No Issues With Ranbir: Deepika Padukone
Ranbir Kapoor - Deepika Padukone's on-off relationship continues to make news. The duo looked great in ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, but weren't paired thereafter. Reportedly, with their personal equations undergoing a change, the actors have decided against working together. "Completely untrue," Deepika sets the record straight, "I would love to work with Ranbir. And Ranbir is a professional too. These are mere rumours and shouldn't be entertained." So why haven't the duo signed any film together? "Ranbir and I have decided that till such time we aren't offered a script that inspires us, we won't work together. I am keen to work with him. So is he. We looked great in BACHNA AE HASEENO," she tells me.
While Deepika started her career with 'seniors' like SRK [OM SHANTI OM], Akshay Kumar [CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA] and Saif Ali Khan [LOVE AAJ KAL], she's now cast alongside Gen X actors - Abhishek Bachchan [KHELE HUM JEE JAAN SE], Farhan Akhtar [KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK], Neil Nitin Mukesh [Yash Raj's untitled film] and Imran Khan [BREAK KE BAAD].
Incidentally, she will have as many as five releases this year, if you count the above-mentioned four films as also HOUSE FULL, which teams Akshay and Deepika again. "Yes, 2010 is an eventful year for me. I hope to live up to the expectations that people have from me, after LOVE AAJ KAL," she smiles.
