"You know baby I want to learn Konkani."
Ranveer Singh said during a recent event that he is learning his wife Deepika Padukone’s mother tongue Konkani.
The actor later revealed that he wants to learn it so that he can converse with their kids in Konkani.
Hearing this Deepika joked that his sole purpose to learn the language is that she doesn’t turn their kids against him.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer recently attended an NRI convention in California which was hosted by the Konkani community of the area.
In a video shared online from the event, Ranveer can be heard saying:
“I am in a position where I can understand all of Konkani seamlessly but there is a reason behind this, it’s because when we do have children I don’t want their mother to speak to them in Konkani about me without me understanding.”
Deepika then says: “So he came up to me one day and said, ‘You know baby I want to learn Konkani’ and I was like ‘Oh nice, that’s really sweet’.”
She added: “Then it later came out in a conversation that it wasn’t about him wanting to learn Konkani, he wanted to learn it so that I don’t turn our kids against him.”
Ranveer and Deepika tied the knot in November 2018. The couple had an intimate wedding at the Villa del Balbianello in Lake Como, Italy.
They exchanged their vows in both, Konkani and Sindhi styles.
On the work front, Deepika Padukone was last seen in director Kabir Khan’s film 83, alongside Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev.
She will be next collaborating with Hrithik Roshan for the first time in their upcoming action film Fighter.
