They have paired up in 'Love Aaj Kal' and 'Cocktail' and Deepika terms the two films her best love stories. "When you are performing for screen, you get a lot of energy from your co-star as well. Saif is one of the most spontaneous actors I have worked with and I wouldn't have been as convincing on screen if not for him.
"He has always been a huge support and encouragement right from 'Love Aaj Kal'. His production house has given me two of my best love stories. It is time now to take the association forward," Deepika said.
Saif and Deepika will be seen together again in 'Race 2' which releases early next year. The 26-year-old actress is happy that amidst a barrage of sequels and South remakes that have been the trend in Bollywood lately, 'Cocktail' has made its mark as an original story and earned its fair share of profits.
"There is no formula to a successful film. In the recent past the only films to have done tremendous business are South remakes or sequels. However, 'Cocktail' has made its presence felt as an original tale," said Deepika, whose last big success was 'Housefull'.
The actress said she is particularly happy about the film as she has an inclination towards romantic comedies and love stories.
"Not just because I am a part of the film but also because I truly enjoy doing love stories. I am partial towards such films and it's nice to know that today not only comedy, drama or action films are doing well but there is a definite place for a pure love story to do good business as well," she said.
