Ranbir Kapoor chooses Katrina Kaif over Deepika Padukone

Ranbir Kapoor may not be on very good terms with Katrina Kaif post their break-up earlier this year, but he has admitted that the actress played an important role in his life inspiring and motivating him.

Ranbir was in a relationship with Katrina for six years, and before that he had also dated Deepika Padukone, but he continues to be good friends with the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress.

However, the ‘Rockstar’ actor recently revealed that if he were to choose between his two ex-girlfriend, he will go with Katrina. Ranbir said this in Neha Dhupia’s podcast show ‘#NoFilterNeha’. The actor reportedly said that Katrina had a bigger influence in his life. He admitted that the 33-year-old actress played a major role in motivating him through thick and thin.

Ever since their split, both Ranbir and Katrina seldom spoke about it publicly and maintained distance from each other. They duo cleverly avoid crossing each other’s paths in parties and events, by arriving at different times – one of them leaving the place before the other arrives. However, in compliance with their professional commitments the ex-lovers are working for their upcoming film ‘Jagga Jasoos’ which they began shooting when they were still together. The Anurag Basu directorial is slated to hit screens on April 7 next year.

On the other hand, Ranbir started dating Deepika when they were working together for ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’. Deepika had even got a tattoo of Ranbir’s initials on her nape, but their relationship ended when Ranbir allegedly cheated on her. But now, the two are best buddies and have also worked together post break-up in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and ‘Tamasha’.

Ranbir will be next seen in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ romancing the beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma. Also starring Fawad Khan, the film will hit the screens on October 28.
