Imtiaz Ali: Ranbir Kapoor's acting is unadulterated

Imtiaz Ali is all set to kick-start TAMASHA (earlier titled as WINDOW SEAT) with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. For someone who has worked with both actors before in ROCKSTAR and LOVE AAJ KAL respectively, one waits to see what the director has in plans for TAMASHA where he is collaborating with Sajid Nadiadwala (HIGHWAY) again.
When asked what lies ahead for him when it comes to directing Ranbir, Imtiaz says, 'When I work with Ranbir, I don't see him getting into a star mode at all. He approaches a film purely as an actor. He enjoys what he does in front of the camera and I feel that his entire approach towards acting is the most unadulterated. We saw that in ROCKSTAR and the premise of TAMASHA encourages that too.'
He is starting the film much quicker than any of his earlier films, considering the fact that he takes time between movies. What prompted him to go on floors so soon after HIGHWAY, which just released just a few weeks back?
'In fact I may always want to make a movie quickly but then sometimes it takes time. You can never have a heart of pushing a child out before it is ready to be delivered. This is the reason why I don't carry any regret that my films have arrived after gaps. The only thing that I think about before bringing a film on floors is that when people watch it in theater, they should like it,' says Imtiaz.
Going by Imtiaz's track record so far, rest assured audience would say the same for TAMASHA too when it hits the screens next year.
