‘Don’t always compare Ranbir and Ranveer’
Actor Deepika Padukone doesn’t approve of the constant comparison between co-actors Ranbir Rapoor and Ranveer Singh. “They’ve always been compared, all the time. I think their personalities, their approach to their work is theirs forever. So, I don’t find it necessary to constantly keep comparing A film to B film, A actor to B actor,” said Deepika, who on Tuesday evening came to HT City in New Delhi along with her Tamasha co-star Ranbir Kapoor and director Imtiaz Ali to meet their fans at Stars In The City.
Imtiaz was asked if it was awkward to cast ex-flames together in a film to which he said, “They are very disarming as actors with each other, they trust each other so they always know that the other is watching my back and these things is not what people expect, given the fact that they have been in a relationship in the past, but I never had a thought in my mind that there will be any kind of awkwardness. I knew they would have a great time working with each other. They are very greedy to act and do it nicely and be in a good team.”
Ranbir, who has recently quit smoking, motivated others to quit. Ranbir said, “I’ve been a big smoker, it’s been three months that I’ve quit. I may take one or two illegal drags from people, but it’s the best thing I’ve done. I hope if you guys also are thinking of quitting, you should definitely do it.”
