Ranveer wanted to marry Deepika 3 years ago but this stopped him

New Delhi, Nov 30: Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone tied the knot in a high profile private wedding ceremony in Italy's Lake Como on November 14 and 15. 

Recently, Ranveer made a big revelation and told Filmfare, "I've been ready (to get married) for a while. I was just waiting for Deepika to be ready." The actor added: "I knew all too well that this is the woman I'm going to marry. This is the woman who would become the mother of my children. I've been thinking about marriage seriously for almost three years now. I was just waiting, I told her, 'The minute you say so, we'll do it'." Deepika and Ranveer started dating while filming Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram-Leela, their first film together. Ranveer told Filmfare, "Six months into the relationship, I knew she was the one. I nurtured the relationship accordingly."

They held a wedding reception in Bengaluru a week later, followed by a party thrown by Ranveer's sister in Mumbai.The party is continuing and the couple is not tired. "Not at all... It's all our pleasure," the effervescent Ranveer, with a smiling, glowing and heavily bejewelled Deepika beside him, beamed as he told IANS at the party.They smiled ear-to-ear, taking only three five to 10-minute breaks in between meeting the guests, whom they greeted with a hug and a short 

chit-chat and gratitude.

There was a free flow of snacks, cocktails, an exhaustive food menu and delectable desserts to choose from.Malabari Kerala parotta, a wide variety of Northwest frontier foods, Makki ki roti, sarson ka saag, biryani, shawarma, Chinese, Goan -- they ensured there was a variety.

When asked about the choice of venue, Ranveer told Filmfare: "Whatever she (Deepika Padukone) wished, I wanted her to have it. That's the first step in being the husband of the millennium. Whatever her vision of getting married, I wanted her to realise it. Whatever she wanted, it was done exactly in that manner. She deserves every bit of it. I too deserve happiness and my happiness comes from her happiness. It's that simple."

A separate party has been organised for the Indian film fraternity on December 1. They are said to have invited not just their starry friends, but also those who work relentlessly behind the scenes.

Come December, Ranveer will be back to working on Rohit Shetty's "Simmba", while Deepika Padukone is likely to resume work in January.Together, they have starred in films like "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela" and "Bajirao Mastani", as well as "Padmaavat".
