"Saif is a very encouraging and entertaining co-actor. He has a great sense of humour and it is always lovely working with him," Deepika told IANS.
The 27-year-old, who made her debut with Om Shanti Om in 2007, first worked with Saif in the 2009 hit romantic-drama Love Aaj Kal, in which their on-screen chemistry was appreciated by the audience.
Two years later, Prakash Jha's Aarakshan saw them as the lead pair and they teamed up again in last year's release Cocktail.
The popular on-screen couple also featured in the recently released action thriller Race 2, their fourth film together, which released on January 25.
