What started as a dance challenge, has turned out to be great friendship and looks like it’s soon going to be reel Jodi too. We’re talking about Kartik Aaryan and Deepika Padukone’s friendship. Last year Deepika Padukone openly asked Kartik to teach her the Dheeme Dheeme dance steps so she too can be a part of the viral dance challenge. Later Kartik shared a collage of their picture, which featured his old picture and Deepika’s retro look from her debut film Om Shanti Om and said – Hai kisi mein dum! Soon DP replied to him saying ‘why these pictures though?’ and attached a LOL gif. To which the heartthrob instantly replied saying, ‘Kyunki tabse Qainaat iss koshish mein lagi hai.’ And well this social media banter not only made netizens go aww but also made us wonder if the two are doing a film together.
After those social media hints, rumours have been strong that Imtiaz Ali might get them together in a film. The filmmaker has worked with DP twice and is working with Aaryan now for the first time with Love Aaj Kal. So when he was asked in an interview today, if he plans to get the two actors together and got Deepika on board, here’s what he had to say, “There’s nothing I’ve spoken to her about, but hopefully something will happen.” Now let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope this comes true and ‘qainaat’ makes this Jodi come together on the big screen.
Kartik Aaryan is currently busy promoting Imtiaz Ali’s next Love Aaj Kal which releases on February 14. The actor is on a promotional spree along with Sara Ali Khan. While Deepika Padukone is prepping for her next film which is Shakun Batra’s next along with Sidhanth Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday.
