Amid break-up rumour, Deepika-Ranveer spotted on a dinner date

Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have been spotted on a dinner date. The alleged lovebirds were clicked while making an exit from a plush restaurant in Mumbai. Both Deepika and Ranveer sizzle in blue. This was the couple’s first outing together post the news of their separation. They were seen at a pub in Lower Parel.

According to a source, “They both had a good time and they even hit the dance floor. Cricketer and Deepika’s ex- Yuvraj Singh was seen in their company last night.”

Earlier this month the news spread like a fire in a jungle that the ‘Ram Leela’ couple called it a quit. It is said that Deepika’s long distance relationship with Ranveer has taken a toll in their relationship.

A source informed earlier, “Ranveer and Deepika have been together for five years. They are no longer a couple. There was no bitter parting. They just drifted apart. They both tried to make it work with the help of their supportive families who wanted to ensure that the relationship made it to the altar. That was one of the problems with the relationship. Ranveer wanted a marriage. Deepika completely opposed the idea, arguing that marriage would affect her career at its prime.”

Ranveer remained cool and tried to bring things on track, the source added, “Even when they were shooting in separate continents, he would fly down to be with her whenever possible. He gave Deepika lots of space and never allowed any suspicion to creep in even when rumours of a relationship with Vin Diesel reached his ears.”

Whereas, another reason cited for their low public appearance was filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s strong diktat to keep away from media glare.

“In their personal space, the two continue to share a very comfortable relationship. There was some strain in their relationship in between, when both of them were busy shooting in different parts of the world — Ranveer in Paris for Befikre and Deepika in LA for xXx. It was also being said that Ranveer resented Deepika’s continuing closeness with her old friend Ranbir Kapoor. However, the two are very much in love and pretending to be estranged for the sake of the film. In fact, Deepika ignores Ranveer completely in public, leading to people assuming that they’ve split. They make separate entries into parties, and mingle only when the cameras are not watching. And when a photographer clicks them together, they get very upset.” the source said.
