I share a comfort level with Deepika: Ranbir Kapoor

Mumbai, Mar 19, 2013, (PTI) :

Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who has teamed up with this ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone in 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', says there was no awkwardness while working together as he shares a comfort level with her.

'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' led gossip mongers speaking about their getting back together as a couple. But Ranbir is unperturbed.

"I don't take such talk seriously. We don't come as a package. Deepika and I have moved on as individuals and as actors," Ranbir said in a statement here.


But isn't it awkward to work with her? Ranbir says, "No... not at all. That would be unfair to the film. We are all professionals."

The 30-year-old, who earlier worked with Deepika in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno', is full praises for the actress.

"She is passionate and ambitious. When you come across someone who is as motivated as you are, the experience of working together is terrific. I share a deep comfort level with her," he said.

After working in Siddharth Anand's romantic film 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' in 2008, Ranbir went on to play a musician in 'Rockstar', a deaf-mute guy in 'Barfi!' and a politician in 'Rajneeti', among others.

But he mostly stayed away from typical romances. 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' will see him revisit the genre. Ranbir argues that this isn't his comeback to romantic cinema.

"All my films have had a strong romantic tale underneath. This is the story of a guy
who grows up from a 21-year-old boy to a 30-year-old man. It's an urban film with characters that are closer to today's youth," Ranbir said.

Also, Ranbir is back to working with director Ayan Mukherjee after four years ('Wake Up Sid' in 2009).

"In that film, my character was a slacker, but in this film I have found myself. It deals with the relationship, heartbreak and ambitions of four people," he said.

Produced by Karan Johar, the film will release on May 31.
