Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one director who clearly has picked out his favorite actors in the industry, Aishwary Rai Bachchan being one of them. After Aishwarya took a break from film industry to start a family, Sanjay had no option but to find a new muse in Deepika Padukone. This actress-director duo have done three movies together, Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Guzaarish.
A source close to the director said that the director wants Aiswarya to do a special number for ‘Padmavati’. Though Deepika has already started the shooting for the film. Earlier, Aishwarya was offered ‘Ram Chahe Leela’ but it went to Priyanka Chopra. Padmavati is the third time that Ranveer Singh and Deepika have been cast together by Bhansali – the other two instances being Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani. Both films had a great run at the box-office.
