Caught red handed: Deepika Padukone reveals reason for breaking up with Ranbir Kapoor


In a rather surprising move, Deepika Padukone reveals reason for breaking up with Ranbir Kapoor a few years back. She gave an interview to a leading magazine and in that interview, she revealed that she caught him red handed while having sex with others and that’s the reason for breaking up with Ranbir.

Ranbir and Deepika met in 2007 when the two were working on their debut films. Reportedly they started dating during their 2008 film Bachna Ae Haseeno. But their relationship was short-lived as Deepika broke up with him later. There were rumors that time that Deepika caught him red handed with Katrina Kaif and that’s the reason they broke up. After this many years, now she confirmed the same.

She told in the interview, “For me, sex is not just about physicality; there are emotions involved. I have never cheated or strayed when I’m in a relationship. If I’m going to be fooling around, why would I be in a relationship? It’s better to be single and have fun. But not everyone thinks like that. Maybe that’s why I’ve been hurt in the past. I was foolish enough to give him a second chance because he begged and pleaded, despite the fact that everyone around me said he was still straying. Then I actually caught him red-handed. It took me a while to get out. But having done that, nothing can make me go back. That ship has sailed. The first time he cheated on me, I thought there was something wrong with the relationship, or me. But when someone makes a habit of it, you know the problem lies with him. I give a lot in relationships, and don’t really expect much in return. But, infidelity is the deal breaker. Once it comes in, respect goes away, trust goes away” Deepika said. She also admitted, “It made me realise I should not be so attached to one thing or a person – after the break-up the fact that I had to pick myself up. I cried a lot after my break-up. But I have become a better person and I thank him for that”.

After breaking up with Ranbir, now Deepika is with Ranveer and both are planning to marry soon.
