Post the success of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ both Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are at the peak of their career. “When you have people who are commercially strong it takes off the pressure.

That’s all you can do.” Is it a love story? “It’s a boy and girl story. All the stories I make end up being love stories. I don’t know why that happens,” Imtiaz says with a smile.
