He is gearing up for a big release opposite Deepika Padukone and considering the fact that his last few outings were flop, Ranbir Kapoor can certainly use some experiment. And to experiment, he wants to go the neighbouring country and work in a Pakistani movie!
Speaking with Pakistani media via a video conference arranged on Friday for promotioning Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha , Ranbir Kapoor said, “I can look at a quality project with a great story. My family has always worked for the welfare of cinema. It is true that the Indian film industry is bigger compared to Pakistan s industry. The promotion and well-being of film culture in the region is the responsibility of local artists.
There has been a speculation in the Pakistani entertainment industry about a possible appearance by the duo at their film’s Karachi premiere. The young star noted that his family elders have in the past paid numerous visits to Pakistan for both professional and personal reasons.

“Even I want to visit. There are so many cities and locations that I have to see,” Ranbir said. He added there was no competition between Pakistan and India films and both should work for the promotion of film culture in the region.
The actor expressed hopes that Tamasha would turn the tide as it is does not have a cliched story and music. “The audience will not forget the film’s music for years to come.” Ranbir said he would love to see Pakistani audiences turn up in large numbers for his film and make it a big success.
Deepika, 29, said Tamasha is a family film with a very interesting story that has something for all sections of the society. The actress said it is a film, which has a strong portrayal of a woman, who never compromises on truth and added she was keen to see how women like the film, especially her role.
