Ranveer Sing talks about being a father after his marriage to Deepika Padukone.

In one of his first public appearances after his wedding with Deepika Padukone, actor Ranveer Singh opened up about his feelings on marriage and parenthood. Speaking at the India Economic Conclave 2018 organised by a media group, Ranveer had this to say when asked about being a father:

"“It’s not my call really. Partly yes, it’s my call but mostly it’s just her and I allow her that. I allow her to make most of the decisions because she is better at everything. I have no qualms in admitting that she is a much more mature, much more evolved person than me.”" - Ranveer Singh, Actor

Talking about his marriage, Ranveer Singh said that it’s the best thing that has happened to him and that he would recommend it to the entire young population in the country.

“I feel like I am alive. Marriage is the best thing that has happened to me. I feel some kind of magic, some kind of power, I feel invincible. You know in superhero movies, the moment when the suit comes on, I feel marriage has done that to me. I feel like I have grown up now, I feel like I’m a man, I feel grounded and I feel secure,” is how Ranveer described his feelings post his grand wedding with Deepika.

Celebrity chef Vikas Khanna’s directorial debut feature film The Last Color, starring Neena Gupta, will have its world premiere at the prestigious 30th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival 2019.

The film will be screened thrice during the festival being held from January 3-14, 2019. The film is under the competition category - New Voices New Vision.

The movie, which marks Vikas' debut as a director and screenwriter, is based on his bestselling book by the same name.

Vikas Khanna and Neena Gupta hold the book The Last Color.

The Last Color is the story of Chhoti (Aqsa Siddiqui) - a nine-year-old flower seller and tightrope walker who befriends Noor (Neena Gupta), a 70-year-old widow living a life of complete abstinence. Chhoti promises to bring a ray of hope in the life of Noor. Besides Neena and Aqsa, the film also stars transgender activist Rudrani Chettri.

The teaser of the film was unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and marked Vikas' fourth appearance at the fest. The film has been shot by Subhranshu Das, and produced by Bindu Khanna, Poonam Kaul and Jitendra Mishra under the banner of House Of Omkar.

The Last Color is inspired by the real-life experiences observed by Vikas while researching around food and culture for his books and TV shows. He was shooting for Holi for his book "Utsav: A Culinary Epic of Indian Festivals" in Vrindavan when he witnessed a desolate sight - everyone was playing with colours during the festival except for the widows who were dressed in white and watching the celebrations from their balconies and terraces.
