Friendly Fridays Chapter 51: Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor & Imtiaz Ali: Team Tamasha


Delhi University students from the ED Team got lucky this week to have grabbed a chance to interview their alumnus Imtiaz Ali, along with the lead cast of his film, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone!

We met the team during their Delhi schedule of Tamasha promotions! Exhausted with the series of movie based interviews since morning, the trio met us over a plate of Bhel Puri for some light rapid fire questions.

The informal chat began with Imtiaz Ali telling our team that, “You guys are University Students and from a Youth Blog, you better ask smart kickass questions!” to which Ranbir Kapoor added, “You better listen to your senior and surprise us“.

To start with Team ED asked them about the train journey that the entire cast undertook from Mumbai to Delhi for promotions, post which began the short fun questions!

So let’s start!

Team ED: Which would be that one quality you would want to take up from the characters in the film Tamasha?

Ranbir Kapoor: Don’t live to impress others.

Deepika Padukone: Don’t live other people’s dreams. Not particular to any character, I like the soul of this film.

Imtiaz Ali:  Parents’ expectations are what pulls you down. Also today we end up compromising on our dreams, I think that needs to stop.

Team ED: Tell us about any ‘Tamasha’ memory from your school days?

Ranbir Kapoor: Once I was sneaking out of the class from the back door and I was caught by Principal. The Principal slapped me.
“Uss thappad ki awaaz abhi tak mere college main goonjti hai”.

Deepika Padukone: Something similar, my friends and I used to sit in the fourth or the fifth bench in class, so that we do not catch that much attention like the first benchers or last benchers. As soon as the teacher used to turn to write on the board, we used to sneak out of the classroom.
