Deepika Padukone has been in a tizzy ever since Shammi Kapoor asked her out for coffee via Twitter, says a media report.
She is very fond of the veteran actor despite her break- up with actor Ranbir Kapoor ( Shammi is Ranbir's grand uncle).
Talking about it Deepika says, “ I was very excited when Shammiji messaged me on Twitter. I didn't know he had messaged me because I was busy performing for the IPL opening ceremony. After my performance, I was flooded with messages in my BlackBerry Messenger and Twitter about Shammiji tweeting me. Till then, I didn't even know Shammiji was on the website as his name comes as
Shamsher Raj.” Deepika says she is very excited when Shammi asked her over for coffee. “ I remember him as the Paan Parag uncle and in the Yahoo song in Junglee. I have always been a big fan of his. It was really sweet of him to message me. I thanked him immediately. I am jumping at the opportunity to meet him for coffee. I have finished the first schedule of Pradeep Sarkar's Lafange Parinde and now starting on Kunal Kohli's Break Ke Baad. After I complete my shooting, I will go out on my date with Shammiji.” Deepika has recently changed her Twitter ID from @ DeepikaCalling to @ deepikapadukone . “ Now it's verified too and I have finally got my proper name.”
Last week, Shammi Kapoor had tweeted, “ Hi Deepika — would like you to communicate maybe could meet over a cup of coffee at my place — love, Shammi uncle.” And after Deepika had performed at the inaugural function of IPL at Mumbai he had tweeted again, “ You were the best that IPL offered today— Love.”
