At the screening of Imran Khan's film 'Delhi Belly', Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor came face-to-face with ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone, says a media report.
When Ranbir was on his way to Yash Raj Studios for the screening, he probably didn't anticipate that two surprises were awaiting him.
First, he came face-to-face with Deepika Padukone. Second, he was amazed that the special invitees enjoyed his rival's movie so much.
Ranbir had been messaging Imran saying he loved the Bhaag D K Bose song and that he was looking forward to the movie. So letting their proxy war be forgotten, Imran invited Ranbir for the movie.
The report quotes a source: "Imran was previously in Delhi for the film's promotion. So he told Ranbir that he'd invite him for a show as soon as he returned to Mumbai.
"And since he returned late Tuesday, he decided to have a screening on Wednesday and invited Ranbir, Karan Johar, Rohan Sippy and some other folk."
However, it seems he had forgotten to tell him that Deepika had been invited too.
So when Ranbir sauntered in with Karan, he was astonished to see that Dippy was there with father, Prakash Padukone and sister Anisha.
"But Ranbir was very graceful and he spoke very warmly with her," says the source.
The source adds, "Deepika had flown down from London where she was shooting for Homi Adajania's Cocktail with Saif Ali Khan. She had told Imran that she wanted to see the film. She had got a couple of days off, so she came."
A little while after the screening started, the source reveals that Ranbir was observing how the others were reacting to the onscreen proceedings.
"Maybe he didn't expect people to enjoy the film so much," says the source, adding that when the lights came on at the end of the film, Ranbir's expression was one of shock and awe.
"So much so that some people present were even sniggering among themselves that suddenly, Ranbir wasn't able to handle the competition," states the source.
However, the actor was quick to regain his composure as he stepped out of the auditorium.
