Ranbir-Deepika share passionate lip-lock in ‘Tamasha’


Former lovers Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are ready to scorch the screens with their passionate lip-lock scene in their upcoming film ‘Tamasha’. The film directed by Imtaiaz Ali has not one, but to two kissing scenes between the ex-sweethearts who also share a sparkling chemistry on screen.

The two scenes are also revealed in the trailer in fleeting moments – the first is a blink-and-miss that comes midway in the trailer, while another appears towards the end.

Ranbir and Deepika had shared a kiss in their first film together 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'. However, in ‘Tamasha’ the kiss between them is not very long in terms of screen time, but it is hot and intense and very different from the intimate kiss they shared in the 2008 film 'Bachna Ae Haseeno', according a leading daily which quoted a source from the film’s production unit. The source insists that the chemistry between them sizzles in 'Tamasha'.

Both the actors were in a romantic relationship for two years, from 2008 to 2010. Post their break-up, the starred opposite each other in Ayan Mukherji’s 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', three years later. The film was much talked about due to the brilliant on-screen chemistry between Ranbir and Deepika. The film also had a kissing scene between them.

While Ranbir tried to play down their on-screen romance by pointing out that they approached their roles like two actors and because of the technicalities involved, the intimate scenes were no different from the action scenes. However, he did admit, that it was easier for them because they knew each other well.

Deepika too, in an interview reasoned that chemistry is intangible, you either have it or you don't. It cannot be created and Ranbir and she were fortunate that they had it.

Deepika who had earlier worked with Imtiaz and Ranbir individually, in 'Love Aaj Kal', 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', said it was a dream for her to make a movie with them together. When the opportunity presented itself, both actors did what was required in the script professionally, without any 'tamasha' (drama), she said.

According to the source, the film revolves around two young people who meet as strangers in Corsica and hit it off immediately. They are on a break from mundane everyday reality and playfully decide that their lives on the French island will be nothing but a pack of lies and go around impersonating the characters they have been fascinated with, from Dev Anand to Don and Mona Darling. "But somewhere along the way, they fall in love. The play-acting stops and feelings become real.”

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala 'Tamasha' is scheduled to release on November 27.
