Deepika Padukone who will be seen with Ranbir Kapoor for the first time after their breakup is excited to be working with him again. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will be in seen in ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ movie directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar.

“I am really excited about the film it is going to be real fun. Working with such a brilliant actor like Ranbir that too in a love story, that’s the kind of film I always wanted to do. Moreover Ayan (director) is so young and talented and it was about time we did a film together. It is indeed great to be back with Ranbir in a film. Both of us were looking forward to a film that would justify our presence and `Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani` has turned out to be one such film,” she said to PTI.

Deepika Padukone said that this movie was special and also unlike any other movies she has done till now.

“The film is special since it would be directed by Ayan Mukerji. He is a mutual friend of Ranbir and myself. He pretty much knew that he had to do something special to bring us together on screen. I am ecstatic since this is going to be a true blue love story with an old school romance to it. I have never worked in a film like this before,” she said.

Deepika Padukone is very happy with the success that Ranbir Kapoor has met with.

“I know how excited Ranbir was when he started off in the industry. He has put so much into his films and as a result his success means a lot to him. He is happy with the fact that his hard work has paid off,” he said.

Deepika Padukone has previously experimented with movies like ‘Aarakshan` and `Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se`. But the actress said that it wasn’t a conscious decision to balance between commercial and non-commercial movies.

“Honestly, I don’t like to segregate films as commercial, middle of the road, art house, new age. I don’t wish to tell the audience either to leave their brains behind or bring them along. A film is a film after all. It’s only inIndiawhere segregation around commercial and art takes place. At the end of the day I am an entertainer and I should be able to entertain the audience in all films that I do. I do understand that there are certain kind of films that are appreciated only by niche audience while there are others which appeal to a larger number. The idea is to mix and match,” she concluded.
