Imtiaz Ali want to cast Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone for a play and we are excited.
Imtiaz Ali shares a great bond with both the stars. While speaking about Deepika Padukone in an earlier interview, Imtiaz said, “Her career growth is out there for the whole world to see. I am the happiest about it because when I first met her, even before her debut film had released, I was so thrilled about this new actress coming into Bollywood. She is shy, so she took a long time to show what she can do. But now, there’s a sense of ease with which she approaches her work. During Love Aaj Kal I remember I had to make her comfortable and push her. Now, that’s not needed. ”
Imtiaz Ali talking about his love for theater, he once said in a statement, “Theater has been a very important element in my life. It has taught me many things that I realize now, when I’m on the sets. I never worked towards being a director. I don’t know how it happened. It still surprises me that I am a film director. Basically, my life has been a series of incidents and accidents, and I am a film director by accident. From theater, I moved to TV. But I kept steering through my career, not knowing where I was going. But cinema is the world I feel I belong to. I guess, they didn’t like me.”
