While a lot of actresses are looking to pursue their ambition by turning producers, Deepika Padukone looks to be aiming in a different direction. The Padmavati actress revealed, in an interview with the Filmfare magazine, that she would be happy being a homemaker. "I can’t wait to be a homemaker. Because from the time I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to be that. I’ve always wanted to start a family," the actress said.

Despite the revelation, Padukone is in no hurry to take her relationship with Ranveer Singh to the 'next level' of marriage. She said, "Honestly, I’ve never been able to do anything that is time bound. I believe relationships have their own way of unfolding. As far as my equation with him is concerned, I’m sure that it will unfold in its own manner." 

While the two will not, according to Sanjay Leela Bhansali himself, be sharing any scenes in Padmavati, they were paired alongside each other in Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Raam-Leela (2013) and Bajirao Mastani (2015).

The actress, who said she prefers Ranveer's role as Ram rather than Bajirao, said, "To cast us in two iconic films like Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani, where we were eternal lovers and then to literally tear us apart, where we have not even been on the set together since Padmavati has been hard. To be part of the same journey and not share that experience is definitely hard. That’s the way it is." 

However, Padukone insisted that the two are 'comfortable' with each other. She said, " We’re comfortable in each other’s presence. Sometimes it’s intelligent conversation, sometimes just silence, sometimes there’s a childlike innocence and it’s about being playful [sic]," she added, "We keep each other grounded. We’re very good in that sense." 

Padukone will be essaying the title role of Padmavati in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film.
