Although the 2 former models have not acted alongside each other, they have been friends for many years.
Priyanka said "Deepika is a lovely person and we have known each other for years now, way before she became an actor. The reason is that we have a common circle of friends"
Deepika responded "Priyanka and I have always been very cordial and friendly with each other. Since not many have seen us bonding, they generally get surprised about it."
