The media report in print had said that ‘if things go well, in two years time marriage could be on the cards. But right now, both of them are focused on their respective professions’.
Many in media had reported that Deepika and Yuvraj Singh were spotted recently at a popular Sydney restaurant. Zee news website quoting grapevine sources had said that ‘Om Shanti Om’ girl had gone to Sydney on after Yuvraj had sent out a special invite for his latest love interest to catch him in action during the ongoing India-Australia test series.
