All is well! Ranveer-Deepika spotted together at airport


Turns out that the speculations of break-up between Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone isn’t true after all. The lovebirds were spotted together at the airport leaving for an undisclosed location.

The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ co-stars were seen being driven to the terminal in an airport coach. Ranveer wore a purple tee and denim bermudas, and from his expressions, he didn’t seem too pleased to be clicked. Deepika looked stylish in a black top and maintained a poised composure. Both of them sported shades.    

Rumours were rife that Ranveer and Deepika have grown apart and Deepika’s closeness to her ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ co-star Vin Diesel was said to be the reason. Contrary reports also said that ‘Padmavati’ director Sanjay Leela Bhansali forbade the off-screen couple to avoid making public appearances together until the film’s promotions begin.

The split rumours were fuelled further when Ranveer didn’t accompany his alleged ladylove at the recent HT Style Awards. However, a source close to the couple told DNA that Ranveer missed the event as he was recuperating from a dental surgery.

“None of this (split rumours) is true. Ranveer could not attend as he had wisdom tooth surgery and is still healing from it. He had informed the organisers beforehand that he could not attend,” the source was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, the couple has teamed up with Bhansali for the third time for the latter’s magnum opus ‘Padmavati’, where both the actors play rivals. Deepika plays the upright queen Padmavati who commits johar (self-immolation) when Ranveer’s character Allaudin Khilji, smitten by Padmavati’s beauty and intellect, attacks her kingdom. Shahid Kapoor plays Padmavati’s husband Rawal Ratan Singh.

The makers are facing trouble in shooting the movie as certain groups alleged that Bhansali has distorted history and had even assaulted the filmmaker and vandalised the ‘Padmavati’ sets. Team ‘Padmavati’ is racing against the clock to get the film ready in time to meet its November 17 release date.
