It’s unfair to keep asking women such questions: Deepika Padukone about motherhood!

Bollywood power couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh who got married in November last year had been together for over six years before they tied the knot. During the period of their relationship, the couple was often asked about their plans of settling down with each other. Now that the couple is married, the fans are eager to know as to when they will embrace parenthood.

During an interview in a daily, Deepika Padukone was asked about pregnancy and motherhood. She said it will happen at some point adding that it’s unfair to ask women such questions.

The actor has been quoted as saying, “It will happen when it has to happen. Motherhood trumps being married. That’s what I hear from people who have had children. Of course, it will happen at some point but no, I think it is unfair to put women through that, to put a couple through that. I guess the day we stop asking the questions is when we will bring about change.”

Deepika and Ranveer tied the knot in two ceremonies – a traditional Sindhi ceremony and a Konkani one. The couple kept their wedding a close-knit private affair but made sure to celebrate their union with their friends and family members in a series of wedding receptions. The couple has always been vocal about their love, respect and admiration for each other and even though they have hectic professional work commitments, both Deepika and Ranveer make sure to take out time for each other.

On the work front, Deepika last graced the big screen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat alongside Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. She is currently shooting for Chhapaak wherein she will essay the role of acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the film co-stars Vikrant Massey in the lead.
