Deepika Padukune, beau Ranveer to attend Bhansali’s birthday

Deepika Padukone is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s muse. The diva has done remarkable movies with the ace filmmaker and their latest joint creation is ‘Padmaavat’ which despite facing many hurdles emerged victorious and garnered over 276 crores worldwide and inching towards Rs 500 crore club.

To mark the grand success of the periodic drama, the team has planned a lavish party over the weekend at Ark Deck Bar, a floating restaurant in Mumbai. The team of ‘Padmaavat’ has planned to organize the party on February 24th coinciding with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 56th birthday.

"The team did not want a run-of-the-mill party at a five star. So they zeroed in on the Ark Deck Bar, the floating restaurant that has an open-air bar deck, a sit-down restaurant and private dining areas. It not only offers stunning view as it sails off the coast into the sea, but will also give the stars privacy from the paparazzi," a source told.

The party will be attended by Deepika and Ranveer Singh but Shahid Kapoor, who is filming ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ in Uttarakhand will give the party a miss. "Shahid won't be present as he's shooting in Tehri. A guest list of about 150 people has been drawn up that includes other Bollywood stars as well. The Ark is just a boat ride away from the Sea Link jetty. Everyone including Deepika and Ranveer will be ferried across”, a source added.

The party menu comprises of European, Indian, Italian and pan-Asian cuisines.
