Tamasha is your third film with Deepika Padukone. How was the experience this time?

 I learnt a lot working with Deepika. We began with Bachna Ae Haseeno which was the second film in both our careers, and then we did Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani which was a big hit. To see her grow as an actor to this extent is really heart-warming, encouraging and inspiring for me. For me, Tamasha is very special because of our team - it’s also my second film with director Imtiaz Ali after Rockstar, my second film with producer Sajid Nadiadwala after Anjaana Anjaani, and my eleventh film with co-producer Siddharth Roy Kapur!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani was a blockbuster. Do you think Deepika is your lucky charm?

It is not fair to label anyone as a lucky charm. Deepika has worked very dedicatedly to be in her position. I hope her luck works on me and not mine on her.

Your chemistry with Deepika is well-liked. What do you feel?

It’s very good. It depends on Tamasha, if the film becomes successful, then everyone will be happy to see us together.

Since your last two films haven’t done well, are you feeling the pressure that this film should succeed?

There is less pressure because we have talented people like Deepika and Imtiaz on board. Imtiaz always brings the best in me and so does Deepika. Imtiaz’s Rockstar taught me a lot and fetched me a lot of success and awards.

What are your plans for September 28, your birthday?

I am working on my birthday and it’s great. It’s a day which makes me sad. I have been told that you should feel special on that day but it has never met those expectations. Hence it is better to be working on that day.
