Ram and Leela may not have met. Bajirao may have failed to be with his Mastaani but Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are set for a happy ending off-screen. They announced their wedding on social media with a bang and are all set to tie the knot on November 14 and 15, at Lake Como, Italy. With hardly any time left for the biggest Bollywood wedding to happen, we decided to look back at their beautiful love story brimming strong for six long years.
Their invitation card read:

“With the blessings of our families, it gives us immense joy in sharing that our wedding is set to take place on the 14th and 15th of November 2018. We thank you for all the love you have showered upon us over the years and seek your blessings as we embark on this incredible journey of love, loyalty, friendship and togetherness. Lots of love, Deepika and Ranveer.”
While we all have been wondering why they chose November 15 as their wedding date, we could figure that it actually marks the 5th anniversary of their first film together. It was none other than Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ramleela, which had some serious sparks flowing between the two. And that's when they actually fell for each other.

Ranveer never shies away from expressing his love and affection for Deepika. He's been quite outspoken about his admiration since the very beggining. It was in 2013 when Ranveer was diagnosed with dengue and he had dropped a hint about his love life saying he's down with Loveria.
"I am love-struck and down with 'Loveria'. It's good. It's rocking. I love being in love. It's the best feeling in the world. I have never felt like this before."
When Deepika was asked to comment, the actress chose to keep her comment neutral.
"No, it’s amazing, the way he is. He is so unique. And I think what I admire about him is that he is so unapologetic about the way he is."
Not just that, Ranveer even dropped by on the sets of Happy New Year. This became a regular thing and soon Ranveer was spotted on Deepika's other film sets like Race 2, Chennai Express and Piku. Well, if you thought it was only Ranveer following Deepika and making all the efforts, then you are so wrong! Deepika too followed Ranveer when he was busy shooting for Dil Dhadakne Do in Barcelona. The two made sure to spend quality time with each other, no matter how hectic their schedules.
Remember when Deepika was in the Maldives with her family for New Year in 2015? That's when Ranveer also joined them. Soon after, Ranveer headed to New York for Deepika's 29th birthday celebrations and further accompanied her to her hometown in Bangalore where she celebrated her birthday with her family. Ahem! Ahem! In fact, Ranveer was often spotted spending time with Deepika's family in Mumbai and Bangalore. The same year, both Deepika and Ranveer's family celebrated his birthday together in London.
Remember the 2015 IIFA awards night which made headlines all because Ranveer went down on his knees and proposed to Deepika on National television?! That was such a special moment. Another time, the heartthrob was spotted waiting outside the Mumbai airport for 3 long hours for Deepika to land.

When Deepika actually confessed to her feelings for Ranveer for the first time ever in public, it was genuine and spontaneous. She openly expressed how happy and transparent her life is when she is with him.
“He is my best friend (and this is not to be taken lightly). I am emotional, sensitive and vulnerable and I hurt easily. I can be so naked in front of Ranveer and I know he will never hurt me or take me for granted. That is the kind of trust and understanding we have. The reason I love and respect him is that I can bare my soul and still feel comfortable. If this is divine connection - this is what it is!"
In one of her previous interviews, Deepika had mentioned how she feels when she's with Ranveer.
“When we're with each other, we don't need anything or anyone else. We're comfortable in each other's presence. Sometimes it's an intelligent conversation, sometimes just silence, sometimes there's a childlike innocence. We keep each other grounded. We are good in that sense.”

“I can't put a year to it. Honestly, I've never been able to do anything that is time bound. I believe relationships have their way of unfolding. As far as my equation with him is concerned, I am sure that will unfold in its own manner. 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."
Deepika recently appeared on Koffee With Karan's first episode with Alia Bhatt and revealed a lot about her love life. When Karan asked Deepika about the one thing she loves, hates and tolerates about Ranveer Singh, Deepika response was so spot on.
"I love Ranveer's emotional quotient, hate his lifestyle and tolerate his fashion sense."
When Karan further asked her about the kind of a husband Ranveer would make - emotional, mamma's boy or chauvinistic? Deepika was prompt enough and answered, “Mamma's Boy.”
Well, the big #DeepVeer wedding has already begun with a puja and haldi ceremony in Bangalore. The Italy functions begin on the 13th and after the wedding the next day, Deepika and Ranveer will officially be husband and wife! Stay tuned for all the updates.
