MUMBAI: Bollywood’s most famous ex-flames Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor have reunited for Ayan Mukherjee’s Summer 2013 film ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. Spotted at the trailer launch of the film yesterday, the duo shared warmer than warm vibes…
Said Ranbir, about the buzz surrounding their pairing post their much-publicised breakup: “I don’t take such talk seriously. We don’t come as a package. Deepika and I have moved on as individuals and as actors.”
Looking yuppie and chic in a white shirt, white jacket and jeans, and indulging in some ‘mad-boy’ fun, the young star ‘RK’ was all praise for his ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ co-star Deepika, “She is passionate and ambitious. When you come across someone who is as motivated as you are, the experience of working together is terrific. I share a deep comfort level with her.”
What everyone really wanted to know at the trailer launch was specifically if it was awkward to work with one’s ex. Ranbir quashed all these questions with a quick response, when he said, “Not at all. That would be unfair to the film. We are all professionals.”
Deepika on her part was silent, as she watched Ranbir heap praise upon her. She looked equally young and fresh and casually dressed in a simple black dress.
Ranbir even spoke about his character in the film, and how all his films have a strong romantic connect.
“In that film (‘Wake Up Sid’), my character was a slacker, but in ‘YJHD’, I’ve found myself. It deals with the relationship, heartbreak and ambition of four people. All my films have had a strong romantic tale underneath. This is the story of a guy who grows up from a 21-year-old boy to a 30-year-old man. It’s an urban film with characters that are closer to today’s youth.”
Also present at the fun-filled trailer launch were the film’s director, Ayan Mukherjee and producer, Karan Johar.
