Apparently, actress Deepika Padukone did not share a cordial relationship with the newly married Anushka Sharma and the reason behind this has been revealed

While the Internet has been flooded with congratulatory messages for the newlywed couple, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli from Bollywood as well as celebrities from the sports fraternity, one thing that has caught the attention is Deepika Padukone not wishing the couple on social media. A source told Pinkvilla that Deepika wanted to give a personal touch, so she personally messaged Anushka.

The source revealed, "Maybe not on social media, but Deepika Padukone has wished the happy couple personally and it was a warm message. She texted them both her best wishes individually post the wedding. Deepika likes to add her own personal touch to whatever she does – be it her own team or friends and social media can be a cold and impersonal way of conveying one's feelings. Also, she has always been very supportive of Anushka in everything she has done as Anushka has been of her. They may have had issues in the past but now both have found admiration and respect for each other."

Both the actresses have an infamous history and apparently did not share a cordial relationship with each other. The incident that made eyes wider of the audiences was when Anushka and best friend Katrina Kaif appeared on filmmaker Karan Johar's chat show. Considering Anushka's former boyfriend Ranveer Singh's fondness with Deepika and the common connection of Ranbir Kapoor between Katrina and Deepika, both the ladies were asked about their 'friendship' with the latter. It was their silence that triggered further speculations.

The source clarified to the website that Anushka and Deepika were never on good terms with each other. "While we know that Deepika and Anushka are on good terms today, it was odd that Deepika didn't wish Anushka on social media, as the rest of the Bollywood stars. All the talk started when Deepika started dating Anushka's alleged ex-flame, Ranveer Singh but their relationship is much more amicable today so one would have expected her to wish Anushka on her special day. Till a year ago, Anushka was still passing sarcastic remarks on Deepika with the latter maintaining a calm façade and saying she considered Anushka as a friend but somewhere this year both patched up," told the insider.

On the professional front, Anushka Sharma has to prepare for YRF's 'Sui Dhaaga' with Varun Dhawan, shoot for Aanand L Rai's next schedule with Shah Rukh Khan and promote her production movie, 'Pari'. On the other hand, Deepika has an unreleased Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, 'Padmavati' with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
