Speaking of his equation with Deepika, the actor had earlier said that the two are amicable and keep in touch. He added, "It's all very much on a friendly note. But these days when you say friends people feel there is something more to it and we should check with the other person as well. Unfortunately with these relationships that I have been tagged, there is a wrong notion among people that I am wanting to be with an actress. That is not how we had planned it."
