On the latest episode of Koffee with Karan, when Ranveer Singh was asked the 'kill, marry, or hook-up' question, he said he'd hook-up with Katrina Kaif (after apologizing to Kat's ex Ranbir Kapoor, who was nonchalant about it) but would love to marry Deepika Padukone.

Why? Because she, according to Singh who has been dating her, is 'marriage material.'


According to a Mid-Day report, Deepika's father, ace badminton player Prakash Padukone, was asked what he thinks of the comment.

He said, "They are adults and know what they are doing. As a father, I have given Deepika the freedom to take her own decisions. Even in this case, she is free to decide whatever she wants to do."

Padukone and Singh have been seeing each other for a while now and routinely go for vacations together. While Singh has spoken about his fondness for her, Padukone remains low-key about the supposed relationship, often playing it down in front of the press.

However, the cat was pretty much out of the bag when Ranbir said on the show that he hopes that Ranveer-Deepika 'see it through' and make some 'awesome babies together.'
