Deepika Padukone will be re-uniting onscreen with Ranbir Kapoor in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani for the first time since their break-up and the actress says she is looking forward to work together again. The former couple, who met on the sets of their 2008 release Bachna Ae Haseeno, dated for a year before they split amid claims that Ranbir cheated on Deepika.
Talking to PTI, Deepika Padukone revealed her excitement about working with Ranbir Kapoor. Dips said, "I am really excited about the film, it is going to be real fun. Working with such a brilliant actor like Ranbir, that too in a love story, that's the kind of film I always wanted to do."
The actress added, "Moreover Ayan (director) is so young and talented and it was about time we did a film together. It is indeed great to be back with Ranbir in a film. Both of us were looking forward to a film that would justify our presence and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani has turned out to be one such film."
Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is being directed by Ayan Mukherjee and produced by Karan Johar. It is Mukherjee's second film after Ranbir Kapoor-Konkona Sen Sharma starrer Wake Up Sid. Deepika insists that the film is very different from her past projects and will bring out a different side to her.
"The film is special since it would be directed by Ayan Mukherjee. He is a mutual friend of Ranbir and myself. He pretty much knew that he had to do something special to bring us together on screen. I am ecstatic since this is going to be a true blue love story with an old school romance to it. I have never worked in a film like this before," said Deepika.
