A promotional event for the upcoming film Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani saw Ranbir Kapoor in attendance with Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapoor where, the actor talked about his experience of working with ex-flame Deepika Padukone. While there was absolutely no indication of a patch-up, the actor was all praise for Deepika’s acting and career. “She has grown immensely as an actor in the last few years. She added so much more to the movie. But when I choose a movie, I look at it as a package”, said Ranbir.
When he was asked about the experience of working with a former lover, he told the press, “I don’t want to sound like a love guru. It’s a notion in your head that it can get awkward. Working with your ex can be an amazing thing”. He went on to add, “You need to have closure in your head. You both have to reach the kind of understanding that what you shared was special and that you all have moved on. Once you have that, rest is easy,” .
Although Deepika wasn’t present at the event, she told a tabloid later, that, she agreed with Ranbir Kapoor and expressed her disappointment at not being able to attend the event which was held in Dubai. “I’m so disappointed that I couldn’t be there in Dubai, one of my favourite places, But I hope the others made up for my absence. Like Ranbir said, both need to have reached a point where they have moved on”, said Deepika Padukone.
The two stars have never shown contempt for each other ever since they broke up three years ago, in 2010 and have no qualms in working together. Their film is slated for release next week.
