Ranveer Singh , who was recently down with Dengue is currently recovering at his home as he has been advised a two week rest period. He contracted the disease in Durgapur (West Bengal) and was admitted in Leelavati hospital for a week. In an interview with a leading newspaper, Ranveer talked about how weak he felt when he was sick and how the love of his life, allegedly Deepika Padukone , helped him to overcome the illness.

When asked about his 'secret' love affair, Ranveer said, "I was sick with dengue, had my nude photo on the front page of the newspaper, but still I am happy. I think if this is not love then what is. But I won't reveal the name of the girl. It is a very strong feeling which I am experiencing for the past few months and it is difficult for me to explain it. She cares a lot for me and I love everything about her. But I won't marry her right away as I need to be in a better financial position and give a few big hits, then only I will think of starting a family."

When Ranveer was asked whether he has been in love before, he said " I keep falling in love again and again. It happened when I was in Class seven and then in my college days. It is probably because I have a large heart and I care for people a lot. And I constantly need someone to show my affection. It is tough for me to hide my feelings." Ranveer also spoke about his alleged girlfriend, Deepika Padukone. He said, "After doing a particular scene we used to watch it on the monitor. Deepika was so brilliant and visually stunning that you would only watch her. I don't watch myself but only her." Ranveer will be seen with Deepika in his next film Ram Leela, which releases on 15th November.
