Deepika Padukone is only one film old; she made her debut opposite Shahrukh Khan in Om Shanti Om. But it seems that the damsel is more in the news for her personal life than her professional life. After Ranbir recently admitted in public that he is dating Deepika, she too decided to acknowledge her feelings publicly. Deepika admits that she is dating Ranbir. However the confession from both Ranbir and Deepika seems to be coming at an opportune time, just when their film together, Bachna Ae Haseeno has been almost completed. 

Deepika may have been linked to many guys in the past but today she is finally ready to admit that she is seeing Ranbir, Deepika said "Yes, Ranbir and I are seeing each other." Deepika claims that she and Ranbir realised that they wanted to be with each other after spending time together in Australia shooting for Siddharth's film. However Deepika rubbishes talk that she and Ranbir were earlier seeing each other and then broke up only to be reunited now. She clears the air saying "Whenever Ranbir and I met earlier, the media started speculating. We used to meet often but that was because we were getting to know each other better. However we later drifted apart because we both got busy with our respective shooting schedules. Why would we hide it if we were in love then? Today, we realise that we are compatible and so we have no qualms in telling the world that we are in love." Earlier Deepika was linked to cricketer Yuvraj Singh and the two of them supposedly even spent their birthdays with each other. But Deepika refuses to dwell on the past saying "I don't want to talk abut that. I am not commenting on my past." Deepika did maintain that she is still in touch with her ex-boyfriend model Nihar Pandya and his family. She said "Nihar's parents have taken care of me and treated me like family. I am in touch with Nihar and his parents." 

On the professional front too, Deepika seems to have a lot happening. She has just wrapped up Yash Raj film Bachna Ae Haseeno where she stars alongside Ranbir and actresses Bipasha Basu and Minnisha Lamba. The film is directed by Siddharth Anand and is slated to be a romantic comedy. Deepika is currently shooting for Nikhil Advani's film Chandini Chowk to China Town where she has been paired opposite Akshay Kumar. It is an action film and she will be learning jijitsu, a form of martial arts for the film. Deepika also has Saif Ali Khan's home production where she has been paired opposite Saif in a film to be directed by Imtiaz Ali. So the lass seems to have a pretty full schedule, so when will she get to spend time with her new beau Ranbir? Deepika claims "We still have a song that we have to shoot for Siddharth's film. And then there's the phone, as we want to spend every free moment with each other."
