Actor Deepika Padukone, who will be re-uniting on-screen with ex-flame, Ranbir Kapoor, in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, says she is looking forward to work with him again.
“I am really excited about the film, it is going to be real fun. I have always wanted to work with a brilliant actor like Ranbir in a love story. Moreover, Ayan (director Ayan Mukherjee) is so young and talented, and it was about time we did a film together,” says Padukone, 25, who dated Kapoor for a year before they split amid claims that Kapoor cheated on her. However, the actor insists that the two are very good friends and talk to each other often.
“It is indeed great to be back with Ranbir in a film. Both of us were looking forward to a film that would justify our presence and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has turned out to be one such film,” says the actor, who insists that the movie is special.
“The film is special since it would be directed by Ayan. He is a mutual friend of Ranbir and myself and pretty much knew that he had to do something special to bring us together on screen,” says Padukone, adding, “I am ecstatic. This is going to be a true blue love story with an old school romance to it. I have never worked in a film like this before,” she says.
Padukone claims she is happy about Kapoor’s success. “I know how excited Ranbir was when he started off in the industry. He has put so much into his films and as a result his success means a lot to him. He is happy with the fact that his hard work has paid off.”
