We are optimistic about Tamasha at the Box Office: Ranbir
London: Famous Bollywood actor Ranbir while discussing his new movie “Tamasha” said: It is important, there is so much at stake that you want to reach a large audience, it is hard because we meet some interested people who want to know about the film and we also meet others who already know what the film is about and want to know what’s happening behind the scenes. It can be a painful process to answer the more intrusive questions, but it’s ok, we believe in the film we have made, and are proud of it.
Tamasha can be seen to mean the spectacle we make of our lives. In the film, two people go on a holiday, they meet, they decide to live a carefree existence at awesome locations, and in a twist, they decide not to burden their lives with identity, hence they don’t reveal their true identities. They don’t feel the need to be tied down through the commitment of a relationship. However, after three years,the girl realises that she is still in love with him, and can’t live without him.
She sets about tracking him down in Delhi. When she finally finds him, she sees that he has become the worst version of himself possible; he has lost all zest for life. She hates him and when he proposes to her, she tells him, ‘No, I don’t want to be with you. I was waiting for that guy.’ Her words get to him and he sets about changing his life. There is a happy ending!
The heroine Deepika and Ranbir both endorsed a query and said we are aware there was a film called Tamasha in 1952, starring Dev Anand, S.N. Banerjee, Sunalini Devi.
In a question “What was it like working with Imtiaz Ali? Ranbir replied, “Imtiaz has given wholeheartedly of himself in this film. He is cutting edge, creative, innovative and a risk-taker; he doesn’t become a prototype of the films he makes. He is such a successful director and has made both intelligent and entertaining films. When he made Highway, he understands its reach. Rockstar was not a widely accepted film and he accepted and understands all that. For me, to just see that endeavour to be the best version of himself is very inspiring.
While Deepika said, “My equation with Imtiaz is beyond my actor-director relationship. He is in a large way responsible for who I have become today both as an actor and as a person. He was the one who kept saying to me that there is more to you as a person than you are revealing, let yourself go. He figured me out even better than I knew myself, but I was locked in my own shell.
