Few months back speculation was rife that Bollywood’s hottest couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone were facing trouble in their relationship and that things were not going well for them.
While over the months the whispers seemed to have died down, the fact as to why they were fighting in the first place was still not clear.
Over the last few months, the couple were seen distanced from each other with Deepika being away in the US filming for her upcoming film XXX: Return of Xander Cage, while Ranveer was busy in India filming for Befikre.
While in the past this distance has never been a problem, a report in a leading tabloid now suggests that the villain behind keeping this ‘distance’ is director Aditya Chopra, who had instructed Ranveer to avoid frequent PDAs with Deepika.
Further the report also suggested that this was nothing but the usual PR stunt so as to maintain a certain “image” for the actor.
The stunt was done to keep the focus on the film and away from Ranveer’s love life which constantly makes the news.
The reason why Aditya asked Ranveer to do so was because the movie is about a ‘naughty romance’ between him and Vaani and his constant PDA with Deepika could take the focus away from the movie.
In the movie, Ranveer plays the role of a raunchy lover-boy and thus Aditya needed him to be seen as an actor who is single and thus ready to mingle.
The movie is scheduled to release on December 9 and the report indicates that this so-called ‘ban’ was to last till 15 days before the film’s release.
Thus, with just days left for the movie to release, Ranveer and Deepika were once again seen holding hands and very much in love at Ambani’s recent party.
