Be it Jab We Met, Tamasha, Rockstar or Socha Na Tha, Imtiaz Ali deals with the complexities of characters in the most sensitive manner. His stories are less about the society and more about the journey of knowing oneself. 

You might connect with them or totally wash them out, but it is difficult to ignore his stories. While you might have your favorite, ever wondered which character resonates the most with the director himself? 

Talking to a leading tabloid, Imtiaz said, "It’s really difficult to answer that. But, I would wish to be like Aditya [Jab We Met, 2007], a simple and sweet guy, or even Geet [laughs]. I am not even as stupid as Jordan [Rockstar, 2011] nor as sorted as Meera [Love Aaj Kal, 2009]. I think I come the closest to Ved [Tamasha, 2015]."

For those who loved Tamasha, you might agree that Ved was indeed one of the finest characters written. 

Imtiaz also opened up about how his definition of love has changed over the years. 

"It has changed with every film. From Socha Na Tha (2005) to Jab Harry Met Sejal, I can see that my characters are more connected to themselves. I believe that until you have a [fulfilling] relationship with yourself, you can’t have a [satisfying] relationship with anyone else. Also, the word ‘love’ can easily misguide people. I’ve realized that it signifies different things to different people," he said. 

The director is currently all geared up for the release of his upcoming film Jab Harry Met Sejal with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. The movie release this Friday on August 4, 2017.
