A special screening of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani was held at a suburban theatre for the film’s cast and crew. Deepika Padukone had arrived with her parents and reportedly won a lot of compliments for her performance.
But the surprise of surprises for her was when Ranbir Kapoor’s mom Neetu Kapoor met her in the foyer and gave her a warm hug and congratulated her for her acting.
Apparently, though there were no negative vibes between Deepika and Neetu Kapoor now that the young actress is no longer dating Ranbir, but she must have been a tad taken aback with this show of affection and appreciation by Ranbir’s mom.
In fact, even Ranbir is of the view that Deepika Padukone has grown as an actress by leaps and bounds. He recently said in an interview that Deepika is the first actress to intimidate him when he’s facing the camera with her.
“I always expected from Deepika to reach very high levels, but I had no idea that she will become such a fine actress so soon. She is the first actress in front of whom I am a bit intimidated,” Ranbir told IANS in an interview.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is directed by Ayan Mukerji and has hit theatres today.
