Director Ayan Mukherjee, who has paired ex-couple Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in his upcoming film, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, says he appreciates the attitude the two actors show towards work and that the two are comfortable working with each other.
Before they split, Ranbir and Deepika were last seen together in Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008). The film has created quite a buzz from the time it went on floors primarily because of the pairing of ex-flames Ranbir and Deepika. “Their dating earlier was not a big deal, they were a couple, there were a lot of controversies later like the Koffee with Karan episode and etc. But today there is nothing like that... they are now good friends and cooperative co-stars,” says Ayan.
He adds, “They are very comfortable with each other. It makes me feel good about their attitude towards work.”
The promo of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ends with Deepika’s dialogue — ‘Mujhe Tumse Pyar Ho Jayega... Phir Se’ — to Ranbir. “A lot has been said about Deepika’s line in the promo. There is a lot of excitement among the audience and I am happy about it. It was part of the story when I wrote that line. It comes as part of the scene, it is very natural. There are many points in the film where people will feel they would have been good together,” he says.
