Deepika returns from US; beau Ranveer receives her at airport


Deepika Padukone, who was in the US for the post-production of her Hollywood debut flick ‘xXx Return of Xander Cage’, has returned. The actress was received at the airport by her boyfriend Ranveer Singh.

Deepika looked chic as ever in a pair of denims teamed with a white tee and an over coat as she came out of the terminal, while Ranveer was spotted waiting to greet his ladylove in his car. The actor was sporting all casuals.

The shutterbugs went berserk clicking away pictures of the lovebirds. Deepika came towards the waiting car and greeted her beau. The photographers managed to capture Deepika and Ranveer sharing a warm hug in the backseat of the car, where the ‘Bajirao’ was waiting for his ‘Mastani’.

Deepika and Ranveer make for an adorable couple not only on-screen, but off it as well. They have worked together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela - Ram Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, and will be teaming up again for ‘Padmavati’.

In fact, it is said that when Ranveer and Bhansali had some differences over ‘Padmavati’ and the director was contemplating to replace the actor, Deepika intervened and played the peacemaker between the duo.

The period drama will see Deepika in the titular role of the queen, while Ranveer will play the grey shaded character of Sultan Alauddin Khilji who is obsessed by Padmavati’s beauty and intellect. However, in the film, the two characters never meet.

‘Padmavati’ which also stars Shahid Kapoor, will go on floors soon and is slated to hit screens in December next year.
