Ranbir Kapoor is one of those few actors, who don’t have any issues working with his former girlfriends and we have seen it. While there are many who choose never to work together after they have called it quits (I shall not name them but you know who), Ranbir is one such individual who has worked with both Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif post break-up. Looks like he knows what his audience wish to see and so, he chooses to keep his personal differences aside. That’s like a sport. Not just him but his ex-girlfriends too have no problem working with him.
Since we have seen Ranbir and Deepika share a great chemistry in their films – Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha, who could say that they have broken up? Not just they were great when they appeared together on the silver screen but the two were doing their best to wow their fans even off-screen. Apart from entertaining the people at their promotional events or media interaction, the two went an extra mile to openly speak about their relationship status post break up and what they mean for one another. They just did not let anyone witness any awkwardness between them even if there was any. People still go gaga over the magic that the duo weave on the screen. If you recall any of their interviews, you’ll know.
Ranbir, in one of his interviews, said that he loved Deepika ‘like family’. “It’s warm, it’s about care, about being proud of her. The facet of love, care and respect has changed, but changed for the better,” he said. On the other hand, Deepika said, “He is someone I have always loved. I will always be extremely possessive and protective about him.” She went on to say how they have that comfort level with each other where they can share anything without hesitating. You can actually see that bond here; they don’t seem to share any cold vibes, do they? (ALSO READ: Ranbir Kapoor Apologises For Mansplaining Katrina Kaif During Jagga Jasoos Promotional Interviews)
Unlike Deepika-Ranbir bond, post break-up, Katrina and Ranbir, indeed shared cold vibes. It is so evident in all their promotional events and press conferences. In fact, Ranbir was seen taking a dig at Katrina right from the launch of Jagga Jasoos song – Galti Se Mistake and that continued in their various interviews and reality shows, where they were seen together to promote their upcoming film – Jagga Jasoos.
Initially, Katrina was not even a part of the promotional activities; only after all those headlines they had made, she decided to be a part of it to put the speculations of ‘all is not well between them’ to rest. I recall how the Tamasha actor took a jibe at Kat’s acting at one of the events. Reportedly, he said, “I have overacted, yes. But Katrina? I don’t think she has ever done that. There have been instances where Kat hasn’t acted at all in the film but never overacted.” Ouch! That’s mean.
Even otherwise, Ranbir, many a time did not let Kat talk much during the promotional rounds. He has been seen mansplaining the actress ever since Jagga Jasoos promotions. Speaking of their chemistry, whether or not they will be able to recreate the Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani effect at the box office is something that we’ll know in just about a week. Till then you take a look at the awkward space they share on stage here.
