Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who is going through a rough phase in his career, says he has a lot to prove with his upcoming film Tamasha.
Ranbir’s last few films like Besharam, Roy and Anurag Kashyap’s ambitious project Bombay Velvet bombed at the box-office. The Rockstar actor will be seen opposite his former girlfriend Deepika Padukone in Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha.
“I have a lot to prove (with Tamasha). There is <g data-gr-id="39">lot</g> (riding on me as an actor) as my last three films haven’t done well at the box office.
“I have given <g data-gr-id="44">equal</g> amount of respect and hard work to all the films. We have made a good engaging film and hope the audience likes it,” Ranbir told reporters last night.
When asked if he would like to do an epic film, the actor jokingly said, “I think Bombay Velvet was an epic <g data-gr-id="45">film</g> but it did not become one.”
Ranbir has denied reports that he and Tamasha co-star Deepika Padukone got emotional on the last day of the film’s shoot.
“I don’t think anybody got emotional as it was written. We all were happy. It is my second film with Imtiaz Ali and Sajid Nadiadwala and third film with Deepika (Padukone). For me, I was overwhelmed,” Ranbir said.
There were reports that Ranbir and Deepika had an emotional breakdown after the wrap-up shoot of Tamasha.
“This film went very fast and we never felt the duration of the film and we had fun shooting for it. It was not as intense as “Rockstar” so there was no emotion as such we were happy and excited that we finished this film,” Ranbir, 32, added
Ranbir, Deepika, Imtiaz Ali and the film’s producers Sajid Nadiadwala and Siddharth Roy Kapoor were present during the <g data-gr-id="38">wrap up</g> party.
“We have wrapped up the film so we thought we should have a <g data-gr-id="40">wrap up</g> party for the cast and crew. It is a farewell party. The promotions will start two months before its release,” he said.
