Rishi Kapoor Says Ranbir Kapoor Will Work With Imitiaz Ali
According to Rishi Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor will be working with director Imtiaz Ali.
"I'm positive that in 2010, Imtiaz and Ranbir would be beginning a film together. They have been meeting on a regular basis and are just looking at finalising on something concrete before they make a formal announcement," says Rishi Kapoor, who had been a part of Love Aaj Kal directed by Imitiaz Ali.
But the ace actor has denied that he is not aware of the genre, subject, and leading lady of the movie as well as other details of the movie.
"I never get involved in the creative aspects of Ranbir's films. He takes all his decisions himself. All I know is that Ranbir working with Imtiaz would be a great decision since I have now witnessed Imtiaz's sensibilities on a first hand basis after working with him," said Rishi Kapoor.
"While working on the film, I realised that this boy (Imtiaz) is so cultured, sensible and simple. There is a saying that one's character gets reflected in his work. It was there for everyone to see in 'Love Aaj Kal', which was so honest and sincere, just like Imtiaz," he said.
Ranbir is currently working for Raj Kumar Santoshi’ "Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani" and Prakash Jha’ "Rajneeti". He will soon be seen with Shimit Amin for "Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year" and Ayan Mukerji in "Wake Up Sid".
When asked about it, Imtiaz said: "Honestly speaking, nothing has been finalised yet. Yes, Ranbir and I have been meeting each other for quite some time and have been bouncing off story ideas. Still, we are yet to close on a story line”.
"I have always placed my story before anything else. Whether it is 'Love Aaj Kal', 'Jab We Met' or 'Socha Na Tha', the story has always been of paramount importance”, he disclosed.
When asked about roping in Ranbir, "I definitely want to work with him. However, I will announce my cast once the story is finalised. Making any comments before that would be immaterial and unwarranted," he said.
