Now, there weren't any sparks flying between the once-real life couple but the two seemed at ease with each other, proving that lovers can indeed be friends.
Deepika admitted that their last outing together four years ago, Bachna Ae Haseeno, when they were very much a couple didn't translate too well for them on reel, but that Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani has been the perfect platform to work with Ranbir yet again. Honest and forthcoming totally, Deepika admitted that she signed the film because she was keen to work with Ayan Mukherji and Ranbir and the story was too good to say no.
So how had the two changed in the past four years?
Ranbir: Deepika has become unpredictable. She is wild one moment and cool the other and sometimes none of the above, and it's refreshing to see that she has totally evolved as an actress.
Deepika: He has always been comfortable and at ease with the camera and that's only magnified over the years.
So Ranbir, what's with the unconventional names on screen - Barfi , Jordan in Rockstar, Pepsi in Besharam, Rocket Singh and now Bunny?
Ranbir: I feel an actor is known by the character he plays and if his name is something different people remember him. It's not that I call the directors and say call me Brownie or Tommy. They just feel funny names suit me.
So, do we see another film with Deepika?
The question did bring a suprised look on the actress's face as if wondering what would be Ranbir's response and it seemed, it was well within the curriculum for the day.
Ranbir: Ya, if she has the dates. She has no time, she is on the threshold of superstardom and if this movie does well then producers will come to us for more films. But I am sure people will like me and Deepika together.
Well , yes we do Ranbir.
