Unlike most filmmakers Imtiaz Ali has been known not to work with the same actor twice. However it seems he has a couple of exceptions. When talking to the media, Ali expressed why he decided to work with Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor more than once.
“I am very fond of Ranbir and Deepika as actors. I share a certain comfort level and understanding with them,” Times of India reported Ali expressing.
Having Kapoor part of ‘Rockstar’ (2011) and Padukone in ‘Love Aaj Kal’ (2009) and bringing them together for ‘Tamasha’ (2015), the filmmaker went on to add, “Of course, they are my friends, but that doesn’t matter. The reason they were also in ‘Tamasha’ (after their previous films) is because they suited the parts.”
Talking about his future projects, Ali remained rather tight lipped, “I am working on two stories at the moment, but nothing is confirmed as yet.”
