Deepika Padukone keeps her marriage to Ranveer Singh strong by scheduling time together.
The couple have been married since 2018 and she's revealed they both have to put time and effort into their relationship to make sure they don't drift apart due to their busy careers - so they have to put dates in their diaries for "quality time" together.
She told Vogue India: "Spending time with my husband is very important to me. You have to make the time … I have to say both he and I make the effort. It cannot be one-sided. We have to schedule it.
"In our professions, where one of us can be travelling for a month at a time or sometimes he might have a late night and I have an early morning, there are times when we are in the same city but hardly get quality time with each other. It’s not the quantum of time but the quality of that time we have together. We love it when it’s just the two of us but we also love spending time with our families."
She also revealed one of the main loves they share is music and they often stay up late dancing to their favourite songs.
Deepika, 37, added: "I love dancing. Sometimes, on the weekends, my husband and I play music in the living room and stay up dancing until 4am showing off our playlists to each other."
In a previous interview Deepika admitted "patience" is another key to having a successful relationship. She told Time magazine: "We either grow up being influenced by the movies or the relationships and marriages around us. The sooner you accept that the journey two people are going to be on is going to be very different from someone else’s journey, the better it is. "Having said that, not just with my parents but I think with that entire generation... 'Patience' is probably one of the main things that I feel like couples today – I sound like some love guru but – lack. That’s something we can all learn from, not just Ranveer and I from our parents, but all of us from the generation before. Lots of other things, but patience being the main thing."
