Relationship expert Riddhish Maru feels that working with your ex is a risky proposition. He says, “Memories of a breakup often take about six months to a year to fade away. If you are working with your ex, then stop comparing them to your current partner. Don’t dig up past issues. Keep in mind that you are together just for work and you broke up for a reason. Avoid situations where there could be just you and your ex. Keep your present partner updated and don’t hide anything from them — that may lead to friction and doubt in their mind.” Reportedly, Ranveer was Anushka’s first boyfriend in Bollywood after they worked in Band Baaja Baaraat (2010).
