Koffee with Karan drama: On one of the episodes of the infamous Koffee with Karan, Deepika and another rumoured Ranbir-ex (Sonam Kapoor) took several potshots at him. Deepika said she’d like to gift Ranbir a box of condoms, while Sonam said he  badly needed a stylist. This resulted in a backlash from Rishi Kapoor, who lashed out at Deepika and Sonam for being immature, and Karan Johar for instigating these comments. Read the full story here.

Juicy Offscreen Quotes:

“I always think before I speak. I’m not the sort who will just say anything that comes to my mind. I’m a very emotional and sensitive person. But I’m also very strong and know my mind well.”

“I know how to deal with success and failure. Success of Om Shanti Om did not affect me nor did failure of Chandni Chowk to China. I have learnt this as a sportsperson myself and from my father as a child.”

“I’ve grown up watching Shah Rukh Khan and never really imagined that one day I will get to play the lead opposite him”

“I enjoyed being Veronica so much it took me a long time to get out of the character. I had withdrawal symptoms. I missed being Veronica.”

“Ranbir and I found a different kind of friendship and a different kind of fondness for each other, which was absent when we were dating. We were naive back then, we’re more mature today. I’m happy in the place the friendship is now. And I don’t want to complicate it.
