He has shot films across the world, but ac­tor Ran­bir Kapoor (above, right) says he loves shoot­ing in Delhi and es­pe­cially its var­ied facets that film­maker Im­tiaz Ali en­cap­su­lates in his movies. Whether it was Love Aaj Kal (2009), Rock­star (2011), High­way (2014) or his up­com­ing film with Deepika Padukone, el­e­ments of Delhi have al­ways been a part of Im­tiaz’s films. Ran­bir said, “The film has its in­tense mo­ments... Our Cor­sica leg was amaz­ing, and the Delhi por­tion was great too. I don’t think any­one cap­tures Delhi the way Im­tiaz does, whether it’s his Love Aaj Kal, High­way or Rock­star. No other di­rec­tor jus­ti­fies Delhi bet­ter than Im­tiaz... He un­der­stands Delhi, the heart of Delhi, its char­ac­ters, its peo­ple, its lan­guage.”

The ac­tor also be­lieves that when they are put in real lo­ca­tions such as those used by Im­tiaz, it adds to the per­for­mance. “You feel the world, you feel the smell, you feel the food and feel the vibe. Delhi is by far my favourite place to shoot,” he said.

Ran­bir’s sis­ter Rid­dhima is also mar­ried to a Delhi en­tre­pre­neur and lives in the Cap­i­tal. So, each time Ran­bir is in Delhi, he makes it a point to spend some time with his niece Sa­mara.

Ran­bir was in the Cap­i­tal city on Tues­day evening to soak in the Di­wali fes­tiv­ity and was ac­com­pa­nied by Deepika Padukone.

No other di­rec­tor jus­ti­fies Delhi bet­ter than Im­tiaz... whether it’s his Love Aaj Kal, High­way or Rock­star... He un­der­stands Delhi, the heart of Delhi, its peo­ple, its char­ac­ter You feel the world, you feel the smell, you feel the food and feel the vibe. Delhi is by far my favourite place to shoot
