Twinkle Khanna weighed in on Deepika Padukone getting trolled for her decision to casually date people before marrying Ranveer Singh.
Deepika was subjected to massive social media trolling after she hinted on Koffee With Karan 8 that she and Ranveer Singh were in an open relationship during the initial stages of their relationship. While Deepika has not reacted to the trolling yet, Twinkle defended the actress. She said that Deepika’s approach could ‘save a lot of women from marrying dogs.’
Twinkle Khanna Extends Her Support To Deepika Padukone
In a blog post for Times of India, Twinkle wrote, “On Koffee with Karan Season 8, Deepika managed to outrage uncles, aunties, and an entire lot of India’s not-so-eligible bachelors by confessing that unlike her reel self, she did not swoon and fall at the feet of the first moustached suitor hanging around her. Instead, she had dated other men while also dating her future husband. The trolling she has received because of her admission is baffling.”
“While we wait for the day when legislators stop barking up the wrong tree and legalize same-sex marriages, I suppose Deepika’s idea of making an informed choice may save a lot of women from marrying dogs, and more commonly, frogs in princely robes,” she added.
What Did Deepika Padukone Say?
Deepika and Ranveer were sharing their love story with Karan Johar when Deepika told the KWK host, “I wanted to be single for a while because I had come from difficult relationships. I was going through a phase where I said ‘I just don’t want to be attached, don’t want to be committed’. And I had fun! And then he came along, so I didn’t commit, until he proposed to me. There was no ‘commitment as such. Even if we were technically allowed to see other people, we would just keep coming back to each other.”
