Will you marry me? Delhi guy asks Deepika Padukone
New Delhi: It wasn`t the perfect setting for a romantic proposal, but a young Delhi boy dared to pop the question to actress Deepika Padukone when she came to a mall here Tuesday to promote her film ‘Lafangey Parindey’.
The youth went down on his knees, looked at the Bollywood beauty and asked: "Will you marry me?"
Deepika, who was accompanied by her co-star Neil Nitin Mukesh, seemed baffled by the sudden, unexpected proposal. But she was quick to respond.
"I am not ready for marriage yet," replied Deepika, who looked lovely in a sari.
But the youth wasn`t willing to give up so easily.
"But I am ready for you," he said.
Deepika, who is rumoured to be dating liquor baron Vijay Mallya`s son Siddharth, brushed the whole incident with a laugh.
Both the actors were in a fun mood and mingled with the huge crowd that had gathered in the south Delhi mall to catch a glimpse of the stars at the event organised by DT Cinemas.
Neil`s father, singer Nitin Mukesh, was present at the event and he sang his father Mukesh`s evergreen song ‘Kisiki muskurahaton pe...’ for the crowd.
Even Neil and Deepika gave in to the requests of their fans by doing a casual dance to ‘Dhatad tatad’, a popular song from ‘Lafangey Parindey’, which releases Friday.
The film will have Neil playing a boxer who fights blindfolded, and Deepika will be seen as a visually challenged girl who can dance on skates.
