Can't get married till Deepika allows her ex to? Jab ladka ladki raazi..., says Ranbir -
11/25/2015 8:53:11 AM

Deepika Padukone recently made heads turn when she said in a recent interview that her ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor needs to get a green signal from her in order to settle down. But the comment hasn't gone down too well with Ranbir.

Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone were once the lovebirds that almost every Bollywood fan idolised. But soon enough, things went sour between the two ex-flames. So much so, that Deepika, who had broken up with Ranbir after a year of dating him, went on record to say that her ex-boyfriend should endorse a condom brand, hinting at being cheated on by him. But that's all in the past now. Burying the hatchet, the ex-lovers reunited on the silver screen in the 2013 film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. From being amicable to close friends yet again, Ranbir and Deepika have come a long way in their personal relationship.

While Deepika is reportedly in a steady relationship with actor Ranveer Singh, Ranbir has been in a live-in with his girlfriend Katrina Kaif for quite some time. Ranveer and Deepika are yet to announce their relationship status to the world, and rumours surrounding Ranbir and Katrina's much-awaited wedding has always been the fodder for rumours mills.

Moreover, Deepika recently made heads turn when she said in a recent interview that her ex-boyfriend needs to get a green signal from her in order to settle down. But the comment hasn't gone down too well with Ranbir. The 33-year-old actor, who was recently in the capital to promote his upcoming film Tamasha with co-star Deepika, was quite surprised at her comment and said, "Maine suna hai you usually take your parents' permission (while getting married)."

Ranbir's tongue-in-cheek reply left Deepika embarrassed, but the Rockstar actor did not stop here. He also added, "Jab ladka ladki raazi, toh kya karega kazi."

But it isn't just their personal life that has kept the audiences intrigued this long. The two are coming back on the 70mm with Imtiaz Ali's much-talked-about film Tamasha. And the lead actors did keep the media entertained with their own Tamasha at the Delhi presser.Ranbir, who will romance Deepika on screen for the third time, says that his upcoming film is very different from their earlier projects together. "Tamasha is unlike any film that I have done with Deepika. Ek love story mein jo conflict hota hai vo aapko rulaata hai, aur pyaar aapko hasaata hai, aur dard aapko achha insaan banata hai. So, as a filmmaker or a cinema person, it's your responsibility to show these three things in a novel way with each story. But having said that, Romeo Juliet or Heer Ranjha or Laila Majnu all have the same story. You can pick up a scene from any one and join them, and they look like one story. See, I believe, if it's not a happy ending, that means it's not the end," says Ranbir.amasha is a love story which takes place in Corsica and just like his other films, Imtiaz yet again tells a new story with travel as one of the main themes in his film. From Socha Na Tha to Highway, travel has been an integral part of his stories, and more than the real travel, it's the journey within that the filmmaker focuses on in his scripts. But Imtiaz says that the use of travel isn't intentional. "When I am writing the script, I don't have it in my mind. But when I watch my films or answer your questions, I realise that there might be some truth in it. Maybe I am trying subconsciously to use travel as a simile for the journey of life. Between the mind and the heart, there is always a struggle," says the Jab We Met director.


He adds, "I think something which is forbidden or difficult or something which is not completely in your grasp is more exciting. You crave for what you don't have, and in trying to achieve that, you have to take a lot of steps that redefine you. There is a certain format in life, and when you feel something very strongly for something which is not in the format of your life, you take the journey across and that is dramatic."  

This is the second time that Imtiaz has worked with Deepika and the filmmaker is all praise for his leading lady, who he feels has come a long way since her debut in films almost 8 years ago. "I feel that Deepika is an extremely passionate and an unusually sensitive person. I think she took time to bring that out in her performance. Because it was so much, it took her time to release that into her performance. And now the generation loves her because she has been able to show her true self. She is a very shy person and now she has learnt to not get that shyness in her performance," says Imtiaz.  

Ever since the trailer of Tamasha hit the screens, more than Ranbir-Deepika's chemistry, it's the tagline "Why the same love story" that has left many intrigued. Imtiaz says that the audience should take back this tagline from the film once they return from the theatres. "They (audience) should ask themselves that have they become mechanical in life or are they doing what they want to do in their life. They should ask themselves that whether their story is unique or like any other story," adds the 44-year-old director.

Tamasha is set to hit the screens on November 27.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed the Indian diaspora in Singapore. Here are ten highlights from his speech. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed the Indian diaspora in Singapore. Here are ten highlights from his speech.â  

The festival of Deepawali just went by. But I was told Little India has kept the light alive and extended it to a week. My gratitude to all Singaporeans on this. I have come to Singapore earlier. But this is different. The world is applauding India not because of Modi, but because of my fellow brothers and sisters who live abroad.

No one in India can imagine the mood of Singapore here. My heartfelt thanks to all of you. The reason for improvement in India's global image is the the people of India. You made Singapore your own despite adverse conditions.

India has opened up railways for 100 per cent FDI. New technology and speed will come.

Any global citizen can now invest in the rupee bond. The rupee bond signifies India's liberation.

India even imports tear gas shells. We import also for our tears. I do not know whether to laugh or cry. India has youth, talent and talent to make its own weapons.

Defence deals have always been marrred by corruption. The last 18 months of governance and transparent decisions taken one after another. No one has been able to point a single finger.

India has the advantage of youth power. When the country is full of youthfulness, ambitions, dreams and manpower is also youthful.

Have told people all over the world, including the Indian diaspora, to visit India whenever the weather at their place is bad. Stay in India for six months, let kids study there, and after six months when it starts to get warm, return to your homes.

We need renewable, wind and nuclear energy. No one thought about going beyond megawatts. For the first time, India has thought in terms of 175 gigawatt renewable energy.

We are those who have seen divinity [Shiva] in nature - all living beings and plants.

The details of the controversial vacation that the Congress MP took between February-April 2015, across four southeast Asian nations.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's 60-day vacation trip to four South Asian nations, mostly sponsored by a foreign company, is back in limelight. India Today has accessed the specific details of where the Congress leader was from February 16 to April 16, 2015. The specific details of the leader's sabbatical are  following:
ahul took off from New Delhi on February 16.
The Congress leader was on a vacation for 60 days, not 56 days as reported earlier, across four southeast Asian nations.
He reached Bangkok on February 16 itself and spent a day there.
On February 17, he flew from Bangkok to Cambodia, where he spent 11 days.
He was back again for a day in Bangkok on February 28.
From Bangkok, Rahul flew to Myanmar where he spent 21 days, the longest time of the trip, from March 1-21.
On March 22, he comes back to Thailand and visits the Buddhist Heritage Centre at Ayutthaya. He spends 9 days there.
On March 31, the leader flies to Vietnam and returns to Bangkok on April 12.
From April 12 to April 16, Rahul was in Bangkok.
On April 16, Rahul Gandhi lands in India.
The Congress MP visited Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam. According to information available, he spent 11 days Cambodia, 12 days in Vietnam and 15 days in Thailand. The young MP spent a maximum number of 21 days in Myanmar. During this foreign trip, Congress leader Satish Sharma's son Sameer accompanied Rahul.
Rahul's visit of Myanmar, which is not considered safe for a SPG protectee, has raised eyebrows. Last time, the SPG expressed concern about his security but Rahul allowed them to accompany him till Bangkok.
India Today Television's Rahul Kanwal debated the revelations with a set of panelists including BJP's Sudhanshu Mittal, Congress' Shobha Ojha, JNU professor Kamal Mitra Chenoi and journalist Siddharth Vardarajan. The big questions discussed on Rahul's controversial foreign tour:
1. Who foots Rahul's chartered plane bills while he flies from country to countries?
2. Why Rahul visists foreign countries sans security cover? If any untoward happens who will be responsible for this?In a jibe aimed at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who took a two-month long sabbatical at a then unknown location abroad, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on April 30 had said that the nation at least knows where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is.
Jaitley had also countered Rahul's "suit boot ki sarkar" jibe when he said, "Yeh soojh-boojh (reason) ki sarkar hai, suit-boot ki nahin."On April 16, India Today had exclusively published the air tickets the Congress MP used during his travel. In a recap of events, the 44-year-old leader left New Delhi on February 16 by a Thai Airways flight, days before Parliament's Budget session was supposed to begin. The vacation after the Congress witnessed a series of losses in all the elections since the Lok Sabha polls in 2014.
The Gandhi scion arrived at 11.15 am on a Thai Airways plane from Bangkok. The plane, which was scheduled to land at 10.35 am, was delayed by 40 minutes, sources said. Gandhi, whose name was mentioned as Rahulmr Gandhi on ticket, travelled by business class. Shortly after the 44-year-old leader reached his Tughlaq Lane residence in central Delhi, he was visited by his mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi and later, by sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
