Ever since Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor got together for their romantic comedy, "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewaani", speculations on their relationship and breakups have come to the forefront again.

The ex-flames - Ranbir and Deepika - had acted together in "Bachan Ae Haseno" (2008) before parting ways.

The duo has of late been answering repeated questions pertaining to their past and breakup, and Ranbir yet again spoke out about his personal life in an interview to Rajat Sharma.

"It's an issue between two individuals, but people work on several theories and then disturb things," revealed the "Barfi" star on his split.

The actor went on to clarify that his mother, Neetu Singh had no role to play on the breakup.

"My mother loves me a lot and wants me to live my own life. My mother is also very fond of Deepika. So, at least this was not the reason for the split. I want to clarify, my mother was not the reason for the break-up."

Further, Ranbir's ex-flame Deepika came to the actor's defence adding, "We have been friends since our break-up and shall continue to remain friends."

Well, the 'friends always' tag seem rather difficult to accept as most are widely aware of Deepika's much publicised ridiculing of Ranbir Kapoor in Karan Johar's talk show.  

While the 30-year-old actor speaking on his previous equation with Deepika in context of the film, told Hindustan Times, "Being in a relationship has nothing to do with it, because we are only acting. Ye humare life ki documentary nahi chal rahi hai (it's not a documentary about our lives)."

To which fellow co-star Deepika added, "I don't think Ayan (Mukherjee) cast us together because of our history. He has done that because we are correct for our parts."

"I don't think being in a relationship helps a film. But the fact that we're friends would help because then we are not wasting that extra time getting to know the other person; we are already comfortable with each other."

Well, by the looks of "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" grand opening at the Box office, we can safely add that past chemistry indeed works magic onscreen!
