MUMBAI: 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, 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.
Actor Ranbir Kapoor says that seeing co-star Deepika Padukone‘s growth as an actor was heart-warming and inspiring for him, and he learnt a lot while working with her.
“I learnt a lot working with Deepika. We did our second film together, ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ and then we did ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ which was a big hit. To see her grow as an actor and to this extent, was really heart-warming, encouraging and really inspiring for me,” he said after launching, with her, the trailer of Imtiaz Ali’s much-anticipated romantic film, “Tamasha” here on Tuesday.
“For me, ‘Tamasha’ is very special, to come with this team together. And I really hope that the people give the film a chance in the theatres and they enjoy the film. It’s the second film with Imtiaz and second film with Sajid Nadiadwala, my third film with Deepika and my eleventh film with Siddharth Roy Kapur (UTV Motion Pictures). So I’m really excited to work with this team,” he said.
