Deepika Padukone says Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s perfection has made Ramleela a tough movie

Deepika Padukone terms “Ramleela” a very tough film and says that director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is such a perfectionist that he doesn’t settle for anything less than what he has in mind.

This is Deepika Padukone’s first film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, known for making hits like “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” and “Devdas“. He also went behind the camera for “Saawariya” and “Guzaarish“, but they failed to appeal to the audiences.

Now the director-producer is coming up with “Ramleela” with Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles.

It has not been easy, it has been really mentally, physically, and emotionally demanding film. The fact that he is a perfectionist, he doesn’t let go of anything. He looks at things a certain way and it has to be more or less that way. He has a vision and everyone works towards that. So, it obviously has been a very tough journey, as exciting and challenging as it was, it has also been quite tough. So to see all of that come together, I did get a little emotional

… said Deepika Padukone, who spent over a year on this project, in an interview.

Set in a rustic region of Gujarat, “Ramleela” also stars Richa Chaddha, Gulshan Devaiah and Supriya Pathak. It will hit theaters Nov 29.
