Mumbai: 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.
