Ex-lovers Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone's onscreen chemistry was the high point of Ayan Mukerji's "Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani". Cashing in on this rapport, ace filmmaker Imtiaz Ali roped in the adored couple for "Tamasha".
After wrapping up the first schedule in Corsica, France, the director has now taken his cast and crew members to the mountains of Shimla. "The second schedule of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone-starrer "Tamasha" has begun in the snow clad mountains of Shimla. The duo will also head to Delhi to shoot for a 90 days schedule," reported Pinkvilla.
However, there's a strong buzz that only the child artistes playing the younger versions of the lead pair will be shooting for their bit in the hills. Reports also state that Kapoor will be in Shimla for 15 days, whereas Padukone will join him in the Delhi schedule.
"The shooting of the film began in Corsica, France in July 2014. Ranbir Kapoor plays a free spirited person who wants to spread happiness and Deepika's character in the film is of an adventurous and fun-loving girl. There are several sequences which the duo were dabbling in dance and staging skits for the locals. The troupe is one of the reasons for the film's title Tamasha," The Times of India quoted a source.
This is Ali's second film with the Kapoor scion after "Rockstar", but Padukone will be working with the director for the first time ever. Looking at a December 2015 release, the film's music has been composed by A R Rahman.
Kapoor, who is simultaneously shooting for "Roy" and "Bombay Velvet", maintains a healthy and professional relationship with ex-flame Padukone. The "Happy NewYear" actress will be next seen in Shoojit Sircar's "Piku", for which she has already shot portions in Kolkata alongside Amitabh Bachchan, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Bajirao Mastani".
