Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone has openly called her "Bajirao Mastani" co-star Ranveer Singh "hot" on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Deepika, 29, who has always been tight-lipped about her alleged romace with Ranveer, finally reciprocated the fondness as she tweeted the actor's solo poster along with heart-eyed emoticons.
"Hello Hotness! #BajiraoMastani @RanveerOfficial," she captioned the pic.
The "Piku" star and Ranveer, 30, who came close during the shoot of "Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela", had earlier praised each others work on Twitter.
In "Bajirao Mastani", Ranveer plays the mighty Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao while Deepika will be seen donning the role of his second wife Mastani.
Also starring Priyanka Chopra as Kashi Bai (Bajirao's first wife), the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film will hit theatres on December 18.
