Deepika Padukone-Siddharth Mallya heading for split!

The relationship which looked like for keeps has apparently started showing the signs of wear and tear. Are Deepika Padukone and Siddharth Mallya heading for splitsville? It’s said that their relationship is showing its first cracks.

Though Deepika and Siddharth were busy painting the town red with their numerous public appearances, the couple always stayed away from commenting on their relationship status. But, if you try to remember the last time the duo made an appearance together, you would probably fail. It’s nearly about three months since Deepika and Siddharth stopped going together to the public events.

When Siddharth Mallya appeared for the Mumbai Marathon in January, Deepika was nowhere to be seen. According to sources, Siddharth’s refusal to publicly acknowledge their relationship has been a bone of contention between them, and more recently, Deepika’s growing proximity to former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor apparently became an issue with Siddharth.

As a tabloid reported, Mallya Jr even confided in a friend that “the relationship is not working and heading nowhere.” On the other hand, Deepika is also trying to look unperturbed. She is reportedly putting up a brave front and is focusing on her career.

Now, the obvious question: Is Ranbir Kapoor coming close to Deepika Padukone? The actor recently gifted a piano to Deepika when he came to know about her interest in learning music.

Ranbir and Deepika are also doing a romantic film together. Deepika even said once that there are no issues anymore with Ranbir, and that she is now “good friends” with him. Deepika even partied with Ranbir on his 29th birthday.

It can be just a rough phase in their high-profile relationship or maybe Deepika Padukone and Siddharth Mallya are headed for a new beginning in their lives?
