Deepika Padukone had recently said that Ranbir Kapoor will not marry until she allowed him to. This statement became viral, and Deepika got a lot of criticism for it. She has now clarified that her comment was taken out of context and she is very hurt.
Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor's Tamasha released today (27th Nov). At a promotional interview of Tamasha, Ranbir Kapoor explained the actual situation to a leading news channel, "Deepika did not say it like that. We all say it in jest. They had asked me when will I marry. Then they saw Deepika, like she is my mom, and asked her what she feels about it. Sometimes, we just read the headlines. We don't read the actual material inside.''

When asked if he had to explain that statement of Deepika Padukone to Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor replied, "I just have to explain it to you, to the media."
After hearing Ranbir Kapoor's reply, Deepika Padukone said, "The situation there was very different. The way it was reported was very different. When I read the report.... and the comments, saying 'How can she say this', 'What does she think of herself'...it hurt"
Not long ago, Ranbir Kapoor had told to Mid Day that whatever they (Ranbir & Deepika) say is misconstrued, ''A lot of people are linking what we are doing at promotional events to our personal history. Whatever we say is misconstrued.''
''I am talking about Deepika because she is my co-star. Had I been promoting Besharam (2013), I would be talking about Pallavi Sharda who was my co-star in that film, but everyone only wants to talk about the chemistry I share with Deepika,'' Ranbir said.
Talking about her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone said, ''We have come to a stage in our lives where we have a lot of clarity about where we stand in each other's lives.''
Deepika Padukone further added, ''Whatever we say will be turned into a headline. It has been this way ever since we got to know each other. But I have learnt to take things with a pinch of salt.''
Ranbir Kapoor said, ''I don't know if there is any formula to exes being friends. But there is no negativity between us; we came to the sets without any baggage.''
Ranbir added, ''A lot of credit for what you see between us on-screen goes to the director. In Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, it was because of Ayan (Mukerji, director). Since he knows us personally, he knew how to build our characters and extract the emotions required for a particular scene.''
''The same happened in case of Tamasha because Imtiaz (Ali) also knows us well. Both of us have worked with him earlier. He has a mature energy and comes from an honest place, so we cannot fake anything with him,'' he added.
