The 33-year-old actor said Imtiaz wanted it to be a part of the film and he worked hard on getting the voice and nuances of the Bollywood legend right.

"He becomes Dev Anand and she becomes a prostitute. It was fun doing that because Dev Anand is the king of romance and we did not want to make fun of him but pay a homage to him so it was fun doing. I did a lot of classes from mimic artist because it is very hard to mimic those dialogues," Ranbir said in an interview here.

'Tamasha' has been majorly shot in Corsica and the 'Barfi' star said the whole team had a great time shooting in the island. The 'Rockstar' actor also revealed that his co-star and ex-girlfriend Deepika has a fun side to her, which many people are not aware of.

Ranbir, who has worked with Imtiaz in the 2011 hit musical 'Rockstar', met him for the first time on the sets of 'Love Aaj Kal' and became jealous of the director then because Deepika was impressed by his looks.

'Tamasha' will hit theaters on November 27.
