Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor, one of Bollywood's best onscreen pair, are set to team up for a third time.
The actors, who had first paired up in "Bachna Ae Haseeno" (2008) while they were dating, also starred together in the blockbuster "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" last year, years after their breakup. And now, the duo will be seen together in Imtiaz Ali's upcoming film.
The film's name, which was previously set as "Window Seat", has now been changed to "Tamasha", reported Mid Day.
"Ranbir had already said yes to Imtiaz's next film, but now Deepika has also given the project her nod. The film was earlier called Window Seat, but it has now been changed to 'Tamasha'. Imtiaz has also roped in AR Rahman for the film's music and Irshad Kamil will pen lyrics for it," the tabloid quoted a source.
Padukone, while speaking about her upcoming films recently, confirmed Ali's project and revealed she was excited to team up with "great friend" Kapoor again.
"A film that I'm allowed to talk about is Imtiaz Ali's next where Ranbir (Kapoor) and I are again coming together. Imtiaz is one of my favourite directors. And Ranbir and I have given hits such as 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' (2013) and 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' (2008). I'm really excited to be working on yet another film with someone who is a great friend," the actress told Hindustan Times recently.
The film, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala , is expected to start rolling from June-July this year, and will be shot in India and a remote European island, according to earlier reports. Director Ali had also revealed the film is not about a romantic relationship but about self-discovery.
