It was the “Koffee with Karan” show to which Deepika Padukone and her husband Ranveer Singh were invited for a chit-chat session. In the rapid-fire round, Karan asked Deepika a question as to which celebrity’s house would she like to be a fly on the wall.
Deepika was quick to answer “Roger Federer” and the reason she chose Federer is because she draws a lot of inspiration from athletes and she is hugely inspired by him as an athlete and as a human.
