Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone's "Tamasha" has been on every movie enthusiast's must-watch list, but looks like fans will have to wait till 2016. 

A report in DNA says the Imtiaz Ali directorial, which was eyeing a Christmas release this year, has now been delayed as the makers of "Bajirao Mastani" – starring Deepika, Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra – have the same date blocked for their film.

However, this is not the only reason for the rescheduling. Ranbir Kapoor, who had no releases in 2014, will be seen in "Roy" (13 February), "Bombay Velvet" (15 May) and "Jagga Jasoos" (27 November). And so, the star wanted some gap in between his releases.

It is also being speculated since both the films are big-budget ones and have a common female lead in Deepika, the rescheduling was inevitable. Also, Rohit Shetty's next with Shah Rukh Khan is reportedly waiting to block 25 December. So, a clash with a Khan at the box office is definitely a big no-no.

The cast and crew of "Tamasha" are currently in Delhi and a few on-set pictures have been leaked from their schedule. The photos, which show Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor enjoying hot cups of coffee in between the shoots at the national capital, are indicative of the chemistry the ex-couple shares off-screen.

Interestingly, this isn't the first time that images and videos have been recorded by onlookers. Earlier last year, during their stint at Corsica, France, the first-looks of the film and video of the two actors filming a song went viral on the Internet.

Strangely, even after beefing up security and requesting the makers to ensure no such instances are repeated, the actors have again found themselves in a similar situation.

In other news, talking about his film, the Kapoor scion said he has been wanting to understand poetry better for a while now, adding that "Tamasha" has helped him do just that. "Poetry is something that you have to understand. It is not easy. You can read poetry, but there are so many deeper meanings attached to it. I'm working with Imtiaz IN 'Tamasha', which has a lot to do with storytelling and poetry. So I hope to understand it more," IANS quoted him as saying.
