Deepika Padukone apes Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Break Ke Baad’?
Mumbai: Jilted lass Deepika Padukone is all set to relive her bitter experiences on reel for her character in ‘Break Ke Baad’ is closely modelled on none other than her ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
In ‘Break Ke Baad’, Deepika plays the character of a commitment-phobic girl – Aalia, which mirrors her ex-beau Ranbir, who is infamous for his commitment phobic ways in Bollywood. Deepika and Ranbir were in a serious two years relationship before the Kapoor scion ditched the Bangalorean beauty.
Apparently, when Deepika heard ‘Break Ke Baad’ director Danish Aslam’s narration, she couldn’t believe her ears when she saw the uncanny resemblance between Aalia and Ranbir. After much though and serious consideration, Deepika took the role as a challenge.
Talking to a daily, a close friend of Deepika said, “Knowingly or unknowingly, she has added some nuances to her character in the film that are straight out of her past love affair with Ranbir. Besides, when an actor gets into the skin of her character, she picks up traits from people she has known personally.”
When enquired whether it was an easy character to play, Deepika’s friend added, “Well, it was easy in parts, but when the scenes became very emotional and intense, it was difficult.”
Well, that’s what we call a sweet revenge!
