On her 30th birthday yesterday (July 16), Katrina Kaif received a message from a special well-wisher —Deepika Padukone, the ex-girlfriend of her alleged boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
Deepika took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to send out a rather sweet message to Katrina. Her tweet read, “Happy Birthday #Katrina!Lots of love & hope you have the bestest year ever!:-) (sic)” This tweet follows Deepika’s recent statement at an event, where she showered praises on Katrina and even went on to clarify that the two heroines share a ‘cordial’ relationship. At the same event, Deepika was voted the sexiest woman of the year by a magazine — a title Katrina had held for three years. At that time, Deepika had said, “I think Katrina is absolutely stunning; she is extremely beautiful, and she is very, very talented. She deserves to have won for all the times that she has.”
Trade analyst Amod Mehra says, “This tweet is a clear signal from Deepika that there’s no problem between the two actors. Sometimes, a lot of things related to actors are blown out of proportion, so this tweet was Deepika’s way of saying that it’s enough, and that there’s no need for such reports.”
When we spoke to Deepika a few days ago about whether it’s discomforting at all to work with ex-lover Ranbir Kapoor again, she had said, “I find it silly that even till date, we are still asked this question. We have all moved on. We have already done a film together (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani; 2013),”

Reportedly, Katrina has recently flown to France to be with Ranbir, who is currently shooting for his next with Deepika in the country.
Can exes be friends?
In a past interview to us, Arjun Kapoor had opened up about his relationship with Arpita Khan and said, “Arpita and I dated a long time ago…It’s difficult for exes to be friends; so we don’t hang out the way we used to, but when we meet, we talk.”
On several occasions, Salman Khan has said that although his relationship with Sangeeta Bijlani is a matter of the past, the two continue to be very good friends. In fact, he had even stated on Karan Johar’s chat show that the two still hang out at his home, and that she’s like family.
