The grape wine was abuzz that teh dashing duo was due in Pakistan to promote their upcoming movie “Tamasha” But, it sounded too good to be true. However, it was just a rumour.
Abid Rasheed, Executive Director of IMGC — the company distributing the movie in Pakistan — said that “these reports are only rumors and none of this is true.” He explained that the duo will instead be joining local media in Lahore via Skype.
“The actors would only be joining the local media for a press conference online on November 22 whereas the premiere of the film is expected to take place on November 26,” he said.
Local publications seem to have gone overboard with their coverage of the whole matter, even stating that the Bollywood actors are expected to meet notable film personalities in Pakistan. Some said several local filmmakers are expected to sign them for joint productions with India.
Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Tamasha also features Pakistani actor Javed Sheikh who will is playing Ranbir Kapoor’s father in the movie.
The film has already created a lot of hype, not only because of the Ranbir-Deepika pairing, but also for its soundtrack which has been composed by Academy Award-winning music director AR Rahman.
