While Deepika was flattered by Ranbir's simplicity, patience and the fact that he is not a complicated person, the thing that got Ranbir attracted towards Deepika was her positive approach in life.
Gradually, these meetings, hanging out, dinners and catching over coffee became frequent. Ranbir and Deepika were friends for six months before they started seeing each other.
Seemingly, Ranbir was quite upset the way news channels made a big deal out of it, and stated that it was hard to deal with it. He even said that being private people, it was hard to see that moment repeatedly being flashed on screen.
The Kapoor family took offence and Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor immediately counter-attacked Deepika in a city tabloid interview, while mom Neetu maintained a dignified silence.
Also, since both Ranbir and Deepika were starting their acting career at that point, no one actually thought of marriage at a serious note. However, it was surely on the cards at some point of time.
While promoting YJHD, Ranbir got fed up and said it loud and clear that there is more to the movie besides his romance rumours with Deepika and people should concentrate on that.
Surprisingly, it is post their break-up, Ranbir and Deepika have come closer than they were during their relationship and they respect each other a lot more now.
On their first date, Ranbir and Deepika also watched the movie 'Mr Bean's Holiday' at PVR Cinemas in Juhu. This was followed by a long drive and finally Ranbir dropped Deepika home.
Years after their break up, Ranbir and Deepika claim to be great friends today. While shooting for their latest release, they were seen sharing some candid moments on the sets.
In all probability, this is for the first time in the history of Hindi cinema that an ex-couple (Ranbir and Deepika in this case) who got separated have come together to act opposite each other in a film.
When Ranbir-Deepika's public kiss became the hottest gossip, Ranbir came out in open to clarify that he was meeting Deepika after a month at the Bangkok airport & he just hugged and gave her a peck without realizing there were cameras around.
Soon, it was all over that Ranbir's growing fondness for Katrina has spoiled things between him and Deepika. There were even reports of him cheating Deepika. And then the sudden news of their break up spread like an untamed fire in Bollywood.
Furthermore, rumours were ripe that maybe Ranbir's mommy Neetu Kapoor is the reason behind their breakup.
There was a strong buzz that it's because of their off screen chemistry and love affair that Ranbir and Deepika looked extremely amazing on-screen in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' and it even enhanced their performance.
Even when it came to families, nothing was hidden about their relationship. However, Ranbir's mom Neetu Kapoor was never sure of Deepika as Kapoor clan's bahu and she kept calling their relationship a mere fling.
Supposedly, both Ranbir and Deepika were quite comfortable talking about their past relationships with each other. And both shared a level of understanding and trust as they are still friends with some of their exes.
The fact that Deepika is really fond of music, the first gift Ranbir brought for her was a piano. And Deepika's gift for Ranbir was a MacBook Air. Interestingly, Deepika also used to buy clothes for Ranbir.
At the same time, it was also rumoured that Deepika and Farhan Akhtar's chemistry became a reason for their break-up. Apparently, it was during the shoot of this film that Deepika and Ranbir decided to call it quits.
