It cannot get any more intriguing than this. Deepika Padukone revealed the first poster of Tamasha, her forthcoming film with Ranbir Kapoor, on Saturday, and tongues have already started wagging at the sizzling on-screen chemistry between the stars.
Shot in Corsica and multiple locations in Delhi (Vasant Kunj, Hauz Khas village and Cyber Hub in Gurgaon), Tamasha’s poster shows the bubbly couple in a romantic pose. But what is intriguing is the backdrop of the poster: It’s Ravana along with his ten heads, a face that resembles Hanuman, and another that looks like Shiva. There is more. They see a joker and a jinn, lovers and another woman in yogi apparel.
The poster’s tag line makes it even more fascinating: “Why always the same story?”, it says.

It will be fascinating to see if director Imtiaz Ali will explore the psychology behind our folk tales or if they designs to give a twist to the way narratives are handled on the screen.
After their 2013 hit Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ranbir and Deepika are coming together in Tamasha. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Tamasha also marks Ranbir and Imtiaz coming together years after they delivered the intense Rockstar. With this film, Imtiaz is also back along with his favourite lyricist-writer Irshad Kamil.
Tamasha releases on 27 November 2015.
