TODAY THEY admit that they’re very much in love and started seeing each only on February 23, 2008. But the facts seem to indicate otherwise.

In 2007, Deepika’s then boyfriend, Nihar Pandya, threw a fit when he caught them together driving down the Mount Mary Road in suburban Bandra at night.

And though Ranbir never went public with his relationship, fact is that he was seeing Sonam Kapoor, whose heart broke as well when she found out about Deepika.

Cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who was then seeing Kim Sharma, broke her heart too, when she discovered loving messages from Deepika Padukone on his phone! So just what was happening in this maze of relationships?

Deepika and Ranbir definitely got closer on the sets of Bachna Ae Haseeno in Sydney, Australia. Today Deepika admits, “Ranbir started pursuing me from Sydney.” But she wasn’t quite through with Yuvraj then.

In fact, when the Sydney schedule of the film was complete, Deepika was flying out to be with Yuvraj in Perth, where he was playing a test series.When she was leaving Sydney on an early morning flight after a grueling night of shooting, she went all around the unit saying farewell. The only person missing at the time was Ranbir.

When later questioned about Yuvraj, Deepika denied seeing him totally.

But today Yuvraj comes forward to admit, “Well, she was with me and now she’s moved on with another person.

I guess it’s her personal choice. We didn’t spend enough time with each other to know if it was going to be a long term thing.”

So when Deepika discovered that Yuvraj wasn’t working for her, she went right back to Ranbir Kapoor.

They only admit to going on a lunch date in July 2007 but Deepika insists, “It was purely platonic and nothing else.” Yet, when asked whether it was love at first sight he admits, “We were attracted from day one but love happened gradually.”

Deepika spills the beans when she says, “Both our partners at that time knew that we were going out but there was nothing more than lunch...” What she seems to forget is the fact that lunch lasted up to near midnight! One doesn’t actually know how much is really fair in love and war. The couple seems to have stepped over quite a few hearts to get where they have.

Today, as things stand the past seems to have all been swept under the carpet.

Deepika is happily basking in sharing family time with the Kapoors, while her dad Prakash Padukone says that he likes Ranbir Kapoor who’s a thorough gentleman.
