Another long-standing love story of a Bollywood couple has apparently come to an end, mainly due to their gruelling work schedules, which kept them apart for long periods and also threw them in the way of temptation, so to speak. From what we hear, the devoted, faithful and supportive boyfriend, Ranveer Singh has moved on. Sources in the know say this time the break-up is clean and permanent, and that in fact, Ranveer is dating another girl whose identity is not yet known.

Says a very well-informed source, “Ranveer and  Deepika  have been together for five years. They are no longer a couple. There was no bitter parting. They just drifted apart. They both tried to make it work with the help of their supportive families, who wanted to ensure that the relationship made it to the altar. And that was one of the problems with the relationship. Ranveer wanted a marriage. Deepika  completely opposed the idea, arguing that marriage would affect her career in its prime.”

The duo caught in a solemn moment on Ranveer’s birthday earlier this month.The duo caught in a solemn moment on Ranveer’s birthday earlier this month.

Sources say  Ranveer  was patient and supportive. “Even when they were shooting in separate continents, he would fly down to be with her whenever possible. Ranveer gave Deepika  astronomical space. He never allowed any doubt or suspicion to creep in even when rumours of a relationship with Vin Diesel reached his ears.”

But things got to a point where  Ranveer became the resident pacifist in the relationship, always patient and tolerant, while she did her own thing.  Ranveer, it seems has regrettably moved on. And if he seems unlucky in love — what with this being his second aborted serious commitment to an actress after Anushka Sharma,    Deepika, too, lost Ranbir Kapoor to Katrina Kaif and now  Ranveer to the mysterious girl he’s said to be dating?

Luckily, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is the only project that Ranveer and Deepika have together, and it does not get affected by the split. Says a source from Bhansali’s production, “Ranveer and Deepika do not share any screen space in Padmavati. It is ironical that their relationship started with Sanjay  Bhansali’s  Ram Leela  where they played the desi  Romeo and Juliet,  who couldn’t keep their hands off one another, and their relationship has ended during another Bhansali  film where he is not allowed to touch her.”
