Ever since Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh shared screen space in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's romantic drama "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela", speculations regarding the actors' alleged relationship have been rife.

While the duo has stayed tight-lipped about their equation, it now appears that the stunning actress would like to open up a little about her love life. Padukone recently spilled some beans about the importance of Singh in her life and the compatibility level she shares with the actor while talking to a leading magazine.

"He's definitely an important person in my life. He's probably the most compatible person I've met. People find it strange because our energies are different. I'm a calm and centered person. He's an energetic soul. Actually, people only see that side of his personality. He's extremely sensitive and emotional. It's rare to see that in a guy," Padukone told Film Fare.

The actress, however, maintains that they are "just friends" despite being spotted together on multiple occasions.

The pretty actress praising the "Gunday" star, said that she likes his honesty the most and the fact that he doesn't mince his words at all.

Speaking about her marriage plans, Padukone revealed that she needs to find the right person in her life and be completely sure of him before she plans to settle down.

"I have to find the right person first. One needs to be sure. I'm 28, so I should be allowed to casually date. I should know the person completely and then decide on things. Only when I feel it's the right time, will I settle down," the actress explained. "But at some point of time I'll get married and would want to start a family and have many, many, many children. But I will be working."

After emerging as Bollywood's box-office queen, Padukone has been the talk of the town both for her films and her love life.

Her films "Race-2", "Ram-Leela", "Chennai Express" and "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" turned out to be blockbuster hits, which have eventually made her the most sought after actress. The actress has also achieved another feat after she bagged the "Sexiest Woman in the World 2014" title in a poll conducted by FHM magazine.

Padukone is currently on a short break after back to back work commitments. Post the vacation, she will resume shooting for Imtiaz Ali's next opposite ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. The leggy lass has some big releases including "Happy New Year", "Finding Fanny" in the pipeline.

Padukone and Singh will be next be seen romancing each other in Bhansali's upcoming project "Bajirao Mastani" which is scheduled to release in 2015.
