In an interview with Firstpost, Deepika had talked in length about her mother, Ujjala Padukone, and had stated, “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’.

Talking about her strict parenting style, Ujjala 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 added, “We were all her priority. She allowed us to pursue our passion and, at the same time, disciplined all of us. Today if Ranveer (Singh) 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.”

We have often heard Ranveer Singh saying that his wife is very disciplined and organized person and he is totally opposite to that.  Now we know where it is coming from.
