It's no secret that Deepika Padukone's abrupt ditching of Race 2 has left a bad taste in the mouth for Ramesh Taurani and his crew. But now it seems that the Om Shanti Om actor was even ignored by her former co-stars John Abraham and Saif Ali, both of whom she is supposed to have shared a great rapport with.
John Abraham, who had reportedly been very close to Deepika on the sets of their recent film Desi Boyz, snubbed her completely. "John ignoring Deepika came as a shock," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
While Taurani filed a complaint with CINTAA (Cine and TV Artists Association) against her, Deepika seemed rather unfazed and even hugged him at the wedding. "He was taken aback. He did not reciprocate too warmly," a source told the tabloid.
While the Race 2 actor did not officially say so, Taurani told the tabloid, "Saif is with me on this issue."
Well, while the CINTAA jury is still out on Deepika's career decision, we hope she doesn't have to pay a very heavy price for accepting Rajinikanth's Kochadaiyaan.
