Bhansali's 'Ram Leela' Plot Thickens As Deepika Not Confirmed Yet
By Joginder Tuteja, MovieTalkies.com, 21 July 2012
Merry go round continues for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's leading lady in his much cherished project Ram Leela. Just when it was felt that the search had ended with Priyanka Chopra, emergence of Deepika Padukone's name led to quite a few ripples. However the lady in question happens to be blissfully unaware of the developments.
"Deepika heard about the news only from the newspapers. She was surprised herself, more so because her hands are already full with films like Race 2, Kochadaiyaan and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Where are the dates", exclaims a friend of the actress.
This isn’t all as Deepika hasn't even received any feelers either. "She is yet to hear from Bhansali Sir's office", the friend continues.
When contacted, Deepika maintained a diplomatic stance. She said, "It would be every actor's dream to be working with Sanjayji. He presents his heroines so wonderfully in his films, whether it is Khamoshi', Black or Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Actresses too have looked their best and given strong performances. I have grown up watching his movies.
On being asked if she would be game for it in her hectic schedule if the film indeed falls in her lap, she said, "Of course yes, something would work out for sure. But as of now, no one has approached me and there is absolutely no progress."
The plot thickens!
