Deepika Padukone wishes Sanjay Leela Bhansali on his birthday


Its Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s birthday today and Deepika Padukone, who gave maximum hits with Bhansali wished her mentor and filmmaker very adorably.

Sharing a hugging picture from ‘Bajirao Mastani’, Deepika wrote, “Happy Happy Birthday! No words can ever describe how much I love you #SanjayLeelaBhansali.”

Deepika shares a great working relationship with Bhansali and she delivered hits like ‘Ram leela’, ‘Bajirao mastani’, ‘Padmaavat’ with the maverick filmmaker.

Sharing her experience with working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Deepika said, "With Sanjay Leela Bhansali, you don't count the number of takes, you just go with the flow. You have to switch off from things like your heavy headgear, costume or how uncomfortable the duppata is on your head."

"When the camera is on, it is all about what I am doing and the energy. After the shoot, you realise (there are) injuries," Deepika told reporters here at the 3D trailer launch of the film last night.

"When I did the first film (Ram Leela), I felt I have to rehearse, be prepared as an actor on the sets. I have to know exactly what I have to do and deliver exactly in the way he (Bhansali) wants."

"But halfway through 'Bajirao Mastani', I realised that I have to trust him and go with the flow." Deepika said 'Padmavati' was the first film in a while to have made her feel nervous about her performance.

"... I feel there is something about this one, it is not from the heart or mind, it is from the gut. It is coming from a completely different place. It has been an extremely emotional journey for us, especially after the trailer launch."

 Aditi Rao Hydari, who had worked with Bhansali in Padmaavat, took to social media and wished the filmmaker on his special day. She wrote, "Happyyyyyyyyy birthday to the bestestestest.... love you lotssss sanjay sir.... #sanjayleelabhansali."
