Ex-flames Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone seem to have buried their past, as they are quite comfortable in each other's company.
Ranbir and Deepika, who are sharing screen space in "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" (YJHD) for the first time post their break up, are all praises for each other and have bonded so well that the "Barfi" actor wants to maintain his friendship with Deepika for long and be the godfather to her children.
"Deepika and I have always been friends. It's not that we keep in touch often, but whenever I have to reach out to her or vice versa, there is no sense of awkwardness. We are so caught up with our assignments and the people we work with that our lives centre around them," Ranbir told Times Of India.
"But Deepika and I will remain friends for a very long time. I will be her children's godfather; I will play with them and all of that. We have that kind of relationship," he added.
Lauding his co-star and ex-girlfriend for her professionalism, Ranbir said, "I got to know Deepika, the co-star with this film. We were very new in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' (2008). We were also in a relationship during that time, so it was different. In YJHD, we came together as professionals, both of us having spent five years in the industry."
"I haven't been so intimidated by a co-star as much as I have been with Deepika, especially since I know her so well. She has surprised me as an actor with the kind of hard work that she puts in. I am proud of her."
Expressing his comfort level while working opposite Deepika, Ranbir opined that it is special to share screen space with his ex girlfriend. "Especially in a job like acting, where you have to constantly expose yourself as a person, you know each other so well that you are comfortable. There is no sense of trying to hide oneself or put a facade. All this only helps in your work," Ranbir said.
The duo is paired as a romantic couple in Ayan Mukerji's "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" and the trailer of the movie shows the actors sharing a great on-screen chemistry. Ranbir had said that he was looking forward to work with Deepika after "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".
Produced by Karan Johar, "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" is set to hit the screens on 31 May.
