Deepika Padukone can’t thank her Ram Leela co-star Ranveer Singh enough for giving her time off to visit her parents for the New Year. Each year, Deepika likes to be with her family at year-end. However, this year she was meant to shoot for Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Ram Leela with Ranveer over the New Year’s.
Ranveer’s injury on the sets of Yash Raj Films‘ Gunday has not only affected that film but also Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Ram Leela.
Says a source, “Ranveer Singh was shooting simultaneously for Gunday and Ram Leela. In fact, the whiskered look that he sports for Sanjay Bhansali’s film has been incorporated into his personality in Gunday for the want of a choice. Remember back in 1969; how Rajesh Khanna’s bearded look in Ittefaq had to be incorporated into Do Raaste as the superstar shot simultaneously for both?”
Ranveer has lately been running from the ‘Gujarat’ sets of Ram Leela to the ‘Kolkata’ sets of Gunday. A mishap on the sets of Gunday has naturally affected the other film. Sanjay Bhansali was all set to complete the shooting of some very dramatic scenes between Ranveer and Deepika. Ranveer’s accident has forced a postponement of the proposed fireworks.
Deepika has quietly taken off to Bangalore to be with her family.
