Reams have been written about Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s rekindled on-screen chemistry and also off-screen bonhomie on the sets of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. Imtiaz Ali’s next is said to be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, and Deepika shares a great rapport with both the director and producer. Of late, Imtiaz is also seen catching up with Deepika on various occasions, so rumours are bound to fly.
Talking about his recent meetings with Deepika Padukone, Imtiaz tells a daily that they meet not necessarily to discuss work, but didn’t deny the reports either. “Just because I meet Deepika from time-to-time does not mean I’m casting her for my next film. But I’m neither accepting nor denying the news,” Imtiaz Ali is quoted as saying. Ahem! there is no smoke without fire, Imtiaz!
After a much publicized break-up of Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor, no one had really thought that the former lovers will unite on big screen, but like any two professionals they didn’t let their past be a stumbling block in their career and agreed to be a part of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, produced by Dharma Productions. The movie is releasing on May 31, 2013.
