukone’s link-ups in gossip columns.
On India Today India Tomorrow with Rajdeep Sardesai, Prakash said, “Initially, we found it difficult. But nowadays, we’re used to it. Some of it – what is being reported is true, but some of it is absolutely not correct. But it is a part and parcel of… you can’t have only good things. One has to accept it.”
Deepika chimed in, “Like athletes, you can’t only have the trophies and not the injuries.” She said that it was not impossible to keep one’s personal life away from the media glare. “That’s not to say that the speculation will not continue. I think that’s a part and parcel of what we do,” she added.
Currently, Deepika is gearing up for her dream wedding with longtime boyfriend Ranveer Singh. After keeping the media guessing for months, the couple recently announced that they will get married on November 14 and 15.
Buzz is that Ranveer and Deepika will exchange garlands at the breathtaking Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como in Italy. It is being said that their wedding will be an intimate affair, with only Shah Rukh Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Farah Khan and Aditya Chopra in attendance from the film fraternity.
