Neil Nitin Mukesh said on Zoom's Superstar Weekends, "Deepika and I are definitely more than friends but that doesn't mean that we need to get linked up. Deepika is one of the finest co-stars I've worked with and she's someone whom I would want to work with again and again."
However, the rumours about the link up between Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepika Padukone started swirling on the internet after they exchanged flirting tweets. Neil tweeted, "I stood outside Deepika's door yesterday with a red rose for three hours. Then I realised that she had gone for the promotions of Aarakshan." Deepika replied, "Jhoot."
