Deepika Padukone and her mother Ujjala Padukone has always given us the 'mother-daughter goals'. In a recent interview, Deepika opened up about how she has learnt things from her mother and cannot take a step without her voice in her head.
'Padmaavat' actress said: "I have learnt a lot from her. I don’t think there is a single thing I can do without her voice in my head. Simple things like when I buy something, I remember that she has always told me, ‘find out how much it is for'."
Ujjala in the same interview spoke about her strict parenting style, and said, "My dad with his British boarding school background was a very disciplined person, so I grew up with strict rules that I didn’t know I was unconsciously borrowing from! I have been like a strict headmistress. I am sure there have been times when they (her husband and daughters) have wanted to throw me out of the house."
Deepika also shared how Ranveer Singh is influenced by her mother. She said: "We were all her priority. She allowed us to pursue our passion and, at the same time, disciplined all of us. Today if Ranveer says ‘my wife expects us to be home at a certain time, go to bed at a certain time’— all those things come from her."
Ujjala Padukone also questioned her parenting when she saw Deepika going through depression She said: “There were times when I told myself, there is somewhere I have failed in the kind of parent I have been. Maybe I was too strict."
Deepika currently runs 'Live Love Laugh Foundation', which she has set up to create awareness and reduce stigma surrounding Mental Health.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Deepika will start shooting for her upcoming film, 'Chhapaak', directed by Meghna Gulzar. The film is based on the life of an acid attack survivor
