Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, over a four-year-long relationship
conquered the box-office, the red carpet and social media with their undeniable
They looked good in haute couture, the movie-going audiences lapped up their reel life romances (Goliyon Ki Raasleela Raam-Leela, Bajirao Mastani) and every picture of them together was #relationship goals.
But it looks like the 'It' couple has run out of steam. The signs have been there for some time now.

At the song launch of the title track of Befikre, Ranveer went as far as to describe Deepika as a "friend". Even when reporters kept referring to her as his "girlfriend", Ranveer chose to stick to his neutral descriptor.
This comes from a man who has never been shy of shouting his love for Deepika from the roof-tops. Interestingly, Ranveer had told a section of the media that he is ready to settle down and start a family.
"I have a very simple aim today. I want to be an honorable family man. I have been thinking a lot about settling down,” the 31-year-old had made his plans clear in an interview.

But unfortunately it does not look like Deepika is ready to become Mrs Ranveer Singh yet. The 30-year-old who is set to make her Hollywood debut opposite Vin Diesel in xXx: Return of Xander Cage in 2017, has so far maintained that marriage is not on her 'to-do' list.
The actress had vehemently denied reports of an engagement earlier this year, saying,
"I am not pregnant, I am not getting married and I am not engaged."
And indeed, it looks like the spark between the twosome, who were once inseparable, has fizzled out.
Both Ranveer and Deepika were at Shah Rukh Khan's party where Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was the guest of honour. They arrived separately and while Deepika was clicked hanging out with Chris, there was no sign of Ranveer anywhere.

Then came the most surprising sighting ever. At the Global Citizen Concert, Ranveer was spotted hanging out with Katrina Kaif (WATCH: Ranveer Singh Enjoying With Katrina Kaif At the Coldplay Concert; Deepika Padukone MIA!, Nov 20 2016).

Our readers would know that Deepika and Katrina share a relationship which is frosty at best and here was her boyfriend, dancing in the crowds with her nemesis (Deepika Padukone Is Allergic To Katrina Kaif, Kissa Kursi Ka, Nov 13 ).
And in another strange twist in the tale, rumour has it that Deepika has been sharing the details of her crumbling relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, who is the common 'ex' factor between both her and Katrina.
The duo let their hair down at the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil success bash and Ranveer Singh was not on the guest list.
The loved-up sightings of Ranveer and Deepika which were once common, have become rare now. By the way, when did they last go on a vacation together?
And even when Deepika and Ranveer are spotted together, the body language signals to trouble in paradise.

If this love story has indeed run its course, Sanjay Leela Bhansali definitely has a bigger task at hand than helming his magnum opus Padmavati?
A friend of Bhansali told SpotboyE.com,"Sanjay used to tell people that he recast Deepika and Ranveer because their love was visible in their eyes and their body language and he wanted to capitalise on the undeniable chemistry."

But now that the chemistry seems to have fizzled out in real life, will Sanjay be able to recreate the equation on the big screen?
