‘Don’t al­ways com­pare Ran­bir and Ran­veer’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.”
