There was hardly any gap between the time when we got to know about Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s relationship and the break-up that followed. It was a matter of months before the duo split ways.
If we believe Miss Padukone, she learnt about Ranbir's flirtatious nature through a common friend and the relationship became history.
Ranbir, after all, is a hot-blooded Kapoor. He is a natural charmer as far as women go and sooner or later, Deepika would have heard about his flirtations, especially when Ranbir isn't too modest about it either. Common friends carried the news to Deepika, perhaps adding a bit of tadka for flavour. Immediate speculations point to Ranbir's chemistry with Katrina Kaif during the shoot of Rajneeti. But Katrina was not the only girl in the picture. Numerous stories about Nandita Mahtani and many other girls floated in the air, making it impossible for Deepika to continue with the relationship.
The crack first became evident at Shabina Khan's birthday party where the two sat in different corners of the room. They had a somewhat unfriendly break up and the buzz is they haven't spoken to each other since.
Deepika is strong person with set goals and a professional attitude. Not having many friends, it seems she is an introvert for whom opening up is a big task. On the contrary, Ranbir Kapoor can’t stop spreading his charm. An outgoing person, he has many friends and is a pukka Punjabi brat. This certainly doesn’t indicate towards a good match. Trouble seems to be etched from the get go. How were we to expect them to live happily ever after?
Deepika is a Capricorn, hence the tarot cards for her are Devil and the Queen of Pentacles. These cards make her ambitious, resourceful and a person who needs commitment. Thus, how could she tolerate Ranbir’s straying ways? The Bachna E Haseeno star is a Libran and his cards are Justice, the Empress and the Queen of Swords. These cards make him a balanced, objective, sensual and a knowledgeable person. He knows what he is doing and will not change his attitude for anyone. Looking at the obvious clash in their personality, anybody could have predicted that the two weren’t meant to be together for too long.
Post splitting, both stars carried on with their life, with Deepika finding the charismatic Siddharth Mallya and Ranbir happy with his freedom to be with whoever he wants. Meanwhile, after a long time of avoiding each other and back-stabbing comments in different talk-shows, it seems the duo has now matured. They seem to have buried the past and moved on. Recently, they have been seen hanging around with the same set of friends and in fact, have also expressed their openness to work together again. If recent reports are to be believed, the pair will be seen together again in Ayan Mukherjee’s next.
