Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh‘s wedding reception was a star-studded affair. While the film industry’s who’s who turned up to wish the newlyweds, actor Ranbir Kapoor‘s presence was sorely missed. The actor shares his past with Deepika; the two were in a romantic relationship and this was considered as one of the reasons behind him not attending the wedding reception. Even his rumoured girlfriend, actor Alia Bhatt couldn’t make it to the bash. A lot was discussed about the same and now, Deepika herself has come out to speak on the matter.

The actress talked to Filmfare and mentioned that she hasn’t had any word with Ranbir post her wedding. She revealed she talked to him before the wedding and she doesn’t find his absence from reception surprising. Deepika said that she knows Ranbir and that’s the kind of relationship they both share. The actress said, “We’ve not spoken. I mean, we spoke before the reception but we have not spoken after. But, that’s him. I’m not surprised at all. But, that’s the relationship we share and that’s the beauty of that relationship; so much is said without saying much at all”.

Among many reasons that surfaced in Bollywood’s grapevine about Ranbir’s absence from DeepVeer’s reception, him being busy with the shoot of Brahmastra was also the one. A report in Pinkvilla suggested that both Ranbir and Alia were shooting with Ayan Mukerji for the film on a day-night schedule and therefore, the two felt too-exhausted-to attend a party.

The report quoted a source saying, “The duo was invited for the reception, however, before we assume the worst, let us clarify that their busy schedule kept the duo away from attending all-nighter. Alia and Ranbir along with Ayan Mukerji did a 20-hour shift for Brahmastra on Saturday and hence couldn’t make it for the bash”.
