It was their first face-off since their much talked about, and bitter, break-up. And, awkwardness was palpable, when actors Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor bumped into each other in a TV studio in Mumbai recently.
The two met backstage on the set of
Koffee With Karan
. While Ranbir was leaving after his interview, Deepika was arriving for the filming of hers.
“We had no instructions to ensure they didn’t bump into each other. The entire unit was stunned when they came face to face. They smiled, shook hands and had a brief talk, but were formal with each other,” says an eyewitness from the unit.
Body language experts, after looking at photos from the meeting, feel there are unresolved issues between them. “Deepika seems anxious. There is evidence of some pain, which may come from unaddressed issues. Eye contact is being purposely avoided, Ranbir looks more comfortable than her,” says psychiatrist Deepak Raheja.
“Their body language is awkward. Their confused state of mind is evident in the way their hands and eyes are going in different directions,” says psychiatrist Sanjeev Kalra.
