Deepika Padukone breaks down on the set of 'Ram Leela'

Deepika Padukone’s career is going great guns. This year has been exceptional for Deepika on professional front. Her three releases ‘Race 2’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and Chennai Express rocked at the box-office. Not only audiences but critics also showered praise on the actress. Now the long legged actress is looking forward to her next release, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’. Bhansali who is a tough filmmaker to satisfy was so much impressed with Deepika’s work in the movie that he praised her with full heart. Deepika got emotional with such good remarks that she could not hold her tears back and broke down.

An insider says, “On the last day of the shoot, Deepika was shooting an intense scene when Bhansali praised her in front of everyone. He said he loved her performance and that she had done a fabulous job in the film. Deepika was touched when she heard the praise, so much so that she broke down. She got emotional on hearing compliments from a hard taskmaster like Bhansali, who has also worked relentlessly on the film." 

‘Ram Leela’ is Bhansali’s dream project. He has given everything to it. The film has a special place in his heart and he gave female protagonist name Leela after his mother. As Bhansali related Deepika to his mother, she is speechless. “He told her that she’s done justice to the character Leela, so this special mention was overwhelming for Deepika,” adds the insider.  

To impress Bhansali is a tough job and only handful of actors in the industry could impress the filmmaker with their work and Deepika Padukone is one among the few. The director is known to be strict on his sets and in the past Deepika also got scolding from him.

‘Ram Leela’ stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in the lead.
