Deepika Padukone-Siddharth Mallya’s break-up was bitter!

It seems Deepika Padukone and Siddharth Mallya’s highly-publicized relationship couldn’t tide over the rough phase. But what’s worse is that the young couple split on a sour note.

What went wrong between the two remains an inside story, but one never anticipated that things could go so wrong that Deepika and Siddharth would avoid coming face-to-face, let alone acknowledge each other’s presence at social dos. At the recently held Cosmopolitan Fun Fearless Female and Male Awards, both Deepika and Siddharth were at the event, but they didn’t share ‘hi’ or ‘hello’, not even for good old time’s sake.

According to the sources,

It’s Deepika Padukone’s way to deal with the breakup. “She’ll disconnect for sometime, and once it’s past and she has moved on, the relationship will be cordial again.

a source is quoted as saying. When things become normal for her, she might befriend that person.

Ditto happened with Ranbir Kapoor! Deepika is now friends with her ex and both are even working in a film.

Deepika Padukone’s former beau from her modeling days, Nihar Pandya, is also back in her life. The duo reportedly shares a warm camaraderie, and as per sources, Deepika recently was in Hyderabad for the movie Kochadaiyaan and Nihar accompanied her.
