Ranbir Kapoor praises Deepika Padukone: “She has grown so much”
Bollywood’s mega stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone used to be the favourite couple of B-town. Even after breaking up, the two of them have always been able to remain cordial with one another.
Recently, during the promotions of two of his much-awaited films, Shamshera and Brahmastra, Ranbir Kapoor opened up about working with Deepika Padukone.
Talking about filming the song Agar Tum Saath Ho, he 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. What I was doing, she was reacting, what she was doing, I was reacting.”
He added, “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 Jawani hai Deewani. I don’t think I have ever been so surprised by an actor’s growth. Because I know Deepika so closely, I was so impressed. 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.”
Both the actors seem to have settled well in their personal lives as well. Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor recently announced he is expecting his first child with Bollywood star Alia Bhatt. The couple tied the knot in April this year.
