"I am completely ruled by my heart, not just relationship wise but choosing films comes straight from my heart. For me being in a relationship is I think very important. I think I can speak on behalf of most of the women that they feel complete when they are in a relationship,” said Padukone.

"But it has to be a beautiful relationship. A relationship that encourages you and makes you a better person. If it pulls you down or you start becoming someone that you are not it not a place to be in. And I have been in both," she added.

When asked to comment on her relationship with actor Ranveer Singh, Padukone said, "I think I am in a stage where I don't want to rush into something. For a young girl like me it's very important to get to know someone, may be it also comes from the fact that I dint want to go through heart ache again and you want to be sure about the person that you eventually land up with."

The 'Cocktail' star was in a serious relationship with Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor and the couple split after dating for one year.

Padukone has given back-to-back hits with 'Cocktail', 'Race 2', 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani', 'Chennai Express' and 'Ram-Leela'.

The actress does not think she has got any formula but she follows her heart while choosing a script.

"I don't think success for me has a particular formula. I think success comes from following your heart, believing in yourself and being the person you want to be V/s being someone that you are expected to be, and I don't think you are living an honest life if you are doing that," she added.
