His movies have given a much needed push to the careers of many actors, and now filmmaker Imtiaz Ali hopes Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will achieve greater heights with his latest romantic drama “Tamasha”.
Ranbir and Deepika, who started their Bollywood journey eighth years ago, have previously worked with the 44-year-old director in “Rockstar” and “Love Aaj Kal”, respectively.
When asked if “Tamasha” will turn the tide for Ranbir, whose recent films have failed at the box office, Imtiaz told PTI, “I hope so. These things are far too transient. The career graph is just a dot in the time line, it changes all the time. I hope for both of them, ‘Tamasha’ becomes a high point.”
The “Highway” helmer, along with the lead pair, has pushed himself to reach a “different level” with his upcoming release.
“I know as actors, and for me as a director, we have gone to a different level in the work that we have done with ‘Tamasha’. I hope the same happens in terms of stature for both of them.”
