LAHORE: Ranbir Kapoor featuring in a Pakistani flick soon? I know it sounds too fancy to your ears but the Bollywood diva seems to have such plans in future.
During a video conference with the Pakistani press, Ranbir said if a Pakistani producer offers a ‘quality film with a great story’, he will surely sign up the project.
“My family has always worked for the welfare of cinema. It is true that the Indian film industry is bigger compared to Pakistan’s industry. The promotion and well-being of film culture in the region is the responsibility of local artists,” he said during the video conference which was organized at Luxus Grand Cinema in Lahore on Friday.
The session was part of a promotional event for Ranbir and Deepika’s upcoming film Tamasha and was organised by Distribution Club Pvt Ltd.
Ranbir also mentioned that some of his family members have paid numerous visits to Pakistan for both professional and personal reasons in the past.
He said, “ Even I want to visit. There are so many cities and locations that I have to see!”
He added that he is aware the Pakistani film industry has its own wonderful traditions and that there is no race between Indian films and Pakistani cinema. “We should all work for the promotion of film culture in the region.”
While referring to his recent flops, Kapoor said, “I know that some of my recently-launched films were not good enough. I take full responsibility for the failure,” he said.
As far as Tamasha’s response in Pakistan is concerned, Ranbir said he will be all pride if Pakistani audiences turn up in huge numbers to see the film and make it a success. “Tamasha’s story line is very powerful, hence there was no need to add ‘masala’ content like items songs etc,” he said.
Although Ranbir used most of talking time, Deepika also got a chance to talk to the Pakistani media. “It is a family film with a very interesting story that has something for all sections of the society,” she said.
The Bollywood diva said she has always loved working with Ranbir. “I learnt a lot from him and we made some great memories during the shoot.”
Deepika said one should do what the heart says and care little about how others will perceive it, which is the undercurrent of Tamasha. “I am essaying the role of this girl, Tara, who never compromises when it comes to the truth. I am actually looking forward to how women like the film, especially my role,” she said.
Padukone added, “I have given my 100 per cent to Tamasha.”
Shot in Japan and other scenic locations, Tamasha will hit big screens on November 27.
