News of ex-flames sharing screen space in films is not unheard of in Bollywood, but their excessiveness of praise for each other - quite in contrast with their break-up spats - is definitely buzz worthy.
And this is exactly what Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone seem to be doing recently. Whether it be a promotional strategy for their upcoming movie "Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani" or a genuine initiative from both sides to move on in their respective lives, there's no denying that the two are carrying it off quite well.
Recently, Ranbir praised Deepika and said that he wanted to do more films with her. "There was no baggage. We have remained friends and both of us just loved our parts in this film," Press Trust Of India reported.
"It is great to see her growth as an actor and I look forward to working with her again."
Even Deepika made a few comments about her co-star which seemed to suggest that the two are still close to each other. "Ranbir is very possessive of me. He gets mad when people tease me with names of other actors that I work with," she said during the film's first look launch.
Apart from revealing his desire to work with Deepika, Ranbir also said that he doesn't himself to be hot or good looking. "I don't take any tags seriously. I don't consider myself hot or good looking. I just concentrate on my work."
Speaking about his character in "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" Ranbir said, "In a lot of ways it is even deeper than Wake Up Sid, very layered and nuanced. At its core, it is saying that happiness is real only if it is shared but somewhere along the way in life we tend to take our loved ones for granted,"
"It is the roles that choose me rather than the other way around,"
Post their break-up in 2009, this is Ranbir and Deepika's first film together.
"Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" is produced by Karan Johar and directed by Ayan Mukerji. The film is slated to release on 31 May.
