After Lafangey Parindey, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepika Padukone became good friends and were fond of each other
In 2010, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepika Padukone's movie Lafangey Parindey hit the screens, but it didn't do well in the box-office. However, the lead pair's friendship started blooming ever since.
There were rumours about their growing friendship on the sets of the movie. And a tweet by Neil added fuel to the fire. He had 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.''
In an interview with a leading daily, Neil had confessed that he is fond of Deepika as she is a very sweet person. "She is one of the sweetest people I know,'' said Neil in the interview.
He added, "She is almost family - my 4 am friend whom I can talk to about anything and everything. Her smile is so contagious. I am very fond of her."
Not just Neil, Deepika too had called him very caring. In an interview to a web portal, the Piku actress had revealed, ''Working with Neil was a brilliant experience. I think he is a nice, caring man who takes care of everyone on the set.'' She also added, "He believes that filmmaking is like a family reunion, he takes an interest in everyone's togetherness. I personally loved working with Neil."
Deepika also said that Neil did her make-up one day. ''Honestly, I think Neil is the most giving actor I have worked with. I can definitely say that he is most supportive. He puts me before himself. There are days when it's an important scene for him too, but he would be there to support me and worry about my performance,'' she said.
