Ranbir Kapoor had been gone from the big screen for over a year until "Roy" hit the theatres in February. And now that he's back, the Kapoor scion is being careful about his moves.
With "Bombay Velvet" (15 May) and Jagga Jasoos (27 November) slated to release this year, the actor reportedly wants Imtiaz Ali's "Tamasha" to be pushed to 2016 so that there is sufficient gap between all his releases.
While this may benefit RK, his ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone is now left with just one release this year. This might have a negative impact on the actress' career, unless of course Shoojit Sircar's "Piku" (30 April) shines at the box-office. The comedy-drama focuses on the relationship between a father-daughter duo, and stars Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan, and Jisshu Sengupta.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus, starring DP, Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra, which was scheduled for a 25 December release, has now been reportedly moved to mid-2016, thanks to its ambitious VFX work.
"Bhansali is known to shoot on a lavish scale, and he takes his time in order to get the best out of everything. The film has ten songs, and one of them features all three actors. Also, since it's a period film, it will involve a lot of VFX, and this process will take a lot of time to complete," a source said, Hindustan Times reported.
However, the delay in RK-DP starrer "Tamasha" has a couple of more theories to it. While few reports suggest that the film has been delayed as the makers didn't want it to clash with Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty's film which is eyeing for a Christmas release, others say to have two releases with Deepika Padukone in the lead ("Tamasha", "Bajirao Mastani") would affect the box office numbers in a huge way.
