Deepika Padukone arrives in Kolkata for ‘Tamasha’


Recently captured images of Deepika Padukone and Imtiaz Ali, show them hard at work in the ‘City of Joy’. On the 16th of January, the two were seen at old Kolkata terminal. Deepika was in the city shooting a sequence for her upcoming movie ‘Tamasha’. Deepika was glad because of the presence of fans. She happily signed autographs, posed for pictures and even waved at the paparazzi.

The actress, who recently and very proudly confessed to be battling depression, looked stunning in a floral black top, jeans and chic mustard yellow jacket. This film is being shot in different parts of the world. First the cast and crew were busy in France. Next, they visited Shimla and after the shoot in Kolkata ends, Team ‘Tamasha’ will be headed to Delhi for the final sequence. Deepika’s costar in this movie is Ranbir Kapoor.

Ranbir and Deepika’s on-screen chemistry was first observed in ‘Bachna Ae Haseenon’. This lovely couple will again be seen together in ‘Tamasha’. Real life exes, Ranbir and Deepika still manage to uphold their chemistry in films as was seen in ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’. Fans can be certain that there will be a considerable amount of romance, chemistry and magic in ‘Tamasha’ as well. Not just because of the hit onscreen couple but also because of director Imtiaz Ali, who specializes in the genre.  

In ‘Tamasha’ Ranbir’s character is that of a nomad and Deepika plays a comic book enthusiast. Both these actors are known for experimenting with different roles. In this movie the characters accidentally meet in Corsica, in France. Deepika is visiting Corsica and exploring the place as it is the background setting in the comic series ‘Asterix’. The two later on, form a troupe to stage plays. A source revealed that “Ranbir’s character is that of a gregarious and altruistic wanderer. He travels from place to place, never knowing what comes next, but he enjoys the journey and pleasing others”. The characters are quite unconventional hence; ‘Tamasha’ will be an interesting watch due to the quirkiness of the leading couple.

A R Rahman, Bollywood’s leading musical maestro has composed the music for this film. It is his second time working with Imtiaz. ‘Tamasha’ also happens to be Ranbir and Deepika’s 2nd film with the director. While Deepika played the lead in ‘Love Aaj Kal’, Ranbir delivered a rocking performance in ‘Rockstar’. All of Deepika, Ranbir and Imtiaz’s fans are eagerly awaiting this movie, which is likely to release around Christmas.
