'I really hope that when Ranveer and I start a family, we're able to do it the way I experienced it as a child with my parents. Just rooted, and wholesome, and secure.'
All eyes are on Deepika Padukone as she graces the fall 2019 digital cover of Harper's Bazaar USA.
'She is the most famous actress in Bollywood, an international fashion icon, and a dedicated activist on a mission to redefine mental illness for India,' the mag wrote as they introduced their cover star.
Dressed in a blood red Emilia Wickstead off-shoulder gown with exaggerated sleeves, below, Deepika looked picture perfect on the cover.
With her hair tied in a neat ponytail, she finished off the look with red lips and bold eyes.
Photographed by David Roemer, the cover has been styled by Carrie L Goldberg.
For her second look, above, the actor charmed in a classic black backless gown.
In an interview with the mag, Deepika spoke about acting and the choices she has made in life.
'I made some wrong choices -- none of which I regret. It took some amount of, I’d say, 'unsuccessful' experiences to get here... but I don't think I would be if I hadn't been through those experiences.'
'If there's one thing I've always relied on, it's my instincts,' she added.
Commenting about her relationship with Ranveer Singh, she shared, 'Ranveer has always been okay with whatever. He's always said, 'Whatever makes you happy makes me happy.'
'But for me, it’s about wanting to do everything at the right time. It's how I saw my parents do it, so I didn’t know any other way.
'If we had started living together earlier, then what would we be discovering later on?
'That's what this year has been -- living together and discovering each other.
'I like to say we made the best decision of our lives. I know people are cynical about marriage, but that hasn't been our experience. We believe in the institution, and we're enjoying every bit of it.'
'I really hope that when Ranveer and I start a family, we're able to do it the way I experienced it as a child with my parents. Just rooted, and wholesome, and secure,' she added.
