Mumbai: People tend to bond at times of crisis. Deepika Padukone, who parted ways with ex-boyfriend Yuvraj Singh, has suddenly decided to rekindle their friendship.

If reports are to be believed, the actress recently touched base with Yuvraj, who has been diagnosed with a non-malignant tumour in his lung, to inquire about his health.

Meanwhile, sources close to Yuvi have confirmed that Deepika’s gesture is more than helping ‘Mr. Sixer’ recuperate, rather fast!

Speaking to a daily, a friend of Yuvraj said, “Deepika and Yuvraj hadn’t parted amicably. They even avoided each other on more than one occasion. However, recently Deepika picked up the phone and called him. Yuvraj was pleasantly surprised. The conversation did not last too long. After a few days she again told him ‘Get well soon’.”

The reason for the Deepika-Yuvraj split was believed to be Yuvraj’s over-possessive attitude. Also, reportedly, after the success of ‘Om Shanti Om’, Deepika got too busy and could not give Yuvraj too much time. “This peeved Yuvi no end and he felt that he wasn’t getting enough attention from her,” added the friend.

The leggy beauty broke off with Yuvraj in 2008. Soon, she started dating Ranbir Kapoor. Currently, the actress is going around with Siddhartha Mallya.

However, a friend defending Dips said, “Deepika and Siddhartha are in a very happy space. Deepika’s call to Yuvraj is a friendly gesture. Deepika doesn’t brood over the past and lives in the present. People move on and evolve.”
