With a string of hits behind her, there are a lot of expectations from Deepika Padukone. Much is expected from her next film Tamasha which re-teams her with her former lover and hit co-star from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ranbir Kapoor.
At the film’s trailer launch, Deepika explained why their pair has remained exclusive and hasn’t signed on several films together. “We don’t want to come together in a film for the heck of it. We have done films before and they have done well because they were really good. Every film has to be good enough for the two of us to come together.”
There is obviously a lot of affection still alive between the two. Deepika spoke of ‘loving’ Ranbir in Barfi and when asked what she would give him on his birthday on September 28, she laughed, “I think he has everything. All I can give him is good wishes, love and happiness.” However, she was smart enough to not get drawn into comparison of her chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor and her rumoured current beau Ranveer Singh with whom she has had a success in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela. She hedged, “It depends on the kind of film and roles we do and it’s also in the hands of the director to extract the performance from us. There is a difference in the chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor’s and me in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha, and Ranveer Singh’s chemistry with me in Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani.”
