Talking about cricket, when Deepika was asked who is her favourite cricketer? She said,
“My all-time favourite cricketer is Rahul Dravid; a lot of my idols are not what they have done in the sport and the game, but how they have conducted themselves outside, for me he is somebody I have admired and looked up to, and he is from Bangalore.”
Deepika further added, “Ranveer and I watch matches together, he is a very big football fan which everyone knows but he is also a big cricket fan. We don’t watch every single match, but yes, when there are important games, we either make it a point to sit with each other or with family and friends and make it an event, like the whole nation does.”
