The man of the hour clearly deserves an over-the-top Valentine’s Day gift. In the past, Ranveer, on several occasions has made his feelings quite clear for Deepika through various gestures and words. Deepika, on the other hand, has always been more guarded about her feelings in public. So, wouldn’t it be nice if Deepika declared her love for Ranveer in front of the whole world, for a change. Keeping in mind his funky taste and loud character, Deepika should plan a Valentine Flash mob for Ranveer, when he least expects it.

Ranbir Kapoor has recently broken up with Katrina Kaif and as per the various reports, there are very slim chances of reconciliation.

The poor lady is currently nursing a broken heart. And, she clearly needs to get out of the love pad that she was sharing with her ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor. This Valentine’s Day could not have come at a worse time for her since she is busy promoting her new movie, Fitoor which ironically is releasing during Valentine’s week. Katrina has no option but to put up a smiley front and face the cameras on a daily basis. A nice, long vacation in an undisclosed location would make for an ideal Valentine’s Day gift for Katrina. So, who would be the lucky guy to give her that, perhaps a certain Ek Tha Tiger Khan?
