Let’s be honest, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor have given us some of our favourite movies with their amazing on-screen chemistry. And even though they’ve had a history (they dated in the initial years of their career), Kapoor and Padukone still have a great friendship even today.
Kapoor who has been busy promoting his upcoming film, Shamshera, recently spoke about his Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani co-star, calling her a “veteran”. During an interview, the Brahmāstra actor spoke about the iconic scene he shared with Padukone in Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha. Kapoor said, “It was championed by Deepika’s performance. There are certain scenes that tilt towards an actor’s character, and the scene really had my character arch because he was churning, he was going through something. But I think the way Deepika performed it, what Deepika brought to the table, she made it come alive because you really felt pain. And because of that it was such a reactive scene,” he added.
Kapoor, who has worked with Padukone in Bachna Ae Haseeno, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, and Tamasha, shared that he has seen such a growth in her as an actor. “I’ve always had such a good time working with Deepika because we started off together. She’s grown so much as an actor, we did our second film together, called Bachna Ae Haseeno. And I worked with her again on Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. I don’t think I have ever been so surprised by an actor’s growth,” Kapoor shared. The Rockstar actor added, “By the time we reached Tamasha, she was a veteran, you know, and she was surprising me with each shot, and everything she was doing.”
Along with Shamshera, Kapoor is also gearing up for his highly anticipated film, Brahmāstra starring alongside Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. Recently, Alia Bhatt, who got married to Kapoor in April, announced that the couple will be expecting their first child with a sweet Instagram post.
