Actor Ranbir Kapoor may be going through a rough phase in his career but he hopes his former girlfriend, actress Deepika Padukone brings good luck for him and their upcoming film "Tamasha" does well
Deepika and Ranbir Kapoor, who have previously starred together in “Bachna Ae Haseeno” and “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, are reuniting on the big screen with Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming romantic drama.
While the 29-year-old “Piku” actress is having a good run at the box office with back-to-back hits, Ranbir’s last few films – “Besharam”, “Roy” and “Bombay Velvet” – have failed to create magic.
When asked whether Deepika would prove lucky for him in terms of box office success, Ranbir said, “It is not fair to label anyone as lucky charm. Deepika has worked very hard to be here (in the top). She is a dedicated person. I do hope her luck works on me and not mine on her.
“It depends on ‘Tamasha’. If the film becomes successful then everyone would be happy to see our pairing,” Ranbir, 32, said.
Deepika and Ranbir’s last collaboration “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” was a hit and their on-screen chemistry was appreciated.
The “Rockstar” actor said it is inspiring to work with her. “I have seen her growth as an actress. There is so much to learn from her. It is not only heart-warming but inspiring and encouraging to work with her,” he said.
Ranbir said he doesn’t feel the pressure for his next film.
“There is less pressure as we have talented people like Deepika and Imtiaz on board for ‘Tamasha’. Imtiaz always brings the best in me and so is the case with Deepika. I have less pressure when I am working with them,” he said.
The film is set to release on November 27 and Ranbir said he would not leave any stone unturned for the promotion of the film.
On the title of the film, Ranbir said, “We are in showbiz…’Tamasha’ can be good or bad. But there has to be limit to it,” he said.
