Deepika Padukone has said that she and Ranbir Kapoor are friends for life.
The 27-year-old actress, who was previously in a long-term relationship with the Barfi! actor, stars with Kapoor in the forthcoming Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
Speaking to IANS, she said: "Ranbir and I were in a relationship. But we are friends now and will be for life. We know each other well and we had a lovely time shooting [the film].
"Moreover, we were more like our characters than ourselves on the sets. I forget about my personal life when I am in character."
Padukone last starred with Kapoor in the 2008 release Bachna Ae Haseeno.
The actress, who is currently shooting for Chennai Express with Shah Rukh Khan and Ram Leela with Ranveer Singh, has said she enjoys playing complex characters on screen.
The star described winning the Critics' award for 'Best Actress' at the TOIFAs as the most memorable moment of her life.
Directed by Ayan Mukerji, the Karan Johar-produced Yeh Jawaani Hain Deewani also stars Aditya Roy Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin. The film releases on May 31.
