“My father in fact has had the most massive crush on you. I told him today. I said I am doing this thing, do you want to come. He was saying ‘no, no’. Maybe I've mentioned this to you before but he's always been doing his own thing, playing badminton, children, wife… He had this whole routine of waking up in the morning and taking the newspapers to the loo, coffee etc."


Further in the conversation, Deepika had mentioned that when Prakash had come out from the bathroom, he was seen having dark circles under his eyes, which reportedly had happened due to crying. Deepika had also jokingly mentioned that this is a running joke in her family. She had added:

"The day you announced or rather the media got to know that you were getting married, he locked himself up in the bathroom. Till today, it's a running joke in the family. He was so shattered. He came out and you could actually see, he had these bags under his eyes. My mother was like, what were you crying in the loo or what?”
