Perhaps sometimes, every director or actor must explore what’s it like to work with other people, and maybe that would be the reason enough for this latest turn of events in the professional lives of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
As per reports, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, who have been a staple of every Sanjay Leela Bhansali film since the past six years, will not be cast for the Padmaavat director’s next directorial venture!
A source was quoted saying, “Bhansali is taking a break from this pair and his next directorial will not feature Ranveer and Deepika,”
It comes as a huge surprise to us as during a recent interview, Bhansali, while talking about Deepika Padukone, shared, “Deepika is so fabulous; she is such a jaan. I just love her. All her hard work and brilliance that she brings to the set is effortless… It’s such a pleasure to work with someone who does what she is doing at that moment with absolute honesty… Her performances are so detailed and nuanced. I’m not done with her yet,”
And on the topic of Ranveer, he said, “No other filmmaker understands Ranveer the way I do. Ranveer and I have a great chemistry and understanding. I know how to direct him and I’m aware about his limitations and strengths. I know what to do with him. He’s a very special actor. He has so much energy. I only feel he puts too much effort into ‘I did my research and I went here and did that’, all that I understand. For him to pursue his greatness, he has to be a little more effortless. He is fantastic. I am not done with him either.”
Well, guess we will have to wait a little bit longer, don’t we?
