In the same interview, When Simi asked Deepika whether she is looking at her relationship with Sidhartha as a non-casual one, the actress responded by saying:

“I don’t know, he is an amazing person and what I admire about him the most is the fact that everything that comes with being a Mallya isn’t consequential to the boy. He is a very simple person, he is very real, he is very simple and the person I know is the person that he was when he was back in London. When he lived alone, when he lived in boarding school, when he could just step out of his house and nobody knew who he was.”
