However, Ranbir being Ranbir, was not in the mood.
Says a source, “Ranbir and Imtiaz have collaborated very successfully on two films Rockstar and Tamasha. Imtiaz was keen to do a third film with Ranbir and he wanted to do Love Aaj Kal 2 with Ranbir.”
The actor declined. Ranbir is busy with his best friend Ayan Mukerjee’s marathon sci-fi epic Bhahmastra and with Yash Raj Films’Shamshera.
A close friend reveals Ranbir’s association with Imtiaz is over.
