- 'Deepika, All good wishes on your engagement,' Hema Malini wrote
- Hema Malini's tweet meant for a newly-engaged follower
- Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are believed to be dating
This is the tweet that went astray:
Deepika, All good wishes on ur engagement! Pray God both of u have a bright future, happiness & joy in ur life together— Hema Malini (@dreamgirlhema) April 28, 2016
Twitter was straightaway plunged into thrilled confusion. Two hours later, Hemaji issued a clarification:
No no! This is Deepika who is following me on Twitter! Not Ms Padukone!— Hema Malini (@dreamgirlhema) April 28, 2016
By then, wishful thinking on the part of delighted fans had led to a shortcut to a happy ending - for the wrong Deepika:
@dreamgirlhema omg!!!! This news it true?— Patel vansh (@Patelvansh7) April 28, 2016
@dreamgirlhema what u did earlier,deepika doing the same. Breaking heart of million— Sanjiv Thapa (@sanjivthapa2001) April 28, 2016
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, co-stars from the films Bajirao Mastani and Ram-Leela, are believed to be dating although they have never officially acknowledged a romance. Neither are currently on Indian Standard Time - both are abroad on work - and so have not yet reacted to their short-lived virtual engagement.
Keep calm and carry on, Twitter.
