Open to Deepika gifting me condoms: Ranbir

Sunday, November 21, 2010

MUMBAI - Bollywood hearthrob Ranbir Kapoor says he’s quite open to the idea of former girlfriend Deepika Padukone gifting him a pack of condoms and wishes her all the best for her next film “Break Ke Baad”.

Deepika had wished to gift him a pack of condoms while talking to filmmaker Karan Johar on his chat show “Koffee with Karan”. And Ranbir isn’t flustered by Deepika’s remark and says condoms are one of the most useful gifts as people should be made aware of the importance of safe sex.

“I think she said a good thing. Our country should be aware of safe sex and condom is a means to that. And thank you for that,” Ranbir said when queried by reporters on the red carpet of the Teacher’s Achievement Awards held here late Saturday.

Ranbir, who got an award in the field of entertainment, said he wished the actress all the best for her film “Break Ke Baad”, which also stars Imran Khan.

“Best of luck ‘Break-Ke Baad’. It seems really nice…you and Imran are a great couple. Looking forward to see the film,” he said.

The actor maintains that they share a cordial relationship even after their break-up.

“I have always maintained that. Whenever we meet each other, we are very cordial…I wish her and she wishes me,” he said.

Ranbir, in just three years, has reached an enviable position in Bollywood, garnering both critical and commercial success for his films like “Wake Up Sid”, “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani”, “Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year”, “Rajneeti” and “Anjaana Anjaani”. He says he feels overwhelmed when his work, however little it is now, is celebrated.

On receiving the Teacher’s Achievement Award, he said: “I really feel overwhelmed when they celebrate my work as I am fairly new and I don’t have that much of body of work. It feels great, it feels awesome…acknowledges whatever I have done,” Ranbir said.
