Deepika Padukone chooses Ranveer Singh over Amitabh Bachchan

Deepika Padukone’s effortless portrayal of Piku along with Amitabh Bachchan’s winning act as Baba catapulted the film Piku into becoming one of the biggest hits of 2015. But at the DVD launch, the film’s leading lady was nowhere to be seen.

Deepika’s absence has yet another time fuelled rumours about things not being right between her and Big B. It all started when Deepika did not invite the legendary actor for the Piku success party she organised. While Mr Bachchan revealed in an interview to dna that he was not even invited to the party, Deepika too gave an explanation as to how she forgot to add her on-screen Baba to the invitee list.

We don’t know what the truth is but Deepika’s absence at the event made heads turn and conjectures have already started about the same. When asked, Shoojit Sircar explained, “Deepika is not in the country right now and we had already planned the event hence we could not change the date.”

For all those who don’t know the actress was last spotted in London with beau Ranveer Singh. The Bajirao Mastani couple had zoomed off on a romantic getaway to London to ring in Ranveer’s birthday together. Hence she could not make it to the DVD launch event. Like they say, everything’s fair in love and war!
