In the world of Hindi cinema or for that matter in any realm when lovers separate, they wear the pangs of separation on their shoulders, and do not think twice before displaying the disdain, where they to cross their paths. But Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor seems to be one pair who do not believe in the old school of thought of heaping scorn in the public against each other, after they separated, but carry on working professionally.
Deepika Padukone in particular is a lady who is grace personified and is professional down to the core, who does not allow her personal issues to dictate terms to her in governing her professional commitments. It was manifest in the manner in which she cooperated with Ranbir Kapoor in enacting the role in YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI and also in subsequently promoting the film. Her professional and sense of poise reached its acme at the birthday celebration party of Karan Johar. On the eve of the party Ranbir Kapoor arrived with his current girlfriend Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone arrived alone separately, participated in the party, was gracious in not showing any emotions when Ranbir accompanied Katrina Kaif.
It all perhaps boil down to the upbringing that she has been provided by her parents, the Padukones, more so his dad Prakash Padukone, who is amongst the finest sports gentlemen to have made his mark in India. Besides, coming from a family of a sports person, the sportsman spirit seems to have been provided in fair abundance and it indeed is helping Deepika in maintaining her calm and poise when faced with the situations in public of his erstwhile boyfriend walking in with a different lady.
The short point of the argument lies in the fact that indeed the spirit of sportsmanship needs to be the guiding principle through which one should govern oneself in public life. In particular, for a woman, for whom the stereotyped notion is that when betrayed in love, she could be most revengeful; Deepika Padukone's example should be cited with aplomb to make the argument stand on its head. Life should go on; one should live in the moment, not brood about the past, nor be anxious about the future.
