She went on saying there were days when she had cried for Ranbir to overcome whatever happened and today she thanks him for providing her that phase.
“It made me realise I should not be so attached to one thing or a person - after the break-up the fact that I had to pick myself up. I cried a lot after my break-up. But I have become a better person and I thank him for that," said Deepika.
