Actress Deepika Padukone celebrated her 2013 box office rage with the who's who of Bollywood.

She invited her ex-boyfriend and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' co-star Ranbir Kapoor to raise a toast with her.

But Ranbir turned down her invite and didn't show up.

Now the actor has politely tuned down a commercial offer.

The soap commercial features Deepika Padukone, and now Imran Khan has replaced Ranbir.

The 'Besharam' actor politely rejected the offer saying that he wasn’t comfortable associating himself with feminine products.

But is it really the reason or Deepika's association has anything to do with it?

It's uncanny of Ranbir to say no to a commercial because Deepika is involved; since the two have always proclaimed how comfortable they are working with each other.

Moreover after the success of 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' they have signed another movie to be directed by Imtiaz Ali.

If reports are to be believed Ranbir had a lover's tiff with girlfriend Katrina Kaif and the two are not in talking terms.

Though 'Jagga Jasoos' shoot is on, the couple made it a point not to hang out with each other. In the first schedule both actors were inseparable.

Avoiding Deepika may be Ranbir's way of cajoling girlfriend Katrina Kaif.

But there's nothing for Katrina to fear since Deepika is going strong with Ranveer Singh.

Though it's not official but both Deepipka and Ranveer have been painting the town red and going on vacation together.

Beau Ranveer Singh has also got the seal of approval from her friends who are now urging the actress to get 'serious' about the relationship.

So in that case should Katrina influence Ranbir's decision of signing endorsements with other B-town ladies?
