We don’t find any filmmaker as elusive as Imtiaz Ali. This guy literally lives in a shell, or maybe he hides into one the moment he smells ‘media’ around him. Albeit this Mr. India makes himself visible around the time of his film’s release. Hence, Imtiaz Ali turned off his ‘invisible’ button and recently appeared on Neha Dhupia’s famous podcast – No Filter Neha Season 2. Thanks to his recent release ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’.

And we’re beyond surprised to find him in his most candid moments, unleashing a hitherto unknown side of his personality. One that is quirky, witty and even too bindaas. It was during one of these moments of freewheeling chat with Neha, Imtiaz revealed a lot about Ranbir Kapoor. Imtiaz and Ranbir have been friends for a very long time. And bonded well especially during the shooting of ‘Rockstar’.
During the podcast, Neha asked Imtiaz what does he think about Ranbir Kapoor and his ‘flirt’ image in the film industry? “Ranbir I think is the biggest disaster. Is he a flirt? Not at all! I think he is a victim of flirtation. I mean he tries. He tries but he just gets very nervous about it. There was a time when he kind of liked a girl in Delhi. We were shooting so I said, well, I’m going to introduce her to you because I know her and so, have a chat. So he said ya ya do that.”

“Then I went to talk to her about something else and he was so nervous, he kept clawing at me and trying to pull me back because he thought that I’m going to say something which will spill his beans.What beans? That my friend finds you attractive? He couldn’t bear to have that known about him. So this is not the sign of a flirt at all,” Imtiaz told Neha.
Here’s a quick precap of his quite interesting conversation and all his confessions to Neha Dhupia….

In the above video, Imtiaz’s first reaction on the name of Ranbir Kapoor was that he is boring. For the complete conversation, you’ll have to wait for the full episode. Meanwhile, we hope Ranbir will watch this.
