However Ranbir being Ranbir Kapoor, was not in the mood.
Says 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.”

A close friend reveals Ranbir’s association with Imtiaz is over.
