Ex-lovers Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor once created magic in their movie ‘Yeh Jawaani Hain Diwani’. It is no surprise then, that their next movie by Imtiaz Ali, ‘Tamasha’ is much awaited.
In an interview with PTI, Imtiaz opened up about the essence of his movie and why he chose Ranbir and Deepika. He said, “You meet a certain person and you are very enchanted by him. He is free flowing and your type and then you lose touch… Years later when you meet, he is absolutely somebody else. Sometimes in trying to belong, you lose your edge, you become blunt and you forget who you are unless someone comes to remind you, someone who has seen you at that time. It’s not that simple because it takes the undoing of entire life’s experience to get in touch with yourself and your wild energy.”
He added, “It is about not fitting in and this comes through a very personal story of these two people. What Tamasha is trying to say is that don’t be satisfied with the stories you hear around you, create your own myth, choose your own story.”
He mentioned about Ranbir and Deepika, “Individually, they were very suited to the role and they are very good actors. They are my friends. Ranbir as an actor is moving towards purity and it is exciting to work with him because he is so interested in his craft. I always thought that Deepika was a special actress. I have seen a big change in her post Love Aaj Kal. Earlier, she wanted to remain hidden as she is a very shy person but now she is too involved in being the character to care about the attention.”
Well, can’t wait for this one already.
