Some two days ago rumors spread like wildfire regarding Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone visiting Pakistan. It was reported on various websites Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will be visiting Karachi, Pakistan on a conditional visa on the 22nd November to promote and attend a premiere of their new film Tamasha. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, both bigshots in Bollywood, will appear as leads in the movie however, them coming to Pakistan for the promotion of their new film sounded too good to be true. Alas, it really was!
IMGC is responsible for distribution of the movie Tamasha. According to the Abid Rasheed, Executive Director of IMGC, the rumors regarding Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone visiting Pakistan are false. He stated that there was no truth to the rumors whatsoever. They will be showing their faces in Pakistan but that news has been misinterpreted in the most absurd manner. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will be making an appearance in Lahore, Pakistan via, wait for it, Skype. Yes, that’s the real truth folks. The Bollywood duo will not be visiting Karachi in person but instead will join local media in Lahore via a video conferencing platform. Rahseed said,
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.
It would seem that online media in Pakistan went a haywire with their coverage of this particular rumor. News over various websites went as far as saying that the notable duo will be meeting important media personalities in Pakistan, while some even stated that they will be signed for joint productions with India. Javed Sheikh stars in the movie as Ranbir Kapoor’s father and that is all the “Pakistan” that Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will be seeing. The movie has been gathering a lot of hype because of the star cast (with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone being an ex-couple) and the fact the soundtrack for Tamasha has been composed by AR Rahman. We apologize to break this news ladies and gentlemen, but let’s hope they do visit Pakistan sometime.You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ for more updates.
